The deck at my house is peeling (and showing at least one previous paint job before the last) and I want to repaint it. I was wondering the proper technique to prep the deck for the paint. I know from the current colours that the last owners repainted and left the original colour on (green over blue paint).

I borrowed a pressure washer. Is it best to strip all the paint (with the washer) or is it best to only strip the obvious sections (ie go over every board once or twice slowly but no more) then let it dry for a week and paint over it?
