No rain in the forecast for the next few days so we decided it was time to stain the deck.
Of course, we had to clean the deck since it went unprotected for several months after being installed.
Getting on your hands and knees to scrub it for saps so I opted for the Tim Taylor approach….yep, you guessed it….power washer. I didn’t get the Binford 2000 but I did get a Ryobi 1700 PSI Electric Power Washer. I think that I got to close to the wood in some spots as it was taking the wood off. Well, at least the mold is gone.
Thompon’s Water Sealer states that you can use it within “a few hours” of washing the deck. We waited twenty four hours plus.
We think that it came out really nice. It only us about three and a half hours to do it. We are contemplating doing a second coat.
I know, this picture has nothing to do with the deck. Can you tell me what is different (hint, you can look at previous posts if you need to)?
