Add on Azek composite deck, pergola with sleeves, and composite rail and ballasters. Very odd floating footer we had to run per engineering but turned out nicely.

I misunderstood. I thought you were installing on the existing stringers as shown.

Existing wasnít to code when we got contracted so we made it right. No mechanical hardware on stringers existed no ledger board for original stringers etc. was a real wreck and why it was in need of replacing.

I use Sherwin Williams Kem Aqua +. It is a water bourne lacquer.

Assemble, check for surface flaws, fill, sand 150, Gen II primer/surfacer, inspect for flaws, fill, sand 240, Gen II primer/surfacer, check for flaws, fill, sand 240, top coat, top coat.

More work in it than I have to do with MLC solvent base.

White wood fill if there is something big. Prime, fill with Mohawk crayon if necessary. 2 Topcoats.

Yours look real nice. Eventually we'll all be forced to go waterborne.

I like to go over things and fill flaws prior to the finish sand. Has nothing to do with the product, everything to do with my preferred process. By the way M.L. Campbell waterborne suck.

I use trowelable floor filler, Elemers Max or (can't remember the name, sucks getting old[er])

I could go with one coat of Gen II, I've always preferred 2 prime coats. Gives me a chance to go over everything.

99% of the sanding is under power, using a Festool ETS 125, RTS or DTS.

Top coat applications are wash. If it is more than 12 hours between coats, SW recommends a 240 sand prior to the second top coat.

Thatís an obnoxiously full punch list to get a finish like you accomplish but as a perfectionist as Iím assuming you are also, it really looks outstanding. Beautiful man.
