Similarly, it is asked, what temperature can you stain wood?
50 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit
Also, does temperature affect wood staining? Wood stain works in a wide range of temperatures. Staining at temperatures ranging from 50 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit usually works, but the optimal temperature is around the mid-70s, not too hot and not too cold.
Also to know is, can you stain in hot weather?
High temperatures are a big concern while applying the stain. If it's too hot, the stain may dry too quickly, potentially causing lap marks and uneven penetration. Avoid staining your deck if it's above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It's okay if the temperature rises after the stain is applied and has begun to dry.
Can you stain in the sun?
Never apply deck stain in direct sunlight on a hot day. Staining a deck in the sun and/or on an extremely hot day can cause the stain to flash dry on the surface. Flash drying also causes the stain to appear uneven and blotchy giving you poor results.
