painting Thompson water sealer


thanks Gymschu, friend of mine was a general contractor, im a roofing contractor, that built his own cabinets. he was suppose to help me but didnt, he did say that he would use a router on all the 2" X 4" and use deck screws to put them down, so thats what i did. he ordered the lumber package for me, which i added to. wife paid for the big section and for the step back section. the thomsons she uses is clear. maybe the fact thats its redwood makes a difference in how it holds the sealer. all i know is it hasnt ever peeled or flaked and 20 years is a long time. 115 temps for 3 - 4 months and the last of those months hit 127 and above says something for the product. july and august are really humid the rest is dry. but hell paint jobs dont even last that long here. it does get some shade part of the day. anyway its like what ever works for you. if id had problems with it then im sure id of changed to something else.

I used Thompson's Nutmeg brown in a $12 pump sprayer and the deck came out looking pretty good, though not as dark as the picture might suggest. One gallon on old wood covers maybe 200 feet this way. If you spray too thickly it will end up sticky.

The overspray on the house shingles was irritating, even after you clean it off it is still waterproof and does not match. Maybe I should have got the $20 sprayer!

well my wife is going to put it down like shes has done for many many years, a roller. she says it doesnt take her very long. what took her a long time was the staining, she also had to do each rail.

Good work! And I suppose, hotrod351, while she is slaving away on the deck you will be fine-tuning your old Ford?
