have an Indiana deck of pine (think treated) approx 20 yrs old. Looks like was painted with exterior house paint. How should one go about preparing this deck for stain- to remove paint,etc?? Am I correct to then use the 1500 series stain?
Cleaners and or stain strippers will not remove a paint off a deck. You will have to power sand it all off. Once fully removed, it is helpful to use the Gemini Restore Kit for final prep. Use the 1500 Series for IN.
