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.
