painting over new solid deck stain


I would strip it down to bare wood and start over.

Use a lightly tinted oil based stain and apply one thin coat with a brush while working in the shade. Repeat every 2-3 years.

Solid colors and paints just don't hold up well on decks and when they fail they look terrible.

I like this one better:

Solid colors on a deck just don't age gracefully IMHO. Then the homeowner covers it with more stain and pretty soon you have a thick coating that fails even more frequently and looks like crap.

It's personal preference, but I prefer thin/lightly tinted wood color stains.
