Get Ready For Deck Season

porch with ZAR semi-transparent deck and siding stain

Outdoor living space is more important than ever as we practice social distancing and staying at home. Outdoor space, like a deck, can instantly make your home feel more extensive, and done right, can even improve its value as well. As the weather gets nicer, staying at home with your family can mean moving meal time, game night, or cocktail time on your deck. It makes sense to keep it looking its best.


A new wooden deck has a bright, warm, even color of the new deck boards, but it doesn’t take long for those boards to turn off color and look weathered. With little money and little effort, you can bring that deck back to life with deck and siding stain.
