quick question in regards to sandpaper #'s. I want my deck to be smooth as well as look good before I put on the stain. I was told by my brother to use 80 then 120 to really smooth it up. Can anyone confirm that? My deck isnt in hideous condition by any means but its about 70% quality out of 100. Also to apply the stain, is a roller okay or is there something better?

It depends on type of wood, but 100 to 120 is usually what we do for interior work. 80 might be OK for exterior - but like I say, it depends on type of wood and colour of stain and whether you use floor sander or orbital

Excellence is its own reward!
