RE: teak deck removal questions......

When you remove the plugs. *I heard that if you use a screw and screw down thru the middle of the plug as it hits the old screw it lifts the plug up does this work?

Sounds plausible. Wish I had given it a try.

Yea, that screw technique works, but if you're demolishing the decks why bother? That's normally used when* you're re-plugging one that was put in badly. I also consider that another reason NOT to use epoxy when setting plugs.

RE: teak deck removal questions......

It is very common for bungs to be the source for water intrusion. I would certainly recommend using epoxy to seal up these holes. If you are removing the deck just use a chisel and take a big chunk out with the plug included. If the screw in the plug removal technique works my guess is that you deck is probably not going to be in good shape. If you are just replacing a few plugs then use a very small chisel to chip out the old plug. We will sometimes use the next larger plug if the holes not clean.
