Lately we’ve been so enamored with smartly decorated screened-in porches and beautifully painted floors, we’ve hardly had time to notice all the colorful deck ideas people are starting to explore. As the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living spaces continues to fade, many homeowners are taking a much brighter and bolder approach to their patio furniture and deck décor. Everything is getting more showy, from the seating sets and chairs and stools, right down to the decking itself.
Take a look for yourself. You may just find the spark of inspiration to brighten things up on your deck.
If you are fortunate enough to own a home with a deck, then you don’t need us to tell you that they are great outdoor living spaces. But if your favorite outdoor room has become weathered, splintered and gray from the all the abuse it takes from the elements, perhaps you’d appreciate some deck maintenance advice to help you restore your deck to its former glory.
Not unlike the floors in your home, decks require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best. In this brief video, we’ll show you how to sand, clean, pressure wash and refinish your deck to protect it.
Thoroughly cleaning and resealing your deck every couple of years will cost you a lot less than replacing it. Just follow these simple deck maintenance tips and your favorite outdoor room will give you enjoyment for years to come.
