What is Mill Glaze on Decking and How to Remove?
When using new wood to repair or construct a deck it is important to know that the wood will not stay new for long. When wood is exposed to sun and rain it quickly turns gray and begins to soften. The wood will have to be protected with a deck stain as soon as it seasons for a few months and dries out.
