The BM Arbocoat does not remove well with a stain stripper so sanding is most likel needed. After the sanding, continue the prep with the Restore A Deck Kit. This should do it for the prep.[/quote]
Thank you for the response.
I have heard sanding is almost required with the BM stuff. So process should go sand, cleaner, brightener, AC stain....correct?
That is correct!
Thanks for the quick responses...one last question though.
I have read belt sanding along the grain of the wood is best to sand the cedar deck...would you go to an 80 grit paper to really get this old BM stain out? Thanks again!
