It's been a few years and I need to redo the deck. My plan is to power
wash then apply....um.....something. Currently, I'm considering a
product called "Restore" from Lowes. Basically it's thick paint which
will seal in cracks, crevices, holes, etc. and last a long time. The
downside is the amount of gallons I will need to do my entire deck which
equals more money. Bottom line, my objective is to do as little upkeep
as possible. I have far too many other upkeep projects around the house
to do every year. I want something to that will last.
Anyone experience this product or suggest something else?
Is this a typical pressure treated deck? If so, something like
restore is probably best.
Alternatives is to replace the decking material with a low maintenance
material. If you want wood, Ipe is a good one Many types of plastic
decking available too. Cost a bit more up front, but once done, it
will last a long time.
Last year I replaced my ugly PT decking with Tiger Wood from Advantage
Lumber. It should outlast me with a little oil once in a while.
