    Deck Furniture

    On my deck I have 2 plastic chairs and a plastic table. Both have held up for about a year now. I have a rocking chair as well made out of real wood. B-B-Q grill of course.

    I did not know this existed...

    I dont have a metallic deck but my buddy does. I will have to give him a call and see. He isn't rich by no means so im sure it is well worth it. He cleans it maybe every two months. It looks brand new and he has had it for a couple months now. Good deck.

    What is the best way to keep that wood look natural?

    I dont want to use a stain or any type of coating. I want it to be that bright natural wood. I dont want it to get moldy so does anyone know of some type of chemical to keep this from happening?

    Ipe Hardness? and Fasteners...

    +1 to using high quality tools. Make sure you dont use old tools that are rusty. You want it to be clean and strong. Pre-drilling them holes can be a pain, but in the end.... One nice deck.

    Thinking about a new Deck

    What I would do is set up a meeting. Get him to come out to your house and do a estimate. This will give you some time to get to know the man on a personal basis and see what he knows and what he dont. If he dresses nice and presents himself well, then he could be a good pick. You want to make...

    When Is Deck Maintenance Necessary?

    I have been maintaining my deck about every 6 months. I have yet to see splinters or even loose nails. I don't use the pressure washer because it has to much power. I use a normal hose and it gives it a nice shiny look.
