A solid, well-designed outdoor deck does a lot more than just capture a spectacular view; it adds a feeling of spaciousness to your home by blurring the boundaries between inside and out.   And, while they are designed to be used, over time extensive foot traffic and weathering can begin to make them look gray and old.  If you have an old deck that is starting to show its age, you may be surprised to know that you do not need to tear it down and build a new one in order to recapture its shine.  Cleaning and re-staining your deck will do a lot to revive its original beauty.
