Solution 1: Clean & refinish

The basics of refinishing a deck are pretty straightforward: Strip, clean, stain, ?repeat! It's a tough chore that might take you several days to complete, one you'll have to do every few years to keep your deck looking great. But all that hard work has a huge payoff! When you're finished, your all-wood deck will look almost as good as it did the day it was built. Here are some things to think about before tackling the job yourself. A pressure washer does a great job of cleaning your deck and stripping old finishes. They're available as gas or electric models and vary widely in price—anywhere from $70 to $1,000 at home centers. You can also rent one for about $80 per day. You can get the job done without a pressure washer, but it's a real time and labor saver.
