old painted? deck - what to do now?
We've been to many home depots and lowes and each time we go we get a new answer, so I figure I'll ask here.
We bought a house last year and we think (and also asked home depot/lowes people as well) that it was badly painted but it was starting to scrape off at certain parts so we want to do something about it.
Anyway, should we-
Apply a solid color stain?
Apply a deck paint?
And before we do it, should we-
Scrub it with a stiff bristled brush
Use some kind of deck cleaner
Do we need to use a primer?
Recommendations for products would be great as well.
