This Madison, NJ Deck needed a thorough refinishing. It was completely aesthetic: the deck is structurally in great shape: no signs of rot, no loose railings or failing stairs. The problem was that it had been painted years ago. Generally, decks should not be painted. A solid (or semi-solid) stain is usually a much better option. Exterior paint coats a surface, while stain penetrates the deck surface. Solid stain, unlike paint, does not peel over time – it fades after several years (we warranty our deck refinishing projects for 5 years – the solid stain we use won’t fade during that period). Solid stain can be purchased in almost every single color offered by the manufacturer. For this deck we used Sherwin Williams brand SuperDeck. It’s a high quality solid stain with great coverage. The homeowners chose a color called “Sand Castle” and it came out great. Hold on… before we could apply the stain, we had to prep the deck by power-washing and power-sanding. About 90% of the paint was removed during this process, exposing bare wood that’s perfect for the penetrative stain.

Deck Refinishing Prep-Work

In order to begin refinishing this Madison deck we had to first give it an extremely thorough power-wash. In any exterior painting, staining, sealing, or other type of coating home improvement it is absolutely critical to power-wash. We used a 3,000 PSI pressure-washer with a chemical-injector application. Since this home was built after 1978 we did not have to follow any EPA rules regarding lead-based paint. We tested just in case, and no lead paint was present. First we soaked the deck in a bleach-water solution to kill mold and mildew. After 15-20 minutes of allowing the bleach to do its job we used a high-pressure nozzle and blasted every square inch of this deck. The result is a mold- and mildew-free surface with failed paint either removed or exposed and ready to be stripped. After allowing it to dry overnight, we began power-sanding. Using circular sanders we stripped the deck of all its failed paint. 90% of the existing deck paint was removed. See below for a photo of the power-sanded, paint-stripped deck before we started staining:
