We're resurfacing and re-tiling our pool, spa and deck. It's the biggest
home improvement project I've ever (had) done. BUT...I'm not doing the
I thought about doing the pool and decided to hire a company that only
renovates pools because they have a great reputation and they came in

My project is the deck. I've already repaired the cracks using Quikrete

I tried to get a repair kit from Sundek but apparently they don't give a
crap about repairs, only selling new decks. It looks like something

We are able to pressure wash the deck now and the majority of the deck
tolerates the pressure well. The only problem is where the deck has
failed due to cracks. The problem I have now is, what do I use to
resurface the deck, and crack repairs, that won't wash off when I
pressure wash it?
