With the summer fast approaching, we all look forward to trading in our snow shovels for beach towels and scarves for sunscreen. After months of snow and frigid weather, it's about time for some fun! Nothing says fun like a backyard barbeque with friends and family. Is your deck ready for the coming season? If you're like a lot of people, you have probably neglected your outdoor entertainment space. Luckily, you can transform your deck into a centerpiece that you will be eager to show off in most cases well under $75, depending on the size of your deck.
The key to any project involving your deck is the prep process. With BEHR Premium No. 63 ALL-IN-ONE Wood Cleaner, you can clean your uncoated deck and revitalize the wood to its original, beautiful color. This will brighten the wood and make it look like new, as well as prepare the wood for optimal acceptance of a stain or finish.
If you really want to elevate the look of your deck, you should apply one of BEHR's long-lasting wood coatings. Recently re-formulated for maximum durability with an Advanced 100% Acrylic formula, BEHR's Premium Line of wood stains and finishes deliver the ultimate in quality and performance.
If you are looking to show off the natural beauty of your deck, BEHR's line of Transparent Finishes are perfect for the job. If you are looking to highlight the grain of your wood while looking for some additional color options, you can pick from an array of 60 custom colors offered in our line of Semi-Transparent Wood Stains. If you are looking for maximum durability as well as computer color matching, then ourSolid Color Wood Stains are the perfect choice.
If you have peeling stains or finishes on your deck, don't forget to use No. 64 Premium Stain & Finish Wood Stripper prior to applying a top coat. After stripping the old coating, use No. 63 Premium ALL-IN-ONE Wood Prep to brighten the wood for the best visual appeal, and to promote optimum adhesion and performance.
