Pressure treated posts

brnelsonJuly 31, 2012

Does anyone have experience with filling the grooves on pressure treated deck posts with something that will remain permanently that can be sanded down so that the post can be painted without the unsightly grooves showing? After filling the grooves I was thinking of actually painting it with something like GacoShield product so that I don't have to keep repainting and can wash the posts instead. Otherwise I will need to wrap the posts which I don't want to do as it will impact my deck design somewhat. Any ideas?

What kind of grooves are you speaking? If these are cracks opening up in the wood there is nothing that you can do to stop it and filling the cracks will make things worse.
