Tired deck, needs attention.
After a close examination, we determined the only way to salvage the deck was to replace the floorboards and handrails. They were ragged from years of sun and rain. They were rotting in some areas and had algae growing in other areas. Power washing would only remove the algae and dirt but would not improve the condition of the wood.
We replaced all the floorboards, steps and handrails then power washed the remaining sides and railings. We applied 3 coats of semi-transparent stain in a beautiful color called Canyon Sunset. The deck furniture was laid back out and looks fabulous!
