Those looking to carry out home improvements to their decking may be interested in DIY advice being given by Sadolin.
Pointing out that retreating decking can be done in the space of 24 hours, the woodcare specialist states in the Press and Journal that the items needed for such a DIY project include a bottle of methylated spirits, decking stain and preserver, a brush and broom.
However, when shopping for a brush people should be prepared to spend money on getting a good quality item as doing so "will make for a better finish in the long run".
"Go for a synthetic brush, if possible, and look for one designed for use with water-based products," the firm advises.
In addition, home improvement enthusiasts are advised to ensure that they purchase protective clothing such as rubber gloves.
Making improvements to a garden could be particularly advisable for those looking to sell their home as propertyfinder.com director Nicholas Leeming recently claimed that having a green space in a poor condition "is more likely to put off potential buyers than attract them".
