Pressure Treated Arbor/Deck

Here is one of the 3 arbors I've stained in 3 days with Gray Away Super Cedar Dark.

I was going to say how did you keep the pool clean. Then I see more water past the pool.

It was a lot of hand brushing/paint padding for this job.

Thanks Dude but you are more than worthy

I have't used this Cedar dark in a while by itself an had forgotten how it looked after stained.It used to be the #1 BGA color for decks before i moved people to 50/50 gold/brown.

Stunning work. After admiring many of your beautiful pics I was hoping you could give me a bit of advice. I don't do decks for business but my deck is going to need a restoration soon. If you were to pick a particular brand of stain that a consumer can easily get which would it be? I know that Behr's is considered junk and some have said Sikkens is okay. I used to use some Sikkens products on a boat and was happy. Is there one that you would suggest?

If I were in Texas I would just call you and have you do it!

Thanks Keth


Where are you located Keth?

It's really not that hard to clean a deck if you have the right chems and clean it in the right process.Feel free to call me anytime if you want a crash course on cleaning and sealing your deck i'd be glad to help

TWP is pretty available in most areas look for it if you can? I can have some of the Gray Away i use all the time shipped to you from Plano also.

If you have pics of the deck that would be easier to see what needs to be done to it?

I am in South Carolina. My deck was done with Olympic Wood Protector oil base semi-transparent stain (Caramel color) just before we bought the house. Seeing your pictures makes me drool and when this Olympic dies I want to do something along the lines of some of the lighter stuff you do. I love the look of your dark cedar but I like to walk around in bare feet so the darker stains here in the steamy south would make it too hot.

You mention TWP but I am not familiar with this brand. Is there a particular chain that might sell it. I will search for their site and see if they have a dealer locator.

Keep up the good work. It is truly nice to see a craftsman who takes great pride in what they do. I think I speak for all of us when I say I admire you.

Cheers,
Keth

PS I can try to get some pics up but the deck doesn't look too bad right now. We are two years into it. I expect the stain to start failing sometime next summer.
