    Default Painted Deck

    I have a large deck in the back of my house. I believe it has been painted. If I wish to restore it what are my options. I assume I could sand it all down which would take a very long time. Any suggestions?

    Default Re: Painted Deck

    My approach would be to take a pressure washer and starting with a low pressure nozzle try to remove as much paint as possible only going up 1/2 way to the most powerfull nozzle so as not to damage the wood. I would follow this with a good application of paint stripped made for wood, removing with the pressure washer( as opposed to scraping). Finally the fun part... Some quality time with your favorite random orbit sander. Just my $.02
