Cedar Arbor

Here is a 1 yr old cedar arbor i cleaned with bleach/soap no pressure washing just rinsed with the water hose.I didn't get a before pic i had forgotten my camera.

Also pictured is the inside of my sauna soaked with water!

The arbor was stained with Gray Away 50/50 Super Cedar/Super Cedar Dark.

Nice attention to detail. Great work as always. That 50/50 blend looks great too!

Thanks Keth

I only used about 200' of plastic on this job but it's a small price to pay to keep the oil off the pavers.If you get oil on pavers it's next to imposible to remove the oil once it's soaked in the pavers.

Well if you want to spend any amount of time out in your backyard you better have some shade here in Tx!

Yea, I've just never been sold on arbors. Not enough shade for the structure you put up.

How are the bugs? I know in Florida we had to have screened in porches everywhere to go out in the evening.

Thats a strange system that I've never seen. I'll have to take a look.

If bugs are that bad I wonder why there are no screened in areas in Texas like their are in Florida?

I'm starting to see more screened in proches in some neighborhoods so they are getting smarter.

A lot of people don't like the looks of them but once you do get used to them they are very nice
