This course delivers everything I've learned since 1990 about applying the best deck finishes. – Steve Maxwell

Love Your Deck cover finalIn 1990 I got fed up with the poor results I kept having finishing outdoor wood. That’s why I decided to get serious about learning and researching which products actually do the best job on decks, and how to prepare wooden deck surfaces to accept those products.  I’ve never stopped this research and the Love Your Deck course I’m telling you about here is the current result.

Love Your Deck includes everything I’ve learned over the past 20+ year about finishing outdoor wood so the results last, including the best current finishing products (I name names and suppliers), plus the most effective preparation techniques for both new decks and older ones. Preparation is key since even a good deck stain will fail without proper prep.

So try this course risk-free and see for yourself. If you don’t agree that Love Your Deck is the best, most detailed and most helpful wisdom on finishing wooden decks, just let me know. I’ll refund your money right away. You’ve got nothing to lose and a lovable deck to gain.
