I need to re-finish my deck which I have allowed to weather. I plan to use my belt sander with extra course paper.
1- How fine does the final sanding need to be?
2- If I leave it relatively rough (medium grit)on the last pass will that affect how long the stain will last?
3- Do I need to take it down to bare wood?
Thanks, in advance for the help.
