Deck Paint/Stain remover- Does it work?

4 posts in this topic

Ok, I need some help with the stain on my deck.

I have Behr Deck, Fence and Siding Wood stain- 100% acrylic latex on my deck now. The old owners left the gallon at the house and last fall I put a coat on the deck floor. The stain didn't even make it through the winter and looks much worse now than it did then.

It is called a stain, but the stuff looks like paint. It is peeling and chipping like paint does, that is for sure!

Anyways, I was looking into removing all of the old stain off of the deck and starting over. Does anyone have a specific stain remover they use for this application? How well does it work? Etc?

Then, what brand of stain would you recommend after I get it cleaned off?

Thanks a lot!

Rent a power washer. I have the same stain on my deck and it lasted almost 4 yrs, not too bad.

Just redid it this spring. Power washer took most of it right off.

Thats the problem with stain sealers or any sealer.

Oils wont peel their absorbed.

As far as getting it off? I'd start with a good pressure washer,remove all it will,then scrape & sand.lots of work! You could try a stripper but different brands give different results and you'll probably be sanding anyway.

Use a oil not sealer just oil like CWF as example,there are lots of oils that will give different looks.

I had a sort of similar thread here:

FM cedar deck thread

Not about cleaning, but lots of good info. I want/need to stay away from stains, as your task is what I do not want to have to do. Good luck.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
