Hello. We just bought a home built in '86. Has front and back decks. Looks like has been stained with oil based stain to match outside (have can of stain in garage)
Wood appears to be very weathered. Boards are solid underfoot, no feel of weak joists. We would like to salvage for at least a couple of years before we save for likely composite/pvc or similar.
What are people's thoughts on Deck Restore versus Deck over (Rust O, Behr)?
With the look of this I was thinking I would need to strip, power wash, and sand before applying. Some are telling me sanding won't be needed. But I fear that after washing the splinters and grain will be worse.
Would these size cracks need a crack filler as well?
