3 Tips to Revitalize Your Deck

1. Add lighting. Just one electrical access point from the underside of the deck is all that’s needed to integrate ambient lighting. It’s amazing what lighting can do to any deck or permanent structure to make the space more livable. Instead of a big floodlight, which makes you feel like you’re being interrogated, add some nice, soft light out there. 

Set the scene for relaxation with soft lighting.

2. Place planter boxes on top of the railings to brighten up the deck itself. Replacing spindles with curving bow balusters can also contemporize the aesthetic of a deck. 

3. Re-stain! The easiest and most economic thing is a good cleaning and a good stain on a deck. 

When the stain on your deck begins to peel and fade, it’s likely you’ll need to re-stain, also known as re-seal or re-finish, the deck.

Maintaining the deck stain seals the wood from harsh weather and keeps the wood looking new. Without re-finishing, the wood on decks will start to tannin and turn grayish and brown. And then pores start opening up, and the wood starts blistering up, and then there’s water getting in, and then all of a sudden, you have rotting issues.

    One thing I have actually noticed is the fact there are plenty of misguided beliefs regarding the finance institutions intentions if talking about foreclosed. One fable in particular would be the fact the bank wishes to have your house. The bank wants your hard earned cash, not the house. They want the amount of money they gave you having interest. Steering clear of the bank will undoubtedly draw the foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your write-up.

    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
