We have an older deck we are looking to fix up without totally building a new one. We are planning to remove all the railings, and remove and replace all the deck floor planks with new pressure treated lumber decking.
The deck had previously been painted, although most of the paint has peeled off. While the railings are off, I would like to sand them in preparation for staining the entire deck. The railings are just 2x4s which have been at an angle along one of the long ends.
What is my best bet for a sander to sand off the remaining paint and get these ready to be stained? we are hoping to also use the same sander to sand our fence in preparation for painting later this summer as well.
