Also, I saw some paint at Sherwin Williams that is supposedly stain (including sharpies) resistant. How does everyone feel about simply painting over the graffiti? I doubt it's cheap, but it would take a lot of labor out of the equation.
If you're talking about Everclean paint from Sherwin-Williams it won't let you wash off Sharpie. Being a painter it's one of the things I checked when the paint was first introduced.
I think that it would be much easier for us to just stain over the marks with a solid color oil base stain. No sanding required, no generator, cost - a $3 throw away brush. Then when they tag the bench again we just touch up the stain.
If we put latex paint on the benches and tee signs instead of oil base stain we will be creating a maintainance issue that will not go away until all the paint peels off.
I will talk to SW and see if I can get some stain at a discount.
