Yea, I know - shouldn't have painted it in the first place, BUT... We live in a VERY sunny & hot area (West Oahu Hawaii) 20" rain/year. Original pressure treated pine decking also treated with Jasco termite treatment (green) before latex primer and alkyd floor and deck paint 10 years ago. Have repainted 3 times. Needs it again - not bad enough to warrant pressure washing it all off.

Should we put the Jasco on the few bare wood areas again, sand, prime, and repaint? Opinions please about using a full body stain instead of deck paint? Recommended brands?

ANY experience with Krylon Fusion? Says ok to use on wood - with no priming/sanding... plastic coating hold up better in our climate??? MANY THANKS!

I'd try asking in the painting section, you may get a better answer...

I know you have extreme termite situation over there so I would suggest using the treatment.. the copper napthanate will help keep the critters from eating the deck.

As for putting the latex primer over it I think I would have used a alyde based exterior high hide... but anyway.

What I would do if I were you is head into the local paint store and have a look at the new cabot line of solid deck stains they look pretty impressive, I've used the older (make sure it's the deck stain) ones and they have lasted really good.

alkyd, not alyde it's a durable synthetic resin... and my typing isn't.
