Beside this, can you stain wood in cold weather?
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. Give the wood time to warm up if it's colder than the room air.
Additionally, what happens if you stain in cold weather? If it's too wet or cold, the drying time for stains can easily double. In extreme cases, the product will just stay wet until the humidity decreases or the temperatures rises. Oppositely, if it's too warm, the stain will dry very quickly and could lead to lap marks or uneven penetration.
Herein, what temperature is too cold to stain a deck?
Avoid the Cold If you're staining your deck in the spring or fall, wait for a day with highs above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, make sure freezing temperatures aren't in the forecast for that night. If it drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit before the stain has thoroughly dried, it can hinder the curing process.
Can you stain wood inside?
