I’ve owned this home for almost 5 years. The previous owners had used a dark solid stain.
Last year, I had the deck pressure washed and had a SW deck solid stain sprayed on with back brush. It is already peeling and chipping.
I would like to add a new solid stain. Please direct me to the best preparation and solid stain and seal. I am assuming that because there have been multiple layers of solid stain, my only choice going forward is solid stain. Also, is there a seal that is recommended. Because I am choosing a light color, I would like to seal so that leaves and dirt easily wash off the stain.
Your recommendations and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
It is not possible to add a sealer over a deck stain, that would peel. Since your solid stain is already peeling, it would be best to prep as follows.
-Use the Restore A Deck stripper with both additives and pressure washing to remove as much as possible of the current stain: https://www.deckstainhelp.com/restore-a-deck-stain-stripper-booster-thickening-gel-review/
-Apply the Restore A Deck Brightener after: https://www.deckstainhelp.com/restore-a-deck-injectable-deck-stain-stripper-review/
-Let dry and spot sand any areas of the solid stain that are currently still peeling.
-Apply the Restore A Deck Stolid stain to the prepped deck that has only bare wood or intact/non-peeling old solid stain. Two coats:
