Paint Stain Paint

I have 4 decks around my house not including the pool decking. 20 yrs ago when we first moved in we had them painted all was well. As time went on they needed to be redone, we hired someone and they used stain instead of paint. It was a disaster but we left it as it was. Now it is time to do all the decks again. We want paint can we paint over the concoction that is currently on our decks?

Welcome to the forums!

Personally I wouldn't paint wood decking - a solid deck stain is a better choice. You should be able to paint over the stain but it would be nice to know more about the paint, stain and it's current condition.
