This deck had a Ducan roll on paint applied just a year ago, as you can see in the before picture it didn’t do well. When we came in we replaced all of the plywood decking and installed a vinyl decking from Tuf Dek. Now instead of having to re apply a roll on paint every year they can spend time enjoying their deck. One of the other issues this deck had was the neighbor’s deck looked right onto this deck. We built a custom cedar privacy panel, this still lets the light through but gives both decks a high amount of privacy. We also upgraded the railings by installing a new 2×6 clear cedar top rail.
This is a very simple design for a privacy panel, it definitely adds a focal point for the deck without being overwhelming and taking away from the beauty of the main part of the deck allowing for some custom deck furnishings.
