Decks and Projects

Few home improvements can match a wood deck for usefulness, beauty, and enhanced value to a home. A deck increases your home's living area adding space for entertaining, relaxation and dining, as well as offering a play area for children. Decks are also an ideal home improvement project for the capable handyman or woman.

Other backyard projects such as planters, sheds and fences are also fairly simple to build and can add further utility, convenience and value to your home. Natural wood is a long-proven choice for decks and backyard projects that, when protected by a Wolmanized® wood preservative, assures that your project will last for decades, as long as you own your home.
