I have a 30 year old pressure treated pine house. On the sunny sides of my house there are black areas and the wood look dry, underneath the porch it looks fine, just needs to be restained. Can I just restain the parts of the house that aren't "burnt" and pressure was the rest and let it dry out and restain that in about 6months. Do I need to corn wash or will pressure wash be enough and if I need to corn was, do you know anyone in central Louisiana?


I would recommend the corn cob blasting, but if you do power wash and let it dry for a couple of months, you will need to give it a LIGHT bath a couple of days before you stain it to get any dirt and pollen off from the logs. You can just do part of the house, but it probably will not match very well. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 if you are interested in an estimate to corn cob blast.
