Our old wood deck was in dire need of some restoration and repair. We used a pressure washer / power washer to clean it off along with a degreaser and oxalic acid. After that we stained the deck railings with a HVLP sprayer and then used a lambswool pad to put the finish on the deck boards. Two coats of deck stain was just what this deck needed and now it looks better than ever!
