replacing a pvc patio roof

Replacing a pvc patio roof   I spend a lot of time on my patio. But over time, the roof had really deteriorated. It became an eyesore full of grit I couldn’t clean, and the list of leaks grew by the year. At LONG last, I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to stroke […]

patio with pallet lounger

Motivation through pressure washing the patio

I think it’s safe to say, some days it’s just really hard to get fired up about doing stuff. Upon doing a sweep with my eyes in every possible direction, undone things can feel like too much.  Unfortunately, in these cases, it’s a matter of getting out of the chair, and forcing myself.
