I have sap comming out of some of my deck boards that I installed last year. I chose the best looking heart redwood for the built in bench, an now the seat has sap comming out in various places. Is there a way to remove the sap or should I just replace the boards.

HI bwright,

The best thing to do is replace the boards. If the OTHER side looks good (w/no knots or anything), use that. What I'd do is take up all the 'bad boards' and look them all over and see which is the best one to go where you sit.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: Sealing them is temporary until, one day, a friend/family member sits on the bad board and is walking around with a bulls-eye on their behind. In short, sealing the board is only a temporary solution ...
