Deck cleaning

kerriehdJune 22, 2010

Tried to use a BEHRs stain and finish remover, but I didn't have a pressure cleaner and ended up with a real mess of darkened wood. It is a limited area though, which I can & will sand to fix (Mostly the top of the railings) However - Do I try again with the Behr's product & pressure hose or should I throw it away and use Restore A Deck? I have since read a lot of negative reports on Behr's finishes, and was wondering if even the stripper was rubbish too? (I know now I screwed up, but the deck I'm used to working on is in Australia where pressure hoses r not used due to water restrictions). The mess I have I doubt can be fixed with reapplication, as where the finish did come off, I've got dark run marks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

you did not mention what type of wood you are refinishing but would recommend using a stripper and brightener from

contact them for which stripper they recommend
