Deck redo

Mr. Aitch and I needed to do a major overhaul of our deck.  I don’t remember how long it had been since we really, really, really cleaned it.  Yeah, Mr. Aitch would power wash it every couple of years but it was in pretty sad shape.

So we decided to get to work.

We cleaned it.

 

Deck003

We scrubbed it.  I’m not affiliated with Sherwin Williams.  This stuff is just fantastic for removing old sealer and stain.

We stripped it.

Deck-007

We neutralized the stripper.  Don’t I look “neutralized”?

Deck-008

We stained it.

Post-cap

We replaced the old wooden algae-covered post caps (as seen above) with these sleek copper ones.

The entire process took about eight days as we had to work around the heat and humidity but it was worth it.

We are enjoying it.
