The Deck: You stained it last year and it looks terrible this year. FACT
Why doesn’t the deck stain not hold up?
- Rain, Sun, Snow, Ice, more sun, moving patio furniture, dogs,
- More bad weather, kids, grownups, spilled food, ect. ect. ect
The easiest cure is a light wash, light sand and a coat of stain.
It some cases wood can not be cleaned, sanded and brought back to life and needs replacement
There is nothing better than after an afternoon working on your deck you can step back and marvel at the results.
The following steps will guide you thru this project:
- Light wash the deck with a deck cleaner or deck restorer found at local hardware or paint store.
- Lightly sand the decking with an orbital sander with 150 grit sandpaper
- Apply a coat of a GOOD brand of deck stain, We found if we buy the best it will last longer in most cases.
- The deck below was done like this and one coat of a water based Benjamin Moore stain was applied.
