Deck staining project, I have this deck that hasn’t been cleaned or stain in six years. Some of the railing and boards may need to be replaces because of cracks and splinter (see attached pictures). I need to go ahead and stain the deck because I am trying to sell the house. I am going to attempt to find the Kiln-Dried wood to use on the deck so I don’t have to wait a year to stain it (if I replace). Couple questions I have: Should I replace the board or could I use a sander or something that would smooth it out without replacing? Would using the Kiln-Dried wood mean that I can go ahead and stain? Should I sand this new wood prior to staining? Should I stain the bottom prior to installing? I am using the Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener. Do I still need to use a stream cleaner?
