I’m re staining a a deck from 2018 and wondering if I had this process right because from these post, #1, #2, they are suggesting prepping is most important but don’t mention what to do in case of removing old stain. I don’t know if I’m misunderstanding, in that I start with deck wash/cleaner to remove stain then continue the staining process? I’m also using the same oil based stain from Sherwin Williams
Does this process look right for re staining my deck:
Mist/Shower deck board floors and spread deck stripper with roller attached to extension pole
Let stripper rest for ~10-30 min (depending on manufacturers instructions) then scrub (with scrub brush) to remove dirt, mildew or stain
Wash with hose
*3) Can I use a pressure washer to remove the deck stripper after scrubbing? Or Can I just use pressure washer at the beginning without deck stripper to remove stain? I’ve seen post suggesting that as well.
4)Let it dry for a day, and then begin staining process.
Let me know if I have it right or missed anything.
I’ve linked some photos just for reference since my stain has been peeling and in other spots have looked well.
