Any suggestions? the tannins and oils make it virtually impossible for
anything that I've applied to stick for more than 4-6 months and strip and
reapply. I'm in the northwest, wet wet wet....... I've been using Cetol
ect. A penetrating oil? Brand? thanks
I'm in Oregon and I know exactly what you mean.
I've been using Penofin on my deck and I'm very happy with the
performance. It comes in a variety of colors to suit your taste too.
HD no longer carries it and Parr Lumber had the best price last year.
I use the original Blue Label stuff.
I use a painting pad and a 4-5 ft handle to apply it. No sense
getting down on the knees if I can avoid it. A tray for a paint
roller works great to dip the pad in. I've tried a roller to apply
it but I find it slower than the pad and it wastes expensive oil due
to dripping down between the boards. I can apply it to 700
sq-ft in a couple of hours easy.
