I have recently added 150 square feet to my wood deck. I have completed the deck and am deciding on stain or paint? I purchased the house a year ago. I think the previous owner had once applied a stain to the deck. Since I am on a budget and the origianal deck boards are in good shape, but very oxidized. So now I have new deck boards with old deck boards. I am concerned if I stain I will have trouble matching the new and the old. Also I was told not to do anything to the new boards til next spring.
I live in the northeast and get plenty of snow and moisture.
Can someone please recomend whether I should paint or stain?
Also is there any new types of applications for wooden decks?
