Thompson’s® WaterSeal® has launched its 2014 Deck of Your Dreams Sweepstakes to help transform one family's dull outdoor space into a vision of perfection, with a grand prize valued at more than $15,000. That includes $10,000 in cash for building or repairing a deck, $5,000 in gift cards from the popular Plow & Hearth (http://www.plowhearth.com) of home furnishings and an in-person visit from HGTV/diy Network star, Jeff Wilson, who will offer his expert guidance throughout the design and building process. Enter at http://www.thompsonswaterseal.com from April 5-October 4.
Past winners have included the Beck family in 2011 (tore out a 250 square foot composite deck and built a 750 square foot deck), the Durands from Minnesota in 2012 (built a 10x18 screened-in deck on their new house) and the Freeman family from Georgia in 2013 (just completed a 12x12 octagon-shaped deck.)
Wilson says that considerations when building a deck include size, shape, built-ins and type of wood. “But there are also a lot of creative choices to make once the deck is finished,” he commented. “It’s no different than finishing a family room or any indoor space.” To choose a color of deck stain, Wilson suggests referencing the color wheel, and choosing a color that is opposite of your house color for a complimentary effect.
“The new line of Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Waterproofing Stain at The Home Depot® come in the five most popular colors – Acorn Brown, Maple Brown, Harvest Gold, Sequoia Redwood and Woodland Cedar – which will work with most home styles,” he said.
And since “deck-cessories” make the deck, Plow & Hearth offers the following tips to up the style, function and comfort factor:
Along with the 2014 Deck of Your Dreams Sweepstakes, the Thompson’s® WaterSeal® web site (http://www.thompsonswaterseal.com) will feature a new look and inspirational new projects and deck care advice for the 2014 season.
