Whats the best way to strip a deck? Used Behr deckover last year and its already looking like garbage and peeling in places huge.

I assume i can sand it with a belt sander, but this decks older and in a few places had the odd screw head popping up i cant sink any lower because its stripped out.

Just giver anyways? Or is there a good belt oit there thay wont shred?

Drill out the heads maybe? Dont use a belt sander as it isnt soft and small enough to get into the areas where a pole mounted would get. A palm sander would be better.

Did the first part yesterday, ran out of stain. FYI a 3.78L can is only good for about 200 sq ft, my deck is 400 sq ft.

But at least I have this comparison photo with the rain we just got. This is 10 yr old previously unstained wood and you can clearly see the stained part doing its job vs the unstained part:

Not bad, but I hope it holds up for more than 1-2 seasons.

Oh well, that's what insurance is for.

Well I tried out the dye on some scrap pieces of PT wood.

I mixed the dye to a bucket of water about the size of a large paint can, and used a small foam roller to apply it. It took 4 coats to get the color that closely matched the box, so if I were to use this method, I'd get a dye twice as dark as needed.

The finished pieces look great, and unlike stain which doesn't penetrate at all, the dye penetrated to a depth of about 1 mm. The penetration was the same regardless of the amount of coats.

One finished piece will remain in the shed, and the other on my deck to see how much the sun fades it.



Here it is 1 week later and my South facing test piece has now faded by about 50%
