Did you know that there are an estimated 40 MILLION decks in the United States that are more than 20 years old?
A great majority of these decks were constructed using lumber that is just not good enough for long term use. To make matters worse, many of these old pressure treated decks used chemicals that are now seen as potentially dangerous. Do you think this is marketing hype?
