Porch Restoration and Painting
John has a lovely fir porch and stairs but it gets a ton of sun which bleaches and dries/weathers the wood. He had applied a deck stain which looked lovely back in the day. The problem with restaining is that, if you have raw exposed wood, it will look very lighter in some areas and overly coated in others. In this case, you have to go with a solid color to even everything out. It took two coats and I'll be back tomorrow to fill in other cracks. It will last him another 3-5 years, after which the porch will need to be sanded down and stained anew- starting the cycle all over again.
