Deck Painting

Edward asked 10 years ago

I have a 20 year deck that has for years been sealed with Thomson’s waxy deck sealer. Want to paint with solid color paint. Any ideas? Thank you

You will need to completely sand down all surfaces to good clean wood. This is the only sure way to remove old coatings. After the sanding any good deck paint can be used. Personally I would use a solid colored deck stain instead of a paint, easier to maintain.
