I have seen some conflicting information between the comments and instructions provided and wondering if you can please confirm the following?
1. Does my old deck need to be sanded before using any of the products? I have tried to use a belt sander put it is having a very hard time taking the paint off although in other areas the paint is literally pealing off. Please can you let me know if I need to peel/sand as much as possible, or can I leave as is? Attached are pictures of the current deck which has a ton of peeling paint and is more worn in other areas.
2. If I do need to sand, should I also do the same for all of the railings? Do you recommend a belt sander or an orbit/palm sander?
3. If we have no rain for 48 hours and I start on Day 1 with Perma-Fill (with perma-bond first), I then need how much time approximately before then using the Perma-Bond to coat the entire deck?
4. Once I apply the Perma-Bond, how long do I need to wait before applying the first coat of Deck Revive? I am hoping to finish all of this in 1 or 2 days, but again I need to be able to plan things around the fact we get a lot of afternoon Thunderstorms.
Thank you for your help!!
We will reply to your comment shortly· 06/24/20201. You will need to remove any loose/peeling paint first. You can cover the paint that is not peeling and is intact to the wood.
2. See above. Any sander will work.
3. As soon as the fill is dry.
4. Permabond and Deck Revive need to go on the same day. The fill can go on any day prior or the same day, it just has to be dry before applying the bond.
