(BPT) - Summer is here, and that means it’s time for a home maintenance refresh. With record-high temperatures hitting across the country, it’s important to pay attention to your deck.

Contractor and TV Host Chip Wade recommends a new product from Cabot® to extend the life of surfaces. The Cabot Heat-Reducing Solid Stain + Sealer with Cool Feel® Technology is an innovative new offering that blocks UV rays and reflects the sun to reduce surface temperatures by up to 20 degrees when compared to other solid color stains.

Applied just like other wood stains, the product’s unique pigment technology prevents heat from entering the surface. The formula covers old stains and mismatched boards with long-lasting waterproofing and exceptional washability. Dry time is quick too — just 4 to 6 hours, but you should wait one day to replace furniture. It’s available in gallon size at Lowe’s stores nationwide.
