3)    Upgrade Stairway & Deck Railings – Railings serve a vital function in keeping friends and family safe.  However, they can also be used to enhance your home’s aesthetics and beautifully frame your view.  Crafted designs utilizing long lasting, low-maintenance materials like vinyl or aluminum will ensure your enjoyment for years to come.

5)    Brighten your fence -  You can freshen your outdoor area with simple upkeep and maintenance. Wood fences will fade over time so it is important to clean and stain the wood every 6-8 years depending on the location of the fence.  If it’s buried in vegetation or located near the sea, we recommend staining every 4-5 years.  High grade vinyl fence products make this process much easier because there is no need to stain! Simply power wash every few years to keep it looking like new.
