Staining a Wood Deck

Submitted by Scott on Thu, 2011-03-17 13:24

It's that time of year again.  Spring is in the air, flowers are blooming, snow is melting and your deck coating is no longer hidden.  To put it nicely it probably looks awful.  I'm amazed how many people believe that they need to completely re-finish their deck every year.  If that's you then you're getting bad information and more than likely using the wrong product.

Painting Over Oak

Submitted by Scott on Tue, 2010-11-30 15:26

 Painting over oak seems to be a popular thing to do these days.,  I'm as big a fan of wood as there is but at some point it's just too much.  When your floor, baseboards, doors, windows and railings are all oak that has yellowed with the years it's a bit too much to handle.  Add in some oak cabinets and you'll stop seeing anything else.

So how do you start?
