For those that don't know much about Shane, his wood restoration work is absolutely incredible......The man knows his stuff!

Great job as always, Shane! :thumbsup:

Speaking of unloaders, last week mine stuck and blew up from the pressure build-up. I was standing over it at the time and got a nice 3000 psi blast to the face and one of my eyes. Looking back, it's kind've funny now but it could've been bad. :blink:

How many hours did that job talk and is there a lot more to the deck than what is pictured?
Drove up to the house at 10:30 a.m and loaded up the equipment 2:30 p.m.So i would say total cleaning time was about 3 hours.

That's about all of the deck it was pretty simple and easy

Thanks Don you making me blush! ;)

I didn't have pressure build up/ loss or anything.It's just when i pulled the trigger the water started leaking from the bottom of the pump.I saw a little water trickling down the unloader.

3000 psi blast in the face Don that can't be fun bu give you a new hair style :laughing:

Nice work. Kinda surprised they didn't ask you to do the fence in the background after seeing your deck skills.

Well i priced the fence but they were looking to not spend a bunch of $$ now.They are also looking to sell the house in a few months and didn't really want to invest in cleaning and sealing the fence at this time.
