A debacle of a deck had become desolate in its deterioration and decay.
Diligent and determined deletion of damage and discoloration produced a denouement both delectable and dainty.
The deficient deck is now delightful and the Dame of the domicile was demonstrably delighted!
If the deck has previous coatings on it we will often use our heavy duty floor sander (you can rent one at a rental yard). These units can remove old finishes much quicker that water blasting, which can damage the wood
After sanding and replacing boards found to be rotted; a finish can be applied
If the deck was previously finished with a solid color stain (as in this case) or paint then you will probably have to go solid stain or paint again because color will remain in the crack between boards.
If the deck was finished with a semi-transparent…then after sanding; use a biodegradable stripper in the spaces between boards and then gently water blast so those spaces between boards are brought back to bare wood….then you can apply an oil based semi-transparent stain.
Who makes the best stain?
