This week on the Angie's List report, Angie Hicks, the found of Angie's List, talks about your options when it comes to deck maintenance.

If your deck needs a facelift you have plenty of options. Hicks says most experts recommend that you stain it. Unlike paint, a stain won't chip, peel, or crack.

However, while staining your deck may seem like a "do it yourself" project, it is a time consuming job. Hicks says to look into hiring a reputable contractor to do the job correctly.
