deck painting

I am going to paint my deck with same color, it's been 4 years and some of wood peeled out .

The problem is no power wash, can I just clean with the water and paint again?

Do I need to sand it,too?

Also, recommend the roller or brush for my deck painting. Thanks..

You can use a standard pump-up garden sprayer with a couple of good cleaners designed for deck/house and  thoroughly  rinse clean with a garden hose.



Here are a couple of my favorites:


M-1 1 gal. M-1 Deck and Roof Cleaner, Cleans Decks and RoofsZinsser 1-Gal. Jomax House Cleaner and Mildew Killer


Sanding is optional after it has been cleaned and is dry.  The absolute best way to apply stain is with a brush - this will help work the stain into the wood grain and aid in getting in between the deck board spaces.



Also consider using a couple of new innovative products designed to last longer than traditional stains.
