Question: Should you prime a deck before staining it?
Top Answer (54% of 11 votes): No, never.

Answer: In most cases
Explanation: Generally, you should prime any surface before applying paint, especially wood. Outdoor wood surfaces, such as the floor and railings of a porch, are constantly exposed to moisture, temperature, and constant use and foot traffic, so priming is even more important here than nearly anywhere else to ensure a beautifully finished project.
