Have some 15 plus yr. old RR ties leading to a lake. The creosote
still shows through on some, and others are lighter shades.
Is there something I can use, a stain, etc. to make them more uniform?
You might warm up a bucket of liquid tar and paint the wall with
it. Be careful how you warm the bucket and make sure to remove or
loosen the lid.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
We have a grape stake fence that gets creosoted (creocoted?) about
every ten years. Except for a few months after the re-coating, it's
really not very uniform at all.
We're on the original wood, installed in 1972, and it still looks like
new. It only gets watered on one side, very lightly, and it's on the
north side of our house, so it's not in the worst environment in the
world. No rain or snow to speak of, either.
