I would recommend using a pressure washer to strip the old paint off, but being careful enough to not damage the wood. Next, get yourself a good paint roller and a mechanics seat with casters. This will let you sit while you paint and save your lower back. I just refinished my north facing front deck and couldnt be happier with the results. I use a pressure washer with vinegar to clean up the deck before parties.

We built a large deck last fall and used an oil stain. Loved the look, was beautiful. Now eight months later we have small black mold spots appearing all over it. It seems mold likes and feeds on the oil! I contacted Cabot and they tell be to buy another one of their products and apply another coat!! Not happening, the first coat cost several hundred dollars! Now I don't know what to re-seal it with after I get rid of the mold! This deck gets full sun! Help needed!

We just had the old, original 90amp. furnace replaced with a 15amp. furnace and a heat pump.

The installer suggested we not use the expensive (DENSE) furnace filters that need to be changed only every six months. He said the "cheaper" (LESS DENSE) filters actually work better; they just need to be changed more often. Has to do with circulation.
