Rejuvenating Poorly-Built Deck
Please bear with me - I'm not a handywoman and am probably going to explain this badly as I don't know the terms to use!
Our deck is approximately 10 years old and was built by the former owner of our house. A year or so after we moved in, I noticed that the boards used to build the deck appeared to have been laid wrongside-up. That is, the surface on which one walks is ridged and the underside is smooth.
I didn't think this was a problem but the deck is now badly in need of sanding and revarnishing (it's painted) and I can't figure out how to do this.
Can anyone offer any advice? Do we need to rebuild the deck entirely?
Hope I've explained this properly and that someone can help.
