Can I Stain Pressure Treated Lumber?

Answer

You can stain lumber that is pressure treated. The only thing you have to do is wait for the lumber to be completely dry. When it is, then you can go ahead and apply the stain to it. You can also opt to purchase pressure treated wood that is KDAT, or Kiln Dried After Treatment so it is dry when you get it and you can apply the stain immediately.
