Question Staining large deck and rails

Hello, I am about to begin staining my back deck, screen porch and vast amount of steps. Is it possible to use a sprayer instead of brusing by hand? If so what kind of sprayer? Thanks, Cassie

Welcome to the forums Cassie!

A lot depends on the stain you use. Some of the thinner stains can be applied with a pump up garden sprayer but an airless is the preferred sprayer. You should aways be mindfull of where overspray will go.

Brush/roller is the best application method. It is best to back roll or back brush sprayed on stain to work it into the substrate.
