How to Repair a Peeling Deck

Here’s a question from our 4/27/2019 Today‚Äôs Homeowner Radio Show.

Bill from Oregon asks, “My deck is peeling very badly. I have scraped as much as I can. I bought paint remover but haven’t used it yet. Based on your experience can I put it on and brush it and then power spray the remover off.”

We say use a deck stripper. Make sure safety gear is used like goggles and gloves. Finish with a pressure washer.
