Well darn I don’t really want to go the big drum sander route.

I’ll give the stripper a go and see. What is the best to use, scraper (just a metal paint scraper?) or is sanding it better? I...

The pressure washer got off what you see in the picture when I get the tip right down on the concrete. I think it would take forever to try and do the whole porch, so I think I'll rent an angle...

I pressure washed this approximately a year ago and never got around to painting then. I think it's worth a shot, though, so I'll post an update once I do that.

Prepping porch paint

I have a previously painted (unsure how many times) concrete porch (about 10' x 6') that I am looking to paint.

Unless I get a better recommendation, I'm planning to use Behr elastomeric paint. ...

Ok, thanks for all the help. Yep, the home inspector flagged the rails too. The previous owner was wheelchair bound but I’m planning to just leave them for now. How that ramp has held up on the...

Ok thanks. I like the post on the driveway idea because I do think it's a little tight; I'll give them a couple coats of paint on the bottom to help keep them drier. When you say bracket, you mean...

Awesome, thanks. Those PB posts look like they have big ears that need to be embedded in the concrete. Do they make something for retrofits with just a screw down into the driveway? Does the AB...

There is an entrance ramp to our side door. The home inspector flagged that no bolts were in the ledger board. I see a few nails (I think), but what they are going into I can't figure. The two rim...

Got the diagonals up. It looked like 2' from the post/beam was standard, but since my deck is at most 3', I thought it would look weird and went smaller. I forgot a 1.5" spade bit, but I'll go back...

Got the cleats up. Had a 1/8” gap or so at the top on a couple which has driven me insane all day. I should have clamped them before drilling....

Thanks a lot. I am going to go ahead and cleat/bolt all of those middle posts. The deck sits about 3' off the ground so I'm also going to install some diagonals on the end posts.
