Viewing Project in Decks & Patios > Decks
I love Ron's videos, but I can't seem to find one addressing my specific issue. I bought my house a couple of years ago and the patio had been done in this odd stain I couldn't quite figure out. Last summer we hired someone to replace a few of the boards and we realized that whomever had originally done the patio had put the stain on like paint, instead of wiping it into the wood, so it looks kind of blotchy and poor. I would like to redo this, but am unsure what the best choice would be. Do I need to sand the entire deck and redo it completely or is there something I can spray to help remove some of the color? Is painting it with an actual outdoor paint a recommended option? This would be my first go at a project like this.
Thank you - Pamela
If a power sprayer does not work then sanding may be your last option. If a belt sander will not work then you'll have to use a more conventional and usually tedious way of sanding. Here is a site that may be able to help you with the mold: http://www.nadra.org/consumers...

Nice post and another great technique from you bro. thanks
Dear Friend,I became an instant admirer of your calm outlook. I have an old deck (500sq ft. +/-) that was repainted quite a few times. I am now looking at a disaster of paint chips in many colors along with fungus growth. I have tried sanding (though the sander was meant for straight wood where ours has bowed. FAILURE. There are 3 to 4 layers of paint that is peeling. Water pressure (3500 psi, heat gun, did not work.) I need to get it in shape 'cause I am trying to sell the house. Can you or your followers help me with a low cost solution. I have been out of work for 3 years, ergo, cost efficiency. I watched you on your show put on a heavy past stain. Please expound on my options.Thank you in advance for your experience and wisdom.
