Deck Makeover Giveaway

A beautiful deck is a thing of beauty and joy. But too often we don’t have the time or solutions to make our deck enjoyable. Would you like it to look fresh and well-kept again? Thanks to Perma-Chink Systems stains and finishes, you can make your deck beautiful and enjoyable.

This May, Perma-Chink Systems is bringing you a $1,500 Deck Makeover Giveaway. One winner will be able to select their choice of Deck Defense™ stain color and surface preparation products (wood restoration and wood cleaners). The total prize package is a deck makeover worth $1,500!

Perma-Chink Systems' excellent, performance-based products were launched in 1981 with an unshakeable belief in their promise that its high-quality products perform reliably and exceed your expectations.

Deck Defense is a perfect solution for your wood deck

log home trees

Deck Defense is a waterborne product with penetrating properties like oil, but unlike oil, it hardens into a lattice, supporting and strengthening the natural cellulosic fibers of the wood to protect from the inside out - not just on the surface. Additionally, powerful additives inhibit the growth of mold and mildew on the penetrating lattice. Homeowners can feel secure in the knowledge that their investment is protected from the damaging effects of wind, sun and water.

Deck Defense is easily applied to dry surfaces with a pump up sprayer, roller, brushes, pads or an airless sprayer. Designed for a one coat application, an additional coat may be applied using a “wet on wet” method in order to achieve a deeper, richer color. Wet product should be back-brushed to eliminate splotchy areas and reduce the chances of lap marks and eliminate pooling of product.

Normal maintenance has also been made easier as there will be no need to strip off the product prior to re-application, as it will not flake or peel when properly applied. Just clean the surface to remove any dirt or dried materials, and allow drying before applying your maintenance coat. Clean up with soap and water before the product dries on application equipment.

Today and every day through 11:59 p.m. EST on May 31, 2020, enter to win $1,500 Deck Makeover from Perma-Chink Systems.

It's Lifeline™ Season!

PCS manufactured products have a 3-YEAR SHELF-LIFE!

When it comes to protecting log homes with innovative, safe, and trustworthy products, no name is more frequently called to mind than Perma-Chink Systems. Almost for 35 years, Perma-Chink Systems has firmly rooted itself as the premier provider of cutting-edge log home sealants, stains, and maintenance products. There are myriad reasons why log home manufacturers, builders, and homeowners around the world count on Perma-Chink Systems, Inc. Today Perma-Chink Systems made another step forward toward the environment by offering a 3-year shelf life for all manufactured products. Longevity, or shelf life, is the length of time that a commodity may be stored without becoming unfit for use. The shelf life of our products is an equally important environmental factor in order to reduce the potential impact of undesired disposal that could result from a short shelf life. To maximize your Perma-Chink Systems' products shelf life, follow these important storage tips:

  • Keep containers sealed and unopened to minimize exposure to oxygen and oxidation of the product.
  • Store away from windows and direct sunlight.
  • Store away from heaters or forced air vents.
  • Store away from exterior walls, if possible.
  • Store in a controlled temperature environment (50o - 70o F, 10o - 21o C)

Shelf life of a full unopened container is three years (no contamination from potential airborne contaminants). Product from opened containers should be repackaged into smaller plastic containers sized to be ‘full’ of product.
