      Hey bruthas and sistas. I needed to paint the deck and shutters in my moms house. The paint had been peeling, boards were missing, etc. So I replaced the boards and talked to a guy working in the paint department at Lowes. I had scrubbed the decking and used a small orbital sander to ruff up the paint that wasnt peeling so the new paint could stick. The paint tech at Lowes said the best paint would be the Lowes brand and it should work good. I painted everything. Well after about a week I saw some paint peeling at a place no one even walks on. A month later more was peeling on the other side of the deck. Its a few spots and they are small but I assume this will get worse and I should just strip the paint off. With a paint stripping product at Lowes or rent a larger sander. get it down to the wood again? I could use a little guidance. What do you think?

      ric i would assume the new stuff is peeling because of the prep work. what i mean by that is the old stuff wasnt removed so the new stuff would stick. i agree with you remove the old stuff and then sand to bare wood and then either stain the wood or paint it. i would assume you would have to use a primer. dont know where you live but i would go to a paint store. nothing against lowes or HD but i question the people who work in the paint dept do they relly know.. i dont know if you have a sherwin williams in your town but thats where i go because all they do is paint. lucky for me a good friend from high school is a sales man there and has worked there for 15 plus years so call him and ask him. i built a new house 2 years ago and got all of my inside and outside paint from him along with stain for my board fence which is out front.. havent had any issues.. at the end of the day prep is everything...good luck

      Totally agree. Strip, power wash sand everything...
      Williams is my go to for exterior paint. Lowes is great for interior. Prep is everything.

      I did my mom's deck a year or 2 ago, stripped it, pressure washed it like the other guys said. Let it dry a week and used this product. Did not sand it at all.

      i would bet that based on your location there would be "correct" way of doing it based on several factors. rain, heat, humidity, so forth. a good cleaning agent is TSP. ive used it several times when prepping for paint. dupont has several independent paint stores but i personally have never used them.

      lowes and home depot arent bad places for advise sometimes about somethings but long gone are the days of retired "experts" working there. they have become revolving doors of cheap labor like most retail.

      3000 psi pressure washer....Honda 13 hp is good!
      Depending on the wood...pine or oak etc...be careful spending to much time in one spot...pressure washer can damage wood pretty easily!
      I only use SW paint or stain....depending on how old the wood is....there is also a primer sealer used for decks...it prevents splinters and cracking etc....some are around 60 + a gallon...it also has I assume sand in the paint...to give ya a lil bit of traction!
      Depending on the size of the deck u can rent a commercial sander for 50$ a half day....witch makes the job much much faster...
      Everything I say is Roll Play!

      ARX, you are not kidding. a 13 hp washer will gouge wood if you get it within 12-18 inches depending on the tip and the condition of wood. I have a 6.5 hp and it gouged mine with a 45 degree tip at 12 inches.

      If you use it right (and do not get too tired from using it) it will strip that old pain like a beast.


      I like the commercial sander idea as well as long as you have a perfectly flat deck. I tried it on my old deck. It left all the low spots on the 2x6s untouched and sanded the ridges and high spots flat which was not a bad thing.

      Why paint when you can go with a solid color stain for the deck? To remove old paint on a deck careful sandblasting works.
