Thing 99b - complete!

99b. Do one thing on my back-up list

Date Completed: 29 Oct 2015

12. Refinish deck (or have it refinished)

The reason this ended up on the backup list instead of the main one was because I honestly didn't expect it to happen. Then my husband got a wild hair one day and powerwashed the deck. That changed everything. We couldn't leave it untreated over the winter, so we took a couple days to repaint the whole thing, including the stairs. The paint we used - a "deck repair" goop roughly the consistency of pudding - did a great job filling in a lot of the cracks. We'll repaint the white railing in the spring.

That really does look great. And having the cracks filled in will help protect from shoveling damage this winter. If you get enough snow to even need to shovel!

Makes me wonder if we could get that goop in our mandatory color. Though we were turned down for deck door reimbursement (they didn't want to set the precedent of paying for repairs when they weren't able to inspect for necessity first, which I totally understand) and as a consolation prize they offered to pay for washing and painting our deck this spring. I don't totally trust them to do a good job of it, but even if we decide to put another coat on it afterward it seems worth taking them up on it!
