- Can you seal treated lumber with a stain?


Dear Shell,

A fellow co-worker is building a backyard play centre with treated wood and wanted to know whether he could properly seal the treated wood with a solid stain.

Thanks, Mario

Dear Mario,

When you use treated wood for decks, fences or play centers, allow them be exposed to the elements for one month and then seal them with semi transparent or solid colour oil stain i.e. Weather One by Cloverdale Paint. Before you apply the stain, wash the entire project with Stain Prep available under the Bio Wash label.

It's Just That Easy
