Our first deck of this year, and it was in really bad shape when we started. Added 1x pressure treated to box in underneath for storage. Replaced the 1x skirt boards with pvc that were rotted. Builder allowed someone to use shelving boards. :no:

Cleaned brightned, and sanded. We then applied two coats solid stain to the handrails. One coat AC stain to the decking and 1x underneath. Clients were very happy with the results.

Its their new color Semi-Trans Mahogany. This is our first time using AC stain and I was surprised how easy it is to apply.
Good to know. I have 11 gallons coming in today, hopefully enough to get me through my first two A/C jobs. I've got a third prepped and waiting for the customer to decide on a color from my sample board. I should start putting down product late next week if the weather holds. I plan on hand brushing everything, then next year after cleaning, I'll try a stain pad for the second applicatioin. Any thoughts?

We brushed everything. I was worried about my guys over applying and feel like a pad would have make it easier to do.

If your decking is really smooth and you feel comfortable about not over applying I think a pad could really speed up production. Still have to brush between the boards, however for a second coat it should be fine.
