Need Some Advice
I started priming my new porch railing today and it is looking great. The old railing had turned spindles that were too far apart. This one has square one-inch spindles spaced one inch apart. Although the railing will look wonderful painted a creamy white, I'm a little nervous about the upkeep. The old fence was terribly stained from all the yard debris that landed on it daily: cedar droppings, pollen and bird droppings. With this new railing, I've been spraying it clean every day when I water the flowers, but I know that will be hard on the paint. I've been thinking about applying a coat of polyurethene on the top rail, which is made of pressure-treated wood. Does anyone foresee any trouble with that?
