How do I remove discoloration from my deck?


Craig M Doty Asked:

I removed a decal with a heat gun and left a brown discoloration on my deck. What is the best to restore the color of my deck?

Hi Craig,

If the heat was too high from the heat gun, you may have burned the Gelcoat. If the burn is superficial, you may be able to remove it by scrubbing with Boat Scrub and a soft cotton cloth. If it’s too deep, the only solution is to sand out the damaged gel coat and repair it.

Thanks for your question,
