Cleaning & Stripping Deck

Posted by red62 (My Page) on

I have a pressure treaded deck, five years old. When new I had some fly-by night outfit stain it, I think they used a latex product Behr from home depot, I know, I know wrong way to go. Well now I am trying to take it off, it is coming off but real slowwwww. My question, if I take off as much as possible now and use a solid stain and get more next time, will the solid stain like cabot or TWP come off easier then this damn latex Bahr. Also will a solid stain cover this junk. Thanks in advance

Drift on over to >> << They sell strippers and oxalic acid base brightners. They also sell a not bad TWP knock off.

You can not stack up cabot with TWP total different material. Behr is junk it should not even be made much less sold.On a refinish you have to get all the Behr off there is no covering it over.

TWP will Never require stripping just a good cleaning and another coat. J.
