They got those new ones at Hardware store where you just take it at the counter.

Cost was $40.00 but with purchase of an electric powerwasher it was free.

I seen bunch of people taking the certification test.

You get a certificate and all the call back support you need from the guy behind the counter.

Free coffee and popcorn also if you make it before 8AM on Sunday morning

PWNA offers one. I think they now have it online. If your new the info is invaluable. Even if you have some experience its still very informative. Everett Abrams from Deck Restoration Plus teaches it. He really knows his stuff.

"One Tyme" is the best deck stain I have found for my pressured wood deck. My deck is over 20 years old so that I have tried a lot of products including Behr and Olympic. Each time I stripped the old finish from the deck and cleaned it thoroughly. Of all the products I used, even though it was top rated by a "leading consumer magazine" Behr was the worst, lasting not even 6 months. Old Tyme is a polymer resin, (I got mine from Ace Hardware). It requires UV to cure and is best applied in the summer months. I did half of my deck in mid September and it took almost a week to cure (northern Ohio). I waited until June to finish the job when it set in about one to two days depending on how much shade the part of the deck had. It is rather expensive but worth it based on its appearance after two years so far. For older decks, it does require a lot of work to strip the deck of previous treatments so that the product can penetrate the wood. One side remark: after finishing the first half of the deck, I threw the roller and brush, without bothering to clean them, in a plastic bag, put it in a box, keeping it in the dark and was able to use them 7 months later.

The only sanding I've ever done on a deck was to smooth out handrails or fix 'fuzzed up' wood where someone used too much pressure when cleaning the deck. Most decking is face nailed/screwed and those nail heads would destroy sandpaper in short order.

To prep a deck, I mix up bleach and water [never stronger than 50%] and apply it to the deck with a pump up garden sprayer, let it set but not dry and rinse with a pressure washer. A garden hose will also work. Scrubbing the deck with an old broom may help to remove a lot of the peeling paint.

Deck sanding and cleaning happens to those people who choose to use wood-damaging pressure washers.

Our deck restoration contractors have the expertise and experience to put new life back into your deck. A restoration project is more than just pressure washing—in fact, there are times when blasting the surfaces with a high pressure stream can easily damage the wood and harm your deck. Our restoration contractors will assess the situation and use professional grade cleaners and brighteners and then use low pressure to wash the surface. Letting the environmentally safe cleaners do the removal work instead of the high pressure avoids the possibility of damage.
