    It's cedar that's been sealed/stained (not painted, [sorry, not clear on that]), and I need to re-seal/stain it. IMVHO, it doesn't look "weathered," it looks "shitty."

    Besides being told I "should," I figured sanding it first would make my seal/stain application last longer. Again, what the hell do I know (besides I hate all of you)? Nothing.

    So, do I buck up and rent a belt sander when I go back to Home Repo and rent a goddamn power washer because you guys told me to, or fuck the sanding because you guys will think I'm gay if I sand it?

    if its not painted or going to be painted dont sand it.
    the sealer goes deep into the wood, impregnates it really, and you wouldn't be doing much but working your arm by sanding. sanding is to smooth out the hard edges between exposed wood and old paint that doesn't scrape off.

    in what way does the fence look shitty?

    color?
    is it rotting?
    moldy?

    Fuck the sanding: Got it. Consider it fucked.

    It looks shitty in that the color is off (kind of a weather-beaten, mildew-y grey look) and it's getting kind of splintery.

    PS. I am not a rancher.

    I imagine the very nice woman that lived with him the entirety of the last season while he was unemployed and photosluttting has decided the fence looks shitty.
    He must improve it.
    that help?

    Just goofing around. Homeownership makes me aggro.

    edit to Woodsy: Actually, I'm the only one that notices stuff like this. It's my pet project and a good way to keep from getting a real job.

    rent the power washer. wash it. let it dry. seal it. some sealers come tinted, use a tint to your liking.

    good point.
    i forgot you dont have humidity.
    okay, other option, its sun damage.
    no need to powerwash. if some bords are splintery, replace them with new vertical grain cedar. then re-seal. its a good idea to use the same sealer that has been used to date for sealing the fence.

    MAKE UP MY MIND BITCHFACE!


    You know what? I'm going to sand the fence just to say I did it. Screw you guys with your lazy, defeatist attitudes.

    Talking

    yeah, at this point just go with your gut instinct. the first choice is usually correct when no one really knows what the fuck they are talking about.

    sand it up!

    save the sand created; its for insertion into your vagina when you've had enough sanding and want to come on the board and vent.

    we'll see who the bitch is when all the veggies come through :roll: yeah, shit I'm gonna be doing all that work too I bet. Oh well, it beats being a single renter. kind of.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Dude, you are totally going to be putting in a brand new fence anyway cause there's no way this one won't get fucked. Sanding a standing fence is going to be ass work too dude. ASS

    When the time comes get one that will look good "weathered"

    I just doublechecked and there is definitely a bit of mildew in one section, probably from our neighbors retarded sprinkler addiction. This thread is quickly becoming the wide-brake P18 thread of fence maintenance.

    This has gotten out of control. I'm going to send some resumes out instead of fixing the fence. Fuckit.
