Well whilst Mrs AH64 did a generous job with creosote on our bottom garden fence panels, she also managed to get it all over the bottom fit gravel boards!!! I’ve never seen so intense an effort to protect them from accidental spotting end up so failed! Seriously … I’ll put some pictures below.
Anyway in reality they could maybe do with a paint coat or two.
The boards themselves are 20+ years old but 100% perfect, no chipping, breakage and previously were immaculate bar a little green build on the top edges.
I’ve used the Sandtex smooth masonry products in the past with reasonable success but as anyone who’s read my posts will know, I love learning about better products and techniques to apply … of which all have been successful with support from TP folks.
I’m interested in what the best smooth masonry paint might be and the best way to apply it. I’m guessing to roll it on? The concrete upright posts are fine, they were metal clad several years back so it’s just the single gravel board in each fence position. The colour we will keep pretty much to standard finish … there a colour called ‘Chalk Hill’ I think it is that’s a fraction brighter but still basically concrete colour.
And if we can find the right product and method then will do all the other panels as well which (touch wood) were not Banksy’ed up!
