Now that you’ve decided to go ahead with your staining project, you will need to take into consideration factors like the weather and time of day when selecting a day for the task.
Temperature and humidity can have major effects on how your stain dries. If it’s too wet or cold, the drying time for stains can easily double. In extreme cases, the product will just stay wet until the humidity decreases or the temperatures rises. Oppositely, if it’s too warm, the stain will dry very quickly and could lead to lap marks or uneven penetration.

The ideal temperature range for application is between 50 and 80 degrees. And, it is important to choose a day when no rain is expected for 24 hours.
