Mostly cambara and with some red merant used on the top of the rails and privacy fencing.
Current coating is Messmers UV Plus done 3 years ago. I’ve used Penofin Red Label in the past.
I plan to strip and brighten the entire deck rails skirt and privacy fencing. Not having to
pressure wash would be nice but I have a machine if you think it’s needed.
Mildew and dirt typical here in southern New Hampshire
I’m not sure what I will put on this time.
Recommendations would be helpful on which cleaner stripper and brightener to use before applying a fresh coating. I really like a transparent coating that brings out the color and grain of the cambara.It’d be nice if something lasted a while.Your thoughts on a coating would be nice too.
A few pictures are attached. Any advice will be appreciated.

We will reply to your comment shortly· 05/02/2022My deck restoration project is finished for this year. Following the Restore-a-Deck process and using the recommended products the results are fantastic. Attached are a few images of the deck after stripping and brightening. Also attached are a few images of the deck after one coat of the semi-transparent stain in Light Walnut. The entire deck is constructed of Cambara with some Red Meranti mixed in for railing tops and trim boards. The deck was constructed in 2008 and to this point has no rot whatsoever. I plan to clean and re-coat in 2023.
