DecksDirect Pro Tip: AZEK Pavers

Sep 30, 2019 10:20:10 AM | Posted in How-to Tips By Jamie

Keep your vinyl deck railing looking gorgeous year after year with these easy steps

 

DecksDirect Pro Tip: Versatile AZEK Pavers

create patios, rooftop terraces, driveways, courtyards, and more!

Revitalize your worn-out backyard areas in an afternoon with the incredibly strong and cost-effective AZEK Pavers. A truly unique and eye-catching way to create a solid foundation no matter the area, AZEK Pavers combines the physical strength and durability of concrete slabs or wood deck tiles, with the lightweight accessibility of modern science. Molded from up to 95% recycled materials such as tires or water bottles, AZEK Pavers are an environmentally-friendly method to breathe new life into a worn-out or stained exterior space, or help your home expand with your family.

DecksDirect Pro Tip:

AZEK Pavers can be used for standard foundation applications such as a patio or rooftop deck, however, they can also be used in low speed vehicle areas like driveways and garages, or water zones such as hot tubs and saunas!

Durable enough to be installed directly over an existing surface, or along newly laid joists, AZEK Pavers provide a beautiful floor space while still offering heightened resistance to harsh weather elements, moisture damage such as mold or mildew and fading. Pavers are generally sold in packs of 8 and can be altered to fit the space you need! Cut the AZEK Pavers to shape and size using a miter saw or jigsaw tool.

AZEK Pavers are often installed on a Paver Installation Grid to make for a quicker installation process and endless Paver pattern possibilities! Finish your AZEK Paver install up to 3 times faster than typical installation and forget using string lines or rubber mallets to complete your look; simply set your AZEK Paver in place, and you're finished. A complete Unit (8 Pavers with Installation Grid) will cover approximately 1.78 square feet and adds about 1-3/4 inches of height to the area.

As the seasons turn and change, be sure to make the most out of every inch of outdoor space you have with AZEK Pavers. Whether you're tired of staining your deck year after year, wanting to cover an ugly oil stain on your family driveway, or create a new outdoor space for the family hot tub; make the most of every area in your home with universal uses of AZEK Pavers.

AZEK Pavers resist fading, cracking and staining for years and years to come all while keep your outdoor space barefoot friendly

Find your inspiration with these easy-to-create Paver patterns!

While incredibly versatile and safe, be sure to not install AZEK Pavers for use as a fire pit or BBQ and grilling area. AZEK Pavers should also not be installed in areas with standing, above-ground water conditions.

If at any point in your project you have any questions, feel free to give our deck experts a call at 1-888-824-5316 or send us an email at hello@decksdirect.com.

DecksDirect Pro Tip: Keep Vinyl Railing Looking Great

Sep 9, 2019 12:17:44 PM | Posted in How-to Tips By Jamie B.

Keep your vinyl deck railing looking gorgeous year after year with these easy steps

 

Easy Tips on Cleaning Your Vinyl Railing System

from Durables to Illusions, keep your vinyl deck railing stunning


Vinyl and composite deck railing systems are a beautiful addition to any home and is a low-maintenance method for increasing security around your family's outdoor space and highlighting the architectural beauty of your home with timeless, traditional looks. With no need to paint or readjust your deck railing ever again, vinyl deck railing lines will last for decades and allow you more time to relax on your deck rather than working on it.

While being an incredibly effortless deck railing design to love, the occasional cleaning will help keep your vinyl deck railing system looking like the clean, pristine dream deck railing you've always wanted.

The clean lines and bright colors of the Durables Vinyl Railing line, shown in Manchester, highlights the classical beauty of most any home


1) General Splish and Splash

As with most railing and fencing, a soft general cleaning will be sufficient for the majority of decks, porches, and patios across the country. Fill an empty bucket with some room temperature water, and slowly add in some soft detergent or a mild household cleaning agent such as Dawn® dish soap. Use a soft cloth or clean rag, soak it in the soapy water, and gently scrub your vinyl railing. Watch as your surface spots and dirt melt away with ease! Avoid any residue left behind by removing any soap on your railing for more than 15 minutes and remember to rinse well with clean, non-soapy water.

2) Pressure Washing

Pressure washing can seem like a wonderful option for cleaning your vinyl railing, especially if your deck has been neglected for a year or two and has some dirt and debris built up over time. While power washing can be a fun way to get a deep clean on your vinyl deck railing, you need to make sure that you're doing it correctly! Set your pressure washer to the lowest setting possible and be sure to use a fan-tip nozzle when spraying. This will keep the water from damaging your rails or scuffing up the finish at all.

3) Pesky persistent Stains

From kids to backyard projects gone awry, a lot of odd things can end up on your deck railing from time to time! From rubber marks or tar and oil, permanent marker or nail polish remover; what's a homeowner to do? Simply use a melamine foam cleaning pad such as a Magic Eraser™ or Easy Eraser™ to wipe away those marks and stains for a beautiful outdoor area.

4) Harmless Mold and Algae

From small black dots to small swathes of green buildup, occasional mold or algae appearances can happen from time to time. This surface-issue mildew doesn't damage or affect your railing material at all, however, it can become quite an eye-sore over time. As these spots are simply resting on the exterior level of the vinyl, give your deck railing a nice, firm scrub-down using a foam cleaning pad or low-level pressure washer. Once rinsed away, prevent future occurrences with a swift wipe of white vinegar over the newly cleaned area.

5) Stronger Cleaners

You've tried a big bucket of soapy water, even ran through a box of Magic Eraser™ cleaning pads; but you still can't get rid of a pesky stain? Try a long-time favorite! Goof Off™ works extremely well at removing stuck-on elements or marks such as stickers, candle wax, tape residue, tree sap, crayon, and more. No tough scrubbing, no discolored spots, just a straightforward way to help your vinyl deck railing keep looking its best!

6) Bring Dull Spots Back to Life

After giving your vinyl railing a thorough cleaning, you may notice some spots that have a duller shine or don't look quite the same as before. No worries, this is quite common, especially with newly installed vinyl. To restore the shine, wipe the fencing down with a clean, damp cloth and watch the shine reappear in minutes. Still not quite as you want it? Dry the surface and apply a non-abrasive outdoor paste wax, such as one from Armor All® or Johnson & Johnson™. House wax, automotive wax or plastic boat polish can also help you revive the shine you want!

7) AVOID

Now, for a few things we recommend putting away in the back of your cleaning cabinet when it comes to your vinyl deck railing:
-Never use an abrasive material to clean your railings such as Steel Wool, sandpaper, or a Scratch Pad. This can dull and damage your vinyl surface possibly beyond repair!
-Never use an abrasive cleaner such as bleach, ammonia, or Nanoscrub to polish up your vinyl fencing and railing.
-Lastly, never use any cleaners, materials, or tools that are not approved for use on vinyl.

The stunning and traditional look of the Durables Ashington Vinyl Deck Railing system is a brilliant choice for protecting any style of home
