We live in South East Texas (Houston)and we have very high temperatures during summer here. We have had a patio constructed by an independent contractor. He has finished the patio work but is not showing up for the paint work.
He used pressure treated lumber for columns/posts.
Roof type is Hip Roof with OSB sheeting and shingles on top.
What kind of paint should I use to protect it from weather, water and mainly from rotting over time. (I see lot of options in HomeDepot, such as this one, and i am not sure which one to choose).
Couple of columns are in the ground, how do I protect them?
