I have a new 14 x 28 deck (elevated approx. 1 foot off the ground) and I have two questions:

-What brand(s) of stain are top choices? Easy application would be a bonus.

-What is the ideal height for a railing that will go all around the perimeter of the deck?

Thanks!

Thanks for your question,
The maximum height of residential guardrail ? handrail Is 36" measured from finished floor of the deck and commercial is 42"
Always check your local codes official office for their approval.
I like minn wax or Behr, be sure your prep work is ready.
