Home Owner Greatful For Shell's HelpJuly 5th 2017
My daughter Carrie and I went to see Shell Busey at Rona’s in Tsawwassen Mills on Saturday, June 24. My daughter wanted to know if she could repair my 2 patios herself and save me a lot of money as the quote was quite high as contractor wanted to replace both deck covers.

CondoSmarts - Commissioning a Building SystemJune 15th 2017

How To Remove Grease Stain From DeckJune 14th 2017
Q. I hope you get this before Father’s Day due to the embarrassing experience my Dad had last Father’s Day. The whole family was sitting around the picnic table waiting for him to cook the burgers on the barbeque. Then it happened! Dad was doing fine until he decided to be fancy and put the burgers, onions, mushrooms, bacon and all on a tray, very pretty but in his excitement he tipped the whole works onto the newly finished wood deck.
