Description: Dipping new siding or decking pieces before installation is faster than finishing after installation, and it gets finish on the backside and ends of the pieces, thereby extending their service life. This method is appropriate for any penetrating finish, such as waterrepellent preservatives or semitransparent stains. It may also be used to pre-treat siding with water-repellent preservative before painting, which can greatly extend the service life of the paint.
