ENDelt's deck thread

One of my favorite things about my condo is my big deck. Unfortunately, my deck's kinda ****ed up. I knew it was ****ed up when I bought the joint, but I've never gotten around to doing anything about it. I'm finally taking care of that now. Over the next couple weeks I'm getting bids on getting work done on it. I figured I should put my digital camera to good use and document the transformation.

An added benefit of sharing the pics here is some of you fellers that like to build stuff and know all about that might pipe up from time to time and say, "Hey, you should do this." Or, "Holy smokes, you dipshit. I can't believe you did that."

I find the deck kinda hard to explain to folks who have never seen it. Hopefully these pics make it easier to understand what my situation is. If I can provide a better picture or description of something, let me know.

This deck job has turned into the movie The Money Pit.

I've never seen a deck like that. Are those alternating 2x6s and 2x4s?

It's nearly finished. We redid that entire wall. Just have to put a final coat on it.

What type of wood is that? If it's cedar, what did you use to get the grain to pop like that?

Most of the wall looks done, except on the left next to the cabinet just below the grill.

Oh - that will be covered by tile anyway. The grey you see is where some tile thinset slopped off the trowel. We need to touch up the color all over that wall anyway.

No cedar in this part of the country. Redwood is comparably priced and I used a Sherman Williams redwood toner on it. Sprayed it. It really did pop nicely, didn't it?

FWIW, the entire deck in that picture slopes a little over a 1/4" per foot (including the counter), but the grill and the stainless doors are level. Which is why it looks a little goofy at the moment. I think the tile I'll be bookending the doors with will clean that "off-kilter" look up a bit.

Hey Phil, quick hi-jack.

I replaced the wrought iron on my front porch with cedar, and we originally planned to wait and paint it with the house. Since then, we've decided we would rather stain/treat it, and keep a more natural look.

Parts of it have weathered more because they are exposed to rain. When we stain it, is there a stain that will make the grey stuff and the non-weathered stuff the same color?

Any other suggestions on products to use?

You can either powerwash the grey away and wait for a few dry days before staining or you can use a baking soda/water mixture to artificially age the newer cedar to match the weathered cedar. I don't know of a product that will overpower the weathered look unless it's a surface stain.
