What to do to seal this sign?
Last fall, my subdivision had this new sign built and we were told to wait 6 mos for the wood to dry out before sealing it. We plan to use a clear seal. To save money, two of us are going to do the work. To make sure we do it correctly, I wanted to check with people here. We're going to have an upcoming week of no rain and high temperatures so it's a perfect time to get it done. (middle Georgia) To make sure the surface is clean, is wiping with rags a suitable way to do that? The sign face isn't wood and has to be protected from the sealant so I figure we'll wrap it with plastic. Would one coat of sealant do or should we plan for two? And should we use real brushes or foam ones to apply the seal? After sealing, we'll put plants around the base.
