Topic tags/keywords: deck stain restain spot treat

Only parts of my deck are starting to peel, so i do not want to re-do the whole thing. Can i just spot sand and spot re-stain or do i need to do more. Do I absolutely need to power wash, then sand? Do i need to do a larger area or can i just spot stain? Deck is a semi-transparent brown.

not knowing what part of the world you live in, and what wood
your deck is made of, and how old it is, it is difficult to provide
a definitive answer.
I suggest that you test a few areas and see how you like the results
and proceed from there.
