protecting deck railing
 
The handrail on the deck takes a beating from the sun and elements. I decided to replace them. I went ahead and administered a coat of primer/sealer before painting. What else can I do to protect the lumber from this Texas heat?

Decide on the type of stain you want for your deck. Some stains do have a color or your can use a clear one. Make sure the stain is a penetrating oil stain that is water repellant. This will give the deck a long lasting protection.

He can't stain it if he's already painted on primer.
