Hi, I am a new home owner, and as such totally new to the world of DIY, but I am excited to 'get my hands 'dirty' and improve various aspects around my new dwelling. One of the first things I want to tackle is my deck:

As you can see the pain is peeling off in various spots, and I don't like the color much either, so I am planning to completely take it off and then re-stain the wood. I am looking for recommendations on how to go about the paint removal.

I tried applying "Paint & Varnish Stripper" from Klean Strip (Klean-Strip Green 1 qt. Paint and Varnish Stripper-QKGS75023 - The Home Depot), but with only mediocre success. The paint does come off, but only with heavy scraping. There is no way I can get it out from in-between the gaps. I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of paint this is (oil? or is it acrylic?) and any paint stripper that likely will yield greater success.

As a newcomer, I would really appreciate some tips from you experts. Thanks a lot!
