Removing stain from deck


I know, I'm gonna have to think of one. I come on for a couple weeks when I am in a project and then I get busy and am gone again. Then when I go to log back in I can never remember what I used to start with. I will work on one

Removing stain from deck


Try Wollman's Acrylic Stain remover + pressure wash.
I tried almost everything: Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Behr, Flood etc. Woolmans works the best and it's easiest to use. You can get it in Menards. Works almost with everything: sealers, toners, semi and solid stains. Waterborne and oil based. Sometimes you have to strip twice (solid stains) but it won't take more than a day.

Removing stain from deck


Again, thanks for the replies. As I mentioned, this project was started on Labor Day weekend so I had limited availability to supplies. And after the section I did with the Flood Stain Stripper and a pressure washer, I figured it would just be safer if I sanded it. Spent a day on the deck with a floor sander and 36 grit paper. Spent a little more time with an orbital hand sander and some 60 grit paper. I'm not happy with it (nor are my knees), but Mom thinks it looks great. I'm concerned about what's left of the old stain in the wood rising to the surface when new stain is applied. The old stain was Cabot's oil based, so I guess the new must be oil based too, right? Any thoughts on what color to stain it? I was thinking a darker stain to try to blend in the dark spots on the deck. I'm afraid to find out what this will look like after putting any stain on it, but it needs to be done. Is there anything I can do before staining to improve the situation? And please don't say more sanding!

Mark
EDIT: What about using Benite, or something like it? I'm assuming a conditioner is a necessary step, no?

I think the honey gold colors are very nice. They are not too dark and look nice on cedar. Nice job!
