Deck with bad finish


Posted by Patricia on March 14th, 1998 07:44 AM

I have a pressure treated deck. After waiting a few years to apply
finish, I prepped and then applied an oil base wood stain on the sides and
rails. A neighbor was applying an opaque gray stain (oil?) and splattered
their product all over my deck floor before I stained it. They tried to remove
the grey a number of ways but nothing worked. We compromised by my agreeing to
go with a solid stain on my floor (the first coat of which was purchased and applied by
my neighbor). Within a year, it was peeling like crazy. It was a water based stain.
I had the deck pressure washed last summer and reapplied another brand of water
based stain. Just months later and ITS PEELING AGAIN! I know that I cannot apply oil over
water base BUT WHAT CAN I DO?? PLEASE, CAN ANYONE HELP?!?
