Interesting paraphrasing there, Lobby. Only about half the pieces are
covered or underground, and the portion underground is 1/4 of the
total, so that's 1/8 underground, which could, indeed, be green or
other ugly color.
The part which counts is the half which shows: Eye-level rails, the
ends of porches and steps, uncapped posts, etc.
Also, using multiple colors in front of the client is usually unwise.
Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for
anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one
tumble down the stairs.
Damn. I got the definitive answer today about my problem: NOGO.
I called Homax (makers of Black Flag Termin-8) today and their
customer service guy had all the dope. The EPA, in its wisdom, has
deemed the product to be unclean. Brown is out. But, since the green
has been on the market and advertised as a pesticide, it can stay.
The EPA, also in its wisdom, had deemed illegal any mixing of goops
which can seal, color, and protect from bugs/weather/mildew, so I
can't even make my own replacement.
I'm now looking for the right color of deck stain to at least seal and
color the cut ends of pressure treated wood. <thud>
