How long do you have to wait to stain pressure treated wood?

Many people say you should wait at least six months before staining pressure treated wood. So being a real rebel, I stained that pressure treated wood after only two weeks of the deck being completed. All that being said, if you do have time to wait, then by all means wait.

Moreover, how long do you need to wait to seal a pressure treated deck?

Wait to stain a new wood deck if water beads up on it. The wood on a new deck needs to dry thoroughly before sealing or staining. If the wood came still wet with preservative, allow it to dry about 30 days before applying stain or sealer.
