Whether you own a deck made from wood, vinyl or composite materials, weather and usage causes natural fading and deterioration over time. Even if you sweep and wash your deck often, it will inevitably show its age. You don’t have to break the bank though to give it new life. Consider the following top inexpensive steps to revive it:
Paint the Deck With Patterns
Although homeowners often use durable, weatherproof exterior paints to revive their decks, one trend that has gained traction over the last few years is homeowners painting the floor boards of their decks with creative designs. Buy existing stencils that you like or create your own. Paint the entire deck with one background color and then paint one or more patterns on the floor. Popular designs include vines, flowers and other plants, butterflies, mandalas and geometric shapes. Some homeowners even choose to paint faux carpet, tile and stone floor and path designs.
Preserve It Against the Elements
If you prefer a natural look or you merely want to bring back and retain the luster of the original stain, hire a professional comprehensive deck cleaning and protection company to clean and preserve your deck. Experienced professionals know which cleaning supplies to use to prevent damage and never use harsh chemicals or high pressure washer sprayers. They also typically offer a staining service that includes application of a UV-protection sealant that helps prevent stain fading and surface deterioration.

Balustrades are more than just the almost-mandatory safety precautions you install around your dwelling. The truth is that these safety utilities have metamorphosed past mere preventative measures into something much more profound – a culture and an aesthetic, like icing on a cake, but with actual safety utility.
Romantic dramas that show a young man in love, leaning his hands on the railing and gazing out over the melancholy seas (*cough* Titanic *cough*) did its part in this Cultural Revolution. Likewise, the cookie-cutter action film showing our hero pulling himself back up to safety with the help of – yup, you guessed it – a conveniently installed, life-saving balustrade also added something to the mix. Why? Because handrails and balustrades are as tasteful as they are useful!
Decks, landings, porches and patios all seems equally bare without some form of balustrade, and for good reason. Architecturally speaking, these un-invasive boundaries let us know where a space begins and ends (and, generally, also where safety ends). They inform the structural space they’re placed in as much as they protect those who use it.
Installing them around your house is a no-brainer, then. Even finding the right type of balustrade solutions is easier done than said. Installing them, even more so. They are much less difficult to install than they used to be a decade or so ago. Gone are the days of spending your weekend donned in construction worker garb trying to improve your home’s exterior. DIY steel balustrade kits have … Read More
Giving the aging walls of your home’s interior some TLC is a ritual that every homeowner should be familiar with – in fact, it’s the type of thing that makes home, home. Next time this opportunity comes your way in the guise of some form of tedious manual labour, why not see it as a chance to put more than just a personal touch on your dwelling, but to recreate it entirely into whatever you want? That takes care of the what, now you just need to figure out the how…
The choices, like all choices in this complex, modern world of ours, are endless. The standard “new-layer-of-paint” argument will always have a place in home remodel, although, admittedly, it can sometimes seem like a waste of potential. Elaborate mosaic tiles will certainly be an interesting route to take, but it definitely is aniche choice that can either result in soaring success or crumbling failure, stylistically speaking.
We know… these little intricacies are the details responsible for unhinging society– throw in budgeting and poof, it all goes up in smoke. Luckily, our modern world is also more than capable of providing a simple solution to a complex problem.
Some products, like a new initiative for stainless steel wall tiles, is one such a solution. With an installation that could be done simply and effectively in a DIY capacity, steel tiles are at the forefront of go-to wall maintenance solutions – that means goodbye to our time-worn “new-layer-of-paint” retorts and … Read More
Crawlspace is one of the most dreaded places for many home inspectors. It’s where you get to interact with rodents, cobwebs and spiders. It’s also a place with tight spaces and where you are likely to find stagnant water. However, as uninviting as this place may be, it’s always important to inspect it whenever you embark on a home inspection. Remember that this is the place where you will find most of the house structural systems and mechanical systems. Crawl spaces may also contain electrical wiring runs. Clean Crawls Insulation Installation and Removal is an American company that specializes in crawl space insulation, removal and installation.
Where to begin?
Crawl inspection can be a bit overwhelming especially if it’s your first time on the job. This becomes more difficult if the crawl space covers almost the entire footprint of your house. However, to make the inspection a success, you should break the process into various sections. Embark into one section at a time. To prevent confusion, you can mark areas that you have already covered with a spot of ink. During the process, you should equip yourself with important tools such as face mask, screwdriver, a fully charged flashlight as well as kneepads. The screwdriver is crucial for probing rotten wood. Don’t forget to carry a camera that can take pictures or even a video. Other important tools that you should carry into the crawl space include live voltage detector, tape measure as well as a moisture meter.
