"Media blasting phobia is a live and well I see. Do you only do single story log homes too because you're scared of ladders? Many people have some issues with ladders."

"Hi, Scott. It's good to hear that the stain is still in reasonable shape after 2-3 years.  A good contractor will be able to tell you if you really need to do it right away, or if you can put it off a bit longer. You can find several…"

"Read the customer's post, he says he's looking for someone to media blast. Why are you calling him crazy and trying to sell him gutters and a porch instead? Isn't there a deck forum somewhere where you can try to hawk someone a deck?"

Researching contractors to media blast my home in Reliance, TN

I contracted a man and wife team to clean the outside of my log home and apply Woodgard to it after it dried. Unfortunately, they bought and applied deck stain instead of the already purchased Woodgard.  I called Woodgard and they told me that I'd have to wait 2-3 years until the finish wore off. It's been that long and some of the finish is gone but there are other places that still show the stain.

Clear non-slip surface on stairs

I am sanding my Douglas Fir stairs to my loft. I plan on Danish oiling them when I finish. Is there a product out there that is a clear rubber or latex that has some sort of unobtrusive particulate to coat them to make them non-slippery?
