Wood Care Tips For Pros From Pros

"When staining a fence always go up and down one plank at a time. Never go side to side that's when a build up of uneven stain will appear."

— Frank Breaux, Breaux's Construction

"When staining softer types of wood, such as pine or fir, seal the wood first with a pre-stain to ensure color uniformity. This also eliminates blotches."

— Casey Hedstrom, Hedstrom Decorating

"Stain your hand railing and spindles before staining floor decking, this way you're not walking across your newly stained deck."

— Paul Tolliver, Signature Decks by Paul

"A tip to save on thinners or brush cleaners: If you know you are going to reuse the brush or roller, place them into a plastic baggie to keep them from drying out."

— Mark Olson, Marks Painting
