Deck Tools Make Maintenance Easy
If you’ve got a wood deck, you know it takes a lot of regular maintenance to keep it looking good. Two new tools are designed to help out.
  The Sprayglide® attachment (www.sprayglide.com) is a simple device that attaches to any pressure washer wand. A wheel glides along a deck to keep the pressure washer wand at a consistent distance to avoid gouging the wood.
  John Kirkpatrick of British Columbia invented Sprayglide after he became frustrated trying to pressure wash his home’s large deck. Distance can be set anywhere from 2 to 14 in. with the standard Sprayglide, and up to 26 in. with an extension. Attaches tightly with a hood and loop strap. Sells for $25 at major retail outlets.
   Shur-Line (www.shurline.com) recently introduced the Shur-Line Stain System, which holds 1/2 gal. of stain or sealer in a canister. Pull a trigger on the handle to release stain into a pad that glides over the deck. Retail cost at major home supply stores is $35.
  To make it easier to paint the grooves between deck boards, Shur-Line sells the Stain Pad with Groove Tool that slips between 1/4-in. and larger gaps. The 3/4-in. long groove on the paint pad is retractable for flat surfaces, and the tool can be put on a standard extension handle. It sells for $18 plus $10 for additional pads.
