Answer for How to sand ridged decking?

Some ideas;
1- Flip over the floor boards. Depends on the construction of your deck but could expose some nice wood for staining.
2- Use a wood floor sander, drum sander. Lots of work but can be rented.
3- Use a deck stripper and pressure washer as mentioned.

Answer for How to sand ridged decking?

First off… you cannot "stain" a previously painted surface… without first removing completely, all the paint with either a Stripper or Refinisher Product… just sanding alone will not allow stain to completely penetrate the surface…

If you just want to repaint a previously painted surface which has a coarse surface structure… try coarse steel wool… or use a pressure washing system…
