deck to protect or wait?
My front deck does not have a roof over it. It is about 4-5 yrs old and nothing been done to it. I was planning on using that new paint for decks. I have thought about waiting till next yr to do this. What should i do wait or paint it? thanks

I guess I don't understand your hesitation. What do you see as the advantage in waiting as opposed to doing it now? After 4 years the wood is as dry as it is going to get.

Yep, what fire guy said, it ain't gonna get any better than it is right now.

I know it will not get any better but i would get something else (got a giftcard). I live at woods all around us and no street lights. I was thinking about buying some solar lights for the yard/house.
