Soy gel to strip paint off deck?

pensivefrogMay 10, 2010

Hi folks - My new house has a painted wood deck that needs help. The paint is peeling off, and several rotted boards have been replaced, but are just sitting there unprotected. I'd love to save some money and strip/stain/seal the deck myself, but I'm not sure what the best option is. Powerwashing seems like a mess. I'm intrigued by Soy Gel - it gets good reviews on Amazon. But I'm not sure how a painted-on wood stripper is supposed to get between the boards to really get all the old paint off. Has anyone used this product on a deck?

Thanks!
