Regarding this, can I put oil based deck stain over water based?
It's OK to use oil-based stain over water-based as long as you clean and prepare the existing surface well.
Secondly, can you put decking oil on top of stain? Anyway, don't apply oil over a deck stain. The deck stain works because it contains pigment and a binder (usually oil or water-based finish) to bond the pigment in the wood. You don't want a build because it will peel if water gets underneath.
Correspondingly, should I use oil or water based deck stain?
Oil molecules are smaller than water molecules so it penetrates better in comparison. The better a wood decking stain penetrates the better it performs and lasts. By nature, oil based deck stains are easier to apply than water based. Oils stains are normally more natural looking than water based stains.
