Steps to Refresh Your Outdoor Space
Bring out your wood’s best attributes with proper cleaning, color and coatings — whether the deck’s been there since move-in day or it’s a brand-new addition.
To get the smoothest application and best results from your stains and paint, start out with a clean, even surface.
Supplies to Get You Started
Use paint, stains and sealants to beautify and protect porches, patios, decks and other outdoor areas. For older wood, use a resurfacer to fill in gaps, scrapes and splinters first.
