Over a course of time and with use, wood furniture has a tendency to show signs of wear. Wood decks, fences, and siding are especially vulnerable to deterioration problems such as the development of cracks and checks, raised grains, and growth of mildew as they are always exposed to extreme weather and harsh sunlight.

If you're a born Do-it-yourselfer, you can fix these issues with high-quality exterior stains and some knowledge on how to stain! You can turn to this guide on how to stain exterior wood surfaces in order to get satisfactory finishing results.

First off, you need to match your wood stain color to that of the wood surface. Even if you cannot find the exact shade, you must try to keep it close. You can always use a slightly darker stain to replace the original tone but if you wish to use a lighter tone, you would need to strip off the existing shade with a stain remover first. After you have picked out a stain color, have the surface pressure washed and scrubbed. Follow this with sanding and sweeping off of debris. Now that you’ve prepared the surface, you can begin the staining process. Use a high-quality finish like General Finishes Dye Stain to coat the surface evenly and let it dry for a day or two.

Refinishing your exterior wood surfaces is important to uphold the beauty of your outdoor living spaces and also keep your decks, fences, and siding protected.
