My wife and I used a deck stripper from home hardware 2 years ago and instead of re painting or staining we put Thompson water seal on it. Hands down the best thing I have used. No sign of lifting or fading and itís been on there for two years now. And we are in a very harsh environment on the east coast.

Your best bet, if you have the energy and time, would be to strip the floor, first using a power washer, then after it dries use a sander of your choice.
Then get yourself some CWF (Clear Wood Finish) or semi transparent stain. These will give the wood protection but won't peel. After a couple years you power-wash the deck and restain. No more scraping or sanding.

Vertical surfaces, railings and stringers, that are already painted or finished with a solid stain will usually hold up for quite some time and make a nice custom look with the other finish of the floor.


I am with beachcomber on this one. I used CWF right when the deck was put on and not letting it dry out. Seems to hold up well. Not many good preservatives left at least here in the states since many have no oil anymore. Probably pressure wash,go over each board individually with a belt sander and put the CWF on till it won't take anymore.

Iíve heard good stuff about CWF...Did a little research for an exterior project I have going and CWF came up a lot...


Thought I was a good trapper until I started trapping coyotes......
Thought I was a good bowhunter until I targeted mature bucks....

Well,I got started on the deck.I borrowed an electric pressure washer(around 1500 psi,supposed to be).It didn't take long to wash off all the loose old stuff.
Then I found a gallon of the stuff I had from before.Its waterproof deck stain and sealer.Had enough to do all the top rail,baseboard,and about 1/3 of the deck.
I'll head to home depot tomorrow to get another couple gallons to finish the deck.
Hope it stays better since I prepped it a bit better than the last time.
We shall see.
