    Default Worst thing to STAIN?

    Okay Wood experts.....

    In you opinion, what do you consider the most diificult task in staining? Meaning when you walk in a back yard and you see all sorts of lattice's, do you cringe? How about them spindles? OR the infamous childrens playset?

    What about that boot ramp the sits over water? And you are not permitted to get one drop of cleaner or stain in the water because some "blue toed" frog that lived there for 100,000 years may be adversely affected by it. I mean come on, this "frog" survived an ice age, countless floods, a drought or two, predators....sorry for the rant...but you get my drift..LOL

    Decks with composite floors and stair treads, but cedar railings and stair risers. Its really tough to cover and mask off the composite areas, and not get stain seepage onto the composite. Seems that no matter how careful you are, there'll be an area (usually a highly visible area), that stain seeps through or a drop of stain hits the composite during cleanup. I will be passing on those type of decks this year, as every single one we've done in the past 6 years has had an issue. The problem is that they look like real easy money, but ALWAYS end up being a PITA.

    A close second to the above type of deck is the playset. YUCK!!

    They're too time consuming. Way too much "by hand" detail type work.

    I don't even bother with these any more( Composite Floor/wood rails )unless they are already a client. Many high end decks (wood floors) are using White composite type materials(many brands) for trim work, risers and these are terrible( some stain easily). Do a test first before doing these. I had a three story house with Ipe just stained on each level and a storm came half hour later. This house was all composite material and stain dripped all over the sides.
