    I'm working on removing the stain/paint off my deck and am using Behr deck stripper. I applied the stripper, used a brush, and then a power washer. A lot of the stain (possibly oil based paint like substance) is still on the deck. I've tried three times using stripper and power washer with no luck. Any advice on how
    To remove the rest of the finish?

    Some pictures might help. Try getting close enough to get some detail. The Behr stuff may not be the right choice for your particular situation. have you tried anything else?

    I found both the Cabots and Behr deck strippers to be effective only on clear or semi-transparent deck stains. Other finishes usually require a regular paint stripper.
