||Applying a good quality sealer is the best maintenance you can do for wood. Make sure the wood is dry before
applying sealer. With wet treated lumber, wait about six months. The wood must be free of all other finishes, dirt, grease, or
any other chemical treatment. If chemicals from the crystallized on the wood's surface, they must be sanded or scraped off.
If the wood is discolored or mildewed, you can use our exclusive environmentally friendly cleaner to clean the wood. Be aware
of what chemicals you may be washing into your lawn, garden or storm sewer! Thoroughly rinse all chemicals from the wood
and let the wood dry before applying the sealer.
Wood that needs resealing will look porous and dry. Look for signs that
the wood is checking (small splits along the grain), or that flat grain is beginning to delaminate or peel up. Boards may begin to
splinter along the edges. Sand out rough areas, especially where hands will come in contact with the wood. It is difficult to sand
large areas and not have the finish look splotchy.
