    Unhappy New PT Deck

    I have a new pressure treated deck installed. I want to know how long should I wait to stain and seal this new deck.

    I was told to wait 12 months to let the wood thoroughly dry out.

    When they make pressure treated lumber they under high pressure inject a wood preservative. It needs to dry out before you stain I was told 12 months also.
