Question Staining my deck

This morning I put a coat of stain on my deck. I would like to put on one more coat. How soon is too soon? Today and for the next 2 days it will be in the 70's. Is recoating in 24 hours too soon? Should I wait for another stretch of nice days?

Thanks.

Tomorrow should be fine - I've put on two coats in the same day before but it was hot and dry

What does the label say? some stains [mostly waterborne] require the second coat to be applied within a certain time frame [usually a few hrs] or not at all until it is either removed or weathered.

Hmm.... Never thought about that - 'tomorrow' could have been too long

Thanks, Mark

The next day is fine for many deck stains but not all of them - that's why it pays to read the label
