OOOHHHH! OK, I know what you are talking about. I have seen it at lowes. Yes, it is very expensive. I live on the Gulf Coast and MANY people have very large docks made out of that stuff with stainless screws and hardware. People around here have some $$$$$$.

Hey Grits i did a power washing job today..2 story house, back concrete patio,front concrete walkway and a small wood deck.
It came out awsome and the homeowner loved it. Their was so much algae or mold on the patio and house and when i was done it looked great. I made $550.00 in 3 1/2 hrs so that was cool!

Looks good. Why didn't you put a cap on the wall though? It would have looked so much better. Still a good job.

Because the guy at the block place said it didnt need caps because of the style it was, besides i didnt know better it was the first one i ever did and i did it all alone!

yeah i love doing them too, its the cleaning up afterwards and putting everything back that bothers me :laugh: its really cool though when you take something that looks like crap and make it look new again and then the homeowner comes out and they look like a kid in a candystore...makes it worth it! Hey about that billy goat blower thats on sale...do not buy that one,its the one with the new subaru 9 hp engine and they cant give them away and neither can little wonder with their new subaru 9 hp engine.

My dealer told me today that no dealers are authorized to work on them yet and thats why they are having problems moving them. I just bought the HO little wonder with the 9 hp honda motor today and he had the 9 subaru in stock and it was 200 cheaper but he talked me out of it for that reason,i mean even my dealer couldnt work on it if i bought it! Now im sure eventually dealers will start but right now most dont!

Looks like an old womans garden. The trex will fade actually. It will also get some mold or algae attached to it over time.
