Put it on CL someone will but it. I would also recommend the SW deck stain. I have used this on my deck for years. I stain mine a light gray and it's good for about 4 years before I have to recoat. All I do is wash it good and roll it on, couldn't be easier.

You must have gotten a great deal on Trex to be pulling it up and getting rid of it. You sure you want to do this? It doesn't look to be in such bad shape? Synthetic decking is not without its downsides you know.

Painting deck railing...which Big box store paint?


I am going with the SW Woodscapes. They will have 30% off on the 1st.

Unfortunately, it is taking longer than expected to get the deck clean. Grrrr We have about a 1/3 of the pool deck railing stripped. Damn I hate doing these things. That is the major reason I am going with the Trex. Please God dont let there be any issues with the Trex. Yes, we got a good deal. Unfortunately, it will not come with a warranty but we are willing to take the chance.

I do have a question...the stripper lifted the wood fibers. Do I have to sand after or is there another step that will help smooth the wood back down?

That stuff is rough. I have a patch of skin gone on my wrist and a dot on my nose. LOL It ate my skin right off.

Now just to confirm...the second deck (the one that was done last summer with deck restore) just needs a good cleaning and we can stain right over the restore stain?

You should sand the raised/checked grain. It will not compress back down.

As mentioned before, I do not know the Restore product well enough to suggest what it might be leaving behind. I would try Woodscapes on a small, clean and prepped section to see if you need to do anything more for adhesion.

Okay, we will test it.

Do I need to do a cleaner after the stripper?

Still do not know what stripper you used. What does the label say? Does it suggest neutralizing whatever reaction the stripper created?

"When in trouble or in doubt,
Run in circles scream and shout,
Then read the _______ label or manual!"

Here are a couple in progress pictures. It did a good job lifting the old stain.

Nice set up, and it seems like the others are answering your questions, what I want to know is what is up with the behind you neighbor's siding? I know that some lenses can bend objects. Is that what's going on, or am I having flashbacks?
