New patio step


Generally how long do I wait before I can paint treated wood? Should I paint the Azek at the same time? How will Azek react to paint? What is the proper paint to use? Do I prime it first?

New patio step


I had this patio step installed last June 2011. Should I apply some Thompson's WaterSeal right about now? Is it safe to leave it as is?

Forget the Thompson's, prime and paint it.

Zinsser 123 for the primer and any "quality" acrylic paint for the top coat. Sherwin Williams "Super Paint" has always been my go too.

I'm no paint pro so post you're question in the painting section and my answer may not apply.

I can tell you this though...paint and primer in the same can is a bs marketing ploy... don't fall for that one.
