How To Refinish Your Wood Deck

We’re back with another deck-related how-to. This one is courtesy of our friends at Duckback.

Do you have a natural wood deck that you absolutely love, but it’s starting to look weathered? While you certainly can replace the deck with a composite or PVC material, you can also take a little time and make your old deck look new again.

Watch the video below to see what a little elbow grease can do for you and your deck. It’s a simple as mix, pour, brush, wash, dry, and repeat. With these tips, you’ll have a “new” deck in no time!

Share your before and after photos with us, using the #MeeksWestern and #TransformationTuesday. We’ll share some of our favorites on our Instagram.

Technology Is Bridging the Gap

Between the pre-plan stage and the final product, there are a lot of steps. Technology is helping to bridge the gap between design and construction to make the end result more efficient, cheaper, and better all around.

According to experts, using some semblance of digital tools on the job boosts productively 50-60% on average. Technology is allowing the contractor to have input earlier on in the process which cuts down on the time during the build.

Another tool that cuts down on waste is laser scanners. These can not only garner exact measurements, but also help to create 3D models of the projects for review. Combining these models with drone footage, the engineers, builders, and owners can all see a clear picture for the project as a whole.

We’re excited to see new innovations helping to make the job safer and better for all parties. What tech-based projects are you excited to see? Let us know in the comments below.
