Re-Staining Deck

boystownApril 28, 2009

Our deck needs restaining this year. Do I have to strip the old stain off before I restain??? In most areas of the deck, it just looks faded and dull but there are some areas that have the appearance of stain cracking. Thanks in advance for your help

Latex or Oil??
How old is the deck??
Age of existing stain??
