Evening all, been a while but back into decorating mode.And we starting outside this time.
Got a large wood pergola built from pressure treated timbers 6x2 then painted with several coats of think it was Ronseal in green. Has a well established wisteria growing across it on wires and stainless screw in eyes.
All good and holding up well after what 15-20 years. But is time to revisit it some.
The weather facing wood edge (Top upward facing) has started to break up some but the large sides and bottom edge still have a solid paint finish … amazing really. There’s some green growth on the solid painted faces but a quick spray of Jeyes will sort that.
Any suggestions what treatment might be good to apply to slow down the rot and kill any fungus etc. I’m also thinking if it might be an idea apply some sort of sealant to that top edge that’s flaking up a bit? I’m not sure what … I’m thinking like a simple to apply fibre glass or paint on seal that would harden into a plastic seal that could then be painted. But I have no idea what product that might be.
Hoping that makes sense. If not then can post a picture that might explain a bit better.
Keen to do now before garden starts to take off and also the wife available to assist labour wise on Friday and Saturday!
Appreciate any guidance as always. Cheers
