Our deck is going to need its regular maintenance and tender loving care in a few months so this is a great instructional for us in time for that process. We live in South Africa in quite a harsh climate and providing proper care for timber is important for longevity so we are most appreciative of the info.

Our deck has a pretty ugly dark brown stain and, as a result, we hardly ever use that area except as a means of getting from the house to the yard. Seeing this project Ive realized that its exactly what our deck needs to turn it from the present ugly duckling into a welcoming space to relax for us to in the outdoors. Great tip about staining between the slats, too. Thank you!
