Listener Questions

Danny Lipford and Joe Truini

Sap Leaking from Deck Boards

Laurel in South Dakota says, “I had a deck put on 2 years ago, the floor is 2 x 6 pine. It was treated with 2 coats of oil stain. This summer it was starting to have pitch leaking up from the wood in several places. Have tried both Murphy’s Oil Soap and mineral spirits. Both worked for a few days, but it comes right back and is very annoying. Do you have any solutions to this problem?”

Protecting a Table from Water Rings

Cathy in Florida says, “I refinished a kitchen table. Stained the top of the table and applied 5 coats of poly – but it still shows water stains when a cup or glass is set on the table. Is there another product I can apply that will solve this problem?”

Shrinking Vinyl Plank Floor

Janice in Florida says, “We installed plank vinyl and after a year it is now not adhering and seems to have shrunk in many areas. The product isn’t on the market anymore. We don’t know how to fix this without taking it out and replacing it with a better product. This is in about 1100 sq ft of our home.”
