    How to repair splintering decking?


    Hi everyone, is there something I can buy to restore decking? I want to bring it back to life but I have concerns that its just too far gone. I don’t have any power tools, I’ve never done any DIY before.

    "Hi there

    It sounds like the decking may have gone beyond the point of repair and bringing back to life. You would need to be looking at sanding the complete thing down and re-staining.

    Sadly personally, if its gone beyond that point, it may just be worthwhile to quite while you are ahead, get them ripped up and replaced and then staining them as soon as its put down to protect.

    The other alternative is installing composite decking (its more expensive but far better quality)"
