    I know its not the correct time of year to stain decks, but I want to start staining decks in addition to lawn care. Anyone have any thoughts about deck stain? Anyone have any experience in pricing this type of job? I'm hoping around $350 to be the average cost per deck. Let me know what you think.

    If you haven't done deck work before you might encounter some problems. What was the deck previously stained/painted with? How do you remove the previous coating and prepare the deck for the new coating?

    There are several types of decking--treated wood, cedar, redwood, and others--and many types of coatings--stains, water repellants, preservatives--each that require different techniques.

    My suggestion is to contact a company such as which offers a certification program.

    A good place to start. Decks can be very tricky.
