Deck Repair Project Update #2 - June 25th, 2016

Hello!

Today is my birthday and who wouldn't want to spend their birthday painting a deck railing at the crack of dawn? As you saw in the last post, I have taken the peeling deck and sanded it down.
 

























Then I went and painted the areas with primer to see if that would help at all.


Primer
I went to Lowe's yesterday, which is one of my favorite stores, and had them match the color for me using a Valspar paint. This paint is called "Duramax" and the guy said that people come in and rave about it all the time to him. It isn't cheap, but it isn't expensive either and frankly I just wanted something that would work and stay on longer than 2 years!


Paint I am using - Duramax
After spending a few hours painting two coats, this is what it looks like now.. I really like it and hope that when it finally starts raining again it will hold up.



1/2 AND 1/2
