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.
We scrubbed it. I’m not affiliated with Sherwin Williams. This stuff is just fantastic for removing old sealer and stain.
We stripped it.
We neutralized the stripper. Don’t I look “neutralized”?
We stained it.
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.
