Double Your Deck Space with Zip-Up UnderDeck

Zipup UnderDeck

Double Your Deck Space with ZipUp UnderDeck

Are you getting the most out of your deck? Most people focus on using their deck, but forget about all of that space underneath that can also be utilized- even in the poorest weather conditions. The system consists of five simple steps and can be completed by a homeowner with common tools. Lightweight yet durable PVC components lock together for a water-tight seal, yet all or part of the system can easily be removed without special tools.

Preventing Your TimberTech Bulb from Burning Out

Friday, September 26, 2014 10:00:49 AM America/Chicago

Friday Quick Tip... Preventing Your TimberTech Bulb from Burning Out

Like most deck lighting companies out there, TimberTech has switched their low-voltage lighting line to LED. This means you can find TimberTech’s previous incandescent lighting line at discounted prices.

TimberTech Bulb

After years of selling the incandescent lighting line, we received mostly rave reviews on the products. One issue came up time-an-time again: the bulbs keep burning out. The great news is that this is easily prevented by not touching the bulb with your fingers during installation! Simply use gloves or a soft cloth to install the Xenon bulb in your incandescent TimberTech light and your bulb should keep on shinning.
