What are the pros and cons about powerwashing a wooden picket fence (42 inches high fwiw).
Am I right about the cons: It will take a long time to get at the fence from all angles, including the sufaces neaer where the rails and th and pickets meet the round posts.
I'm going to break several of my pickets that might last for years if I don't touch them. (I can no longer find pickets to match, I only have 80 new ones left, and I can't make more because they are flat on one side and rounded on the other.
If I don't do a very good job, there will be noticable lines and spots that are still dirty.
Even if I seem to do a perfect job, it will start getting dirty again and maybe not evenly.
I just don't like the whole idea. In my world, certain things were not expected to be cleaned. I replace the pickets that break because of age, and I replaced the ones that had visible termite damage.
The pros are that it will be cleaner and lighter colored for a couple years or more.
Something said to me makes me expect that I will be pressured to do so some time in the future.
