It’s DECK season people!! Who’s grilled out already? Who’s spent a lovely afternoon outside in your backyard with your family? Who’s already thought about working in your garden, repainting your deck, planting some flowers, or fertilizing the grass? Taken a bike ride yet even? I can say “check” to all of those because when Spring comes around we’re aching to get outside. Living in Ohio, winters are long and hard, so at the first sign of spring my kids and husband are rushing outdoors to soak up the sunshine.
My little girl LOVES to get outside on our back deck and just walk around, crawling up and down the steps, pulling herself on top of our patio furniture, crawling out in the grass and pulling it from it’s ends…she just loves to be outside. Last year we bought a play set and now we really have the perfect outdoor space…a large back deck, nice patio furniture, a hand built sandbox for our kids, and finally a swing set with slide and swings for the kids.
Basically, our deck has become an extension of the living space on our house. It’s our lounge place, our second kitchen, our play area…it’s SO important to us to have a large deck and outdoor space in whatever house we stay in long term. It’s perfect for family dinners, cookouts, birthday parties and more…and being that our yard isn’t enormous, it’s even nicer to have such a great deck.
What we’ve found over the years is that it’s SO important for us to take care of our deck, keep it looking good and keeping it functional. BEHR DeckOver is the perfect product to help us do that and keep our deck a functional space, looking good, and easy on little bare feet.
Our deck 100% needs repainted this spring and I anticipate picking up some BEHR DeckOver to help ensure the job is done right. Using a 100% acrylic formula, BEHR DeckOver conceals cracks and splinters up to ¼” deep, with a splatter-resistant application that dries four times thicker than traditional stain. It’s currently available in 54 solid colors, which is new to 2015.
The advanced formula creates a durable smooth coating to revitalize tired decks, patios, porches and pool decks (even when previously stained), making it less likely to have to replace your deck or concrete surface down the road.
So if YOU want to make sure your deck stays looking great for years to come and remains your outdoor oasis for your family, consider trying BEHR DeckOver to help you along. I look forward to a long summer of cookouts, bare feet, fresh grass, and more and hope you do to!
