Whew!
TankGirl, our old deck was painted about 8 years ago. The wood couldn't breathe anymore, so it rotted. After only a few years, the paint peeled up in big sheets. There was no way I was going out on it this year, since it swayed a bit! So we just got a nice new one, and now we will definitely stain it instead of painting.
