I built my deck last year and this Spring before opening I plan on painting or staining the deck. I was looking at that stuff deck restore at Home depot and thinking it may offer up a good amount of traction on the deck and the stairs. But the reviews have not been to favorable for it. So I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas. I was thinking of just adding some of that silica sand ( I used it on my garage floor when I epoxied it) but not sure if that will be to rough. Any one else do something that worked well?
