  • 1. State you live in: Houston, TX
  • 2. Full Shade, Partial Shade, or Full Sun: Partial shade, but it gets a LOT of sun.  80% sun, 20% shade during the day
  • 3. Type of Wood: pressure treated SYP
  • 4. Mold or Mildew Issues: Some light mold, not terrible
  • 5. Main Issues with Previous Stains: SuperDeck was ridiculously slick when wet after initial application.  Color was okay, wear wasn't great, but I was expecting to re-coat with something eventually anyway.

 

Built a big new deck in early 2020, we call it our Quaran-deck.  All 5/4" pressure treated SYP deck boards.  Allowed to weather for 4-6 months and had professional painters stain, they recommended SuperDeck and I just rolled with it without researching.  For MONTHS it was ridiculously dangerously slick when wet.  2 years later and it's needing a re-coat, need something better both right after the initial application as well as lasting longer than 2 years.

 

Doing some reading here on your site, seems like Restore-A-Deck Cleaner and Brightener followed by TWP 100 could be a good solution?  Would like to stick with semi-transparent.  Do I need to do anything else to prep the surface and be rid of the SuperDeck?  Thanks in advance.

You have to fully remove the Super Deck first. Post some pics so we can see the best way to do this.
