Moreover, should I use a brush or roller to stain my deck?
Rollers are a great way to apply wood stain as well for the speed at which you can apply the stain. However, when using rollers can be a disadvantage when you have hard to reach areas. If you are going to use a roller to apply your stain, make sure to have a brush as well for those hard to reach areas.
Subsequently, question is, can you use a paint roller to stain a fence? Paint rollers aren't the only way to stain a fence. Paintbrushes often provide adequate, even coverage, but at a slow pace. If you're doing this alone or have limited time to complete your project, you may look into using a paint sprayer.
Also question is, how do you stain wood with a roller?
Using a Roller or Wool Pad Pour the stain into a paint tray. This makes it easy to evenly load the roller or pad. Use the ridged section of the tray to wipe of excess stain. Apply the stain to an area two or three boards wide, making sure to maintain a wet edge at all times.
What kind of roller do you use to seal a deck?
Nap Length: Select based on the texture of the surface and how smooth a result is desired.
- 3/16 - ¼-inch roller covers will provide smooth results on smooth surfaces.
- 3/8 - ½-inch roller covers are best for use on lightly textured surfaces such as like-new wood.
