Hi—I recently replaced a number of rotten boards in my old (50+ years) front porch. Here is what I need to do, and I understand timing is important:
- Let PT wood from Lowe’s dry out (1 month?)
- Pressure wash the old boards because they have years and years of dirt and wear
- Paint the entire porch with a new and beautiful color.
I currently have a striped floor—a mix of old and new wood. Do I go ahead and pressure wash the entire floor now, then sit and wait one month for the new wood to dry out?
Trying to get the order of work just right because I want the perfect front porch—thank you for advice!!
