Help using SW Deckscapes

amav31July 7, 2011

On my deck I have very old weathered semi transparent brown color stained wood for flooring and 2 yr weathered pressure treated wood(clear oil stain) for steps and banister.

I want to stain them even color red using Deckscapes. I am getting conflicting advice as to weather I should use SW Deck Wash or SW Stain and Sealer remover BEFORE applying the latex based Solid color Deckscape stain. My question

1. Can I just clean the deck thoroughly and apply stain or Do I need to remove the previous stains(could be oil or water)

I was told no primer is needed. Has any one used this product.Please advice.

Thanks in advance for the input.

One more thing I forgot to mention. I was also told by SW paint store guy that I need to clean with SW Revive after I clean with SW Stain and Sealant remover and then apply the solid stain. I am trying to get away with one step cleaning process and also save money. Is there any other product out there to just clean the deck and then use SW stain.Thanks
