Soon, winter will be winding down and homeowners will start planning and prepping for - a variety of outdoor projects for spring. From cleaning, repairing or replacing decks, to creating raised beds for veggies and flowers, now is the time to start gearing up for those spring projects. Cleaning up Start with spring cleaning existing structures. Take a weekend to clean decks, gazebos and pergolas of dirt, debris, mold and mildew. For structures made of naturally durable Western Red Cedar, a broom, garden sprayer and hose, plus a little bleach are all you need. Sweep winter debris such as twigs and leaves from decks, taking care to clean between planks on horizontal surfaces. This facilitates airflow and drainage, and can help prevent a buildup of moisture when spring showers arrive. Next, use a garden sprayer to apply a-mild oxygen bleach solution to kill mold and mildew. Be sure to leave the bleach solution on the wood surface for approximately 30 minutes, and then rinse with water. Never use a pressure washer as it can damage the wood. -

Maintenance and repair Carefully inspect outdoor structures for wear and tear. While Western Red Cedar contains natural preservatives that make the wood durable, all outdoor structures require annual care, including those made of pressure-treated lumber or composites. Check planks, beams and boards for cracking, warping or rough spots and repair accordingly. Replace damaged wood, and be sure to examine hardware to ensure it’s working properly and free of rust. New projects If you’ve always dreamed about lounging on a lovely deck on a summer afternoon, or savoring a spring morning beneath the shade of a decorative pergola, now’s the time to start planning the project. A great deck is the showpiece of an inspired backyard, and spring is a prime time to add one. To ensure your deck affords you the most value and enjoyment, consider using an online deck planner to help you envision your deck before you begin building. As gardening grows in popularity, you might consider adding raised planting beds to your landscaping. Raised beds not only make caring for and harvesting your garden easier no bending required - they can also function as a decorative enhancement to your outdoor environment. The material you choose will influence the longevity, beauty and enjoyment of your structure, so carefully consider your options before deciding. “Many homeowners choose

Western Red Cedar for its beauty and natural durability,” says Paul Mackie, western area manager, Western Red Cedar Lumber Association, or “Mr. Cedar” as he is known in the industry. “It has a deep, rich luster that other woods and man-made materials just can’t match. Plus, it’s a greener choice because it’s renewable and recyclable - unlike composites - and doesn’t require chemical treatment as non-durable wood species do. It’s naturally rot and insect resistant, and you can stain it or leave it natural, depending on your preference.” The green qualities and durability of Western Red Cedar make it a great choice for virtually any outdoor structure - including those popular wooden playsets that begin appearing like wildflowers in backyards across the country every spring. Whatever project you’re dreaming of this spring - from building a new deck, pergola, or planting beds to refurbishing an existing outdoor structure or palyset - careful planning, cleaning, maintenance and the right materials can ensure your project adds value and beauty to your home environment.

First June Ballots Heading Out to California’s Military and Overseas Voters As early as today, county elections officials may begin mailing June 3 primary election ballots to California voters serving in the armed forces or living abroad. The federal Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act requires military and overseas ballots be sent no later than 45 days before a federal election day. However, recognizing the extra time needed to get ballots to and from faraway locations, California county elections officials often start mailing ballots to military and overseas voters as much as 60 days ahead of Election Day under California Elections Code section 3105. California military and overseas voters may use a Federal Post Card Application to simultaneously register to vote and request a ballot. The application and other essential election information are at www.sos. ca.gov/elections/elections_mov.htm. California Secretary of State Debra Bowen also offers a dedicated email address at mov@sos.ca.gov to connect military and overseas voters to staff who can offer additional assistance.

“Distance presents a unique challenge that requires more advanced planning for Californians living abroad or stationed overseas,” said Secretary Bowen, the state’s chief elections officer. “To reach these voters around the world, I offer military and overseas voters a onestop shop of nonpartisan online tools so they can ensure their ballots are in California elections officials’ hands by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.”

To qualify as a military or overseas voter in California elections, a person must be: § An active member of the United States armed forces or an auxiliary branch; § A U.S. citizen temporarily living outside U.S. territorial limits or the District of Columbia; § A person living on a merchant vessel documented under U.S. law; or § A spouse or dependent of a

member of the U.S. military or an auxiliary branch. The last day to register to vote in the June 3 Statewide Direct Primary Election is May 19. Keep up with the latest California election news, trivia and tips by following @CASOSvote on Twitter.

Cool season skin care: Leading dermatologist shares easy-to-implement skin care tips rooted in moisturization Women across the country, whether based in the snow belt or Sunshine State, notice and feel the effects of cold weather and climate shifts on skin. Plus, 2014 is turning out to be one of the harshest winters to date thanks to the Polar Vortex - a combination of record-setting snowfall and plunging temperatures. Harsh winds, precipitation, dry heat and temperature fluctuations can wreak havoc on skin, making the cooler months an ideal time to map out a skin care routine that is rooted in moisturization. The right facial moisturizers are just the first step in keeping skin looking and feeling beautiful and healthy. Beyond products, a holistic skin care approach - which includes everything from the right diet and working out to maintaining a balanced lifestyle - is a tried-and-true way to achieve glowing skin. Board certified dermatologist Dr. Debra Luftman is a lifestyle and wellness experts on the Simple Advisory Board. Simple Skincare, a range of facial skin care products sensitive to skin needs, created the board to help women everywhere Page 6

discover the benefits of a holistic approach to skin care and to look beyond their typical skin care routine. Here are some of Dr. Luftman’s easy-to-adapt tips to help women keep their skin smooth, soft and ohso-moisturized in the cold weather months and beyond. Be shower savvy Ditch the overly hot water for a lukewarm temperature so as not to zap much-needed moisture from skin. Post-shower, gently pat skin with a towel (so it is partially dry) before liberally applying a body lotion (look for ingredients like shea and vitamin E to ensure skin stays hydrated). The combination of damp skin and a moisturizing body lotion allows water to be locked into the skin - ultimately creating a “moisture sandwich” that keeps skin hydrated throughout the day. Make moisturization a daily priority While it can be easy to skip facial moisturization in the time-crunched mornings and evenings, it is an essential step in any skin care routine. Moisturizer, when applied to the face, acts as a barrier to water loss

The San Clemente News

- locking in hydration and leaving skin soft and supple. Women can revamp their skin care routine with the new Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer. Its fast-absorbing formula (which is packed with multi-vitamins) delivers a soft and smooth base - creating an ideal surface for makeup application. Additionally, the new Simple Nourishing 24-Hour Day/Night Cream, made with shea butter, is a great option for hydrating thirsty skin. Think beyond the face Facial moisturizer should also be applied to the chest, neck and hands as these parts of the body are the first to show the signs of aging. When assessing facial lotion labels, it’s important to realize that what is left out is as important as what is put in. Consider products that have no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh chemicals that can upset skin. Harness the power of a humidifer Skin’s softness is based on its

water content. When there’s a lack of water in skin, it can get dry and itchy. Strategically placing humidifiers throughout the home or workplace is an easy way to combat dry air - ultimately helping skin retain its moisture levels. Before heading to bed, place a humidifier in the bedroom and apply a rich facial moisturizer to treat skin to the “beauty sleep” it deserves. For more tips on how to maintain beautiful skin in the winter and beyond, as well as additional advice from Dr. Debra Luftman and other Simple Advisory Board members, visit www.simpleskincare.com.

ARTISTS SHINE AT FESTIVAL OF ARTS Some are young, some are gray. Some are new, some are here to stay. They may be different as night and day, but these artists are all the same, in one specific way. They are the artists of the Festival of Arts -- 140 of them -- who will display their wide range of talents during this year’s Festival Art Show from July 6-Aug. 30 in Laguna Beach. The artists are all local, but their experiences span the globe, and it shows in their work. They are wood craftsmen, jewelry makers, glass blowers, photographers, digital artists, watercolor painters, oil painters, sculptors, and more. They share art as their passion, but their lives and history couldn’t be more different. And let’s face it; artists are different. All of this year’s 140 artists have a story to tell. They speak through their art, but they are also available for interviews. Below is a small sample of a few artists and a brief description of how they are unique. And feel free to read the bios on all 140 artists by going to http://www.foapom.com/summer-artshow/gallery/ Gary Zuercher Zuercher specializes in digital imaging and High Dynamic Range photography. Getting personal: While serving in the U.S. Army in Korea in 1968, he was subjected to ionizing radiation. As a result of the radiation exposure, he developed an incurable bone marrow disease, Polycythemia Vera. For the last seven years, he has undergone chemotherapy and

other treatments that have so far been successful. He has a studio in San Clemente. Michael Jacques Jacques’ current medium is wire sculpture, and also has a history of success as a painter, combining oils and acrylics on panels and canvas. Getting personal: As a child, Jacques asked his father for a new bicycle, and his father directed him to the local junkyard, where it took Jacques months to gather the material to build his own “new” bike. That type of upbringing had a profound impact on Jacques and his brother, Russell, who also is an exhibitor at this year’s Festival of Arts. “We were busy, industrious boys who, out of necessity learned to use hammers, nails, wrenches, saws and even learned to sew, all the while developing handeye coordination that prepared us for our adult lives as artists,” said Jacques, who also has an extensive comic book collection. He is an artist and teacher at the Laguna College of Art & Design and has had a number of his works purchased by the Smithsonian. Marcus Thesing Thesing specializes in glassblowing: Getting personal: Thesing grew up the son of a sculptor. He was sure he wanted to be an artist, but couldn’t figure out which medium to specialize in. While at Orange Coast College, Thesing took every art class there was available, but didn’t know which direction to take. Then one day he met John Barber, a master

Saturday - April 12, 2014 8am – 3pm San Clemente Community Center Avenida Del Mar & Seville

glassblower in Laguna Beach. Barber invited him to visit his glass studio to witness molten glass being made into art, and Thesing was hooked. After working with Barber for nine years, Thesing opened up his own glassblowing studio in 2003. Rachel Young Young’s primary medium is sculpture. Getting personal: Young’s sculptures include those of both man and beast, and often are a combination of the two. “I delight in giving tangible, dimensional form to the fantastic beasts wrought from millennia of oral tradition, our collective imagination, and the ephemeral but savage creatures that lurk in the subconscious,” she

said. Young has been working with clay since childhood, but she is much more as an artist. She also is a photographer, painter, illustrator, as well as a metalsmith/jeweler. She lives in Dana Point. Sean Hunter Brown Brown specializes in surf/ocean photography. Getting personal: A surfer for 30 years, Brown uses his understanding of the ocean to capture the essence of a wave breaking wildly and freely through the lens of his camera. He has a passion for nature and the environment, stretching beyond the ocean, evidenced by his work as a consulting arborist, with emphasis on protecting native oak tree resources in California.

Restaurants serve up opportunities to give back Approximately 980,000 restaurants serve communities across the U.S., according to the National Restaurant Association (NRA). Many have deep roots in those communities - they know the needs of their neighbors and recognize they are an integral part of everyday life. Restaurants understand the positive impact that community involvement can have. From partnering with local charities to supporting food banks and soup kitchens, the industry has the capacity to influence and raise awareness on issues in a meaningful way. The industry’s annual charitable activities are estimated at approximately $3 billion. Hunger relief is a natural cause for restaurants to adopt. Roughly eight in 10 donate food as part of their charitable giving. With more than 35 million Americans living with or on the brink of hunger, the restaurant industry is in an ideal position to help those in need. In 2013, the NRA and its philanthropic foundation, the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF), partnered with Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. Thousands of restaurants and millions of consumers worked together for this national fundraising event to help make sure no child in America grows up hungry. Hunger can strike any community

at any time and restaurants are often on the front lines helping to serve those in need. Following the devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., earlier this year, former students from Olathe Public Schools’ ProStart program - the NRAEF’s two-year high school program that trains students in culinary techniques to management skills - traveled from Kansas to prepare approximately 3,500 hot meals for affected families. Additionally, restaurants are supporting their communities in unique and creative ways besides hunger relief. King Eider’s Pub in Damariscotta, Maine, knew that, due to the down economy, some of its neighbors were having to decide between buying groceries for their families and paying their heating bill. The pub established the Lincoln County Community Energy fund to help people pay their heating bills in the cold winter months. Because of its commitment to its community, King Elder’s Pub won the NRAEF’s 2012 Restaurant Neighbor Award. Sponsored by American Express, the award celebrates outstanding charitable service by restaurant operators. In 2011, the NRAEF’s Restaurant Neighbor Award winner, Kona Kai, partnered with the Halo Network Foundation to offer a six-week

training program for people in need. The program included on-the-job training in espresso-making and other foodservice and hospitality skills. Meanwhile, in Oklahoma, a McDonald’s franchisee closed a restaurant for renovations, but set aside money to pay employees to volunteer during the process. Forty employees participated in the volunteer program. The NRAEF has found that charitable programs are more successful when employees are

actively involved. Today, the industry wants to be more involved with charities, serving on boards and offering volunteer opportunities for staff. An employee-driven initiative helps boost morale, as well. Employees feel good knowing they are not only doing their job, but also are making a difference in the lives of those in need. Giving back to the community is a way to give thanks to the patrons that support their favorite restaurants 365 days a year.

Three-room makeover takes homes from simple to sensational this spring Spring is the season of new beginnings, so is it any wonder that many Americans think about home improvement and brightening their decor when the weather warms? Simple updates can bring the cheerful perspective from the outside indoors, and revive any room just in time for warmer weather. Make your bathroom bloom Relaxed modernity is ideal for a bathroom, and a serene palette is a great step to create this calming oasis. Use the beach as your muse; pastels such as light blue and eggshell white will create an oceanfront vibe no matter where you live. To bring the coastal feel to the forefront, you can easily add waves to your walls with new FrogTape Shape Tape. The tape is a pre-cut painter’s tape available in wave, chevron and scallop patterns, perfect for decorative painting. Shape Tape is treated with PaintBlock Technology, which creates crisp paint lines - keeping your painting projects looking professional. It’s simple to add ripples of waves to your bathroom walls, accessories or even the shower curtain. The finishing touches tie any room together, and the bathroom is no exception. The right accent rug

and towels will transform the look of your bath with minimal effort and deliver maximum style. Updating your decorative accents will complement your new spring color scheme, and leave the space feeling refreshed season after season. Spring-ready sleeping chambers Light hues are a great go-to for spring home decorating; utilize one of 2014’s hottest trends with a whitethemed bedroom. Not only is white timeless and versatile, but it allows an array of interior design options. Add crisp white curtains to your windows to brighten the room, and for a chic addition, add a delicate white canopy to soften the atmosphere even more. For a hint of color, add in shades of muted teals - a top color for spring this year - on accessories throughout the room. If your spring style calls for more color, add vibrant bursts throughout your boudoir. As the bed is the focal point of the master bedroom, make it the center your attention as well. Fresh fabrics and linens are essential for spring, so opt for a delicate coverlet in your favorite pattern. Also, incorporate decorative vases filled with fresh flowers throughout the space, allowing the fragrance

of spring to accompany your fresh decor. Spring-spruce the living room To kick off spring with color and character, add an assortment of patterned throw pillows to your living room. Mix and match fabrics and patterns - geometrics, florals and stripes pair well together. It will give your living area visual texture and is the perfect way to perk up this room for the season. If you’re not in the mood for a complete room redo, use your existing color palette as inspiration; simply add in complementary shades to create a modern and harmonious look. Looking to turn heads with a simple spring update? Reposition your furniture. First, determine the main furniture piece in the room, and place it in a position that welcomes guests so that it serves as the focal point. Next, rearrange your other furnishings, photos and artwork for a whole new look that will take your

visitors by surprise, without spending a dime. Be sure to keep items from blocking any natural light - a well-lit room is great for any time of year, especially spring. With these simple home updates, you’ll be sure to awaken your abode with springtime appeal. For design inspiration and more information on Shape Tape, visit FrogTape.com.

Champions to Cure Duchenne Raises More Than $360k Photos by Patrick Rogers CureDuchenne, a nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, held its annual Champions to CureDuchenne Newport Beach Gala at the Balboa Bay Club and Resort. Over 250 guests attended the gala that celebrated CureDuchenne’s 10 years of successfully advancing Duchenne research. The event raised more than $360,000 that will help fund promising Duchenne research. The Champions to CureDuchenne gala highlighted the urgent need to find a cure for Duchenne, a progressive muscle-wasting disease that impacts 1 in 3,500 boys. Boys with Duchenne are usually diagnosed by 5, in a wheelchair by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s. Currently, there is no approved treatment for Duchenne. CureDuchenne honored Doug Freeman, a nationally recognized former tax attorney and business executive, who played an integral role in establishing CureDuchenne’s successful philanthropy model. Freeman provides strategic planning and organizational management advice for business, nonprofit, foundation, and family clients and has consulted nearly 300 family foundations, support organizations and public charities throughout the United States. He serves on the board of directors at First Foundation Inc. and on several nonprofit organizations. He is also the co-founder of National Philanthropy Day. “Doug has been a CureDuchenne Champion from the beginning,” said Debra Miller. “Ten years ago, when we talked about our vision for CureDuchenne, Doug took us under his wing and helped us get started. When we wanted to invest in a small biotech company, Doug embraced our vision and even had a name for what we were doing…venture philanthropy. Ten years later, CureDuchenne has successfully completed that venture philanthropy project and is able to apply the gain to future research.” Guests were treated to a special menu designed by Chef Jamie Gwen, a celebrity chef, certified sommelier, lifestyle expert and four-time cookbook author who has been featured on television, on the radio and in print from coast-to-coast for more than a decade. Gwen hosts a weekly syndicated radio show that can be heard every Sunday on 70 radio stations across the country and in Southern California on KFWB News Talk 980. Gwen recently won the Food Network’s new show “Cutthroat Kitchen.” CureDuchenne founders, Paul and Debra Miller, and their 17-year-old son Hawken, who lives with the Duchenne, welcomed guests. Hawken gave a moving speech where he thanked all CureDuchenne supporters, spokespeople and his parents for doing everything they can to find a cure to help him and all 300,000 boys who live with Duchenne. Hawken recognized Tyler Armstrong, 10, a CureDuchenne champion who has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Aconcagua to help raise awareness and money to help boys with Duchenne. Sarah Burgess, singer-songwriter and contestant of the sixth season of American Idol, shared her story about her 7-year-old brother Jacob who lives with Duchenne. Burgess also sang “Run Away,” a song she wrote for CureDuchenne and all boys with Duchenne. All proceeds of “Run Away’’ are donated to CureDuchenne. “Celebrating CureDuchenne’s 10-year anniversary is bittersweet: 10 is such a scary number for a child with Duchenne – that is when they could start losing their ability to walk,” said Burgess. “Jacob loves life and the simple pleasures it allows, and since I can’t give him my healthy muscles, I have given him my stubborn determination of doing all I can to help aid in finding a cure for Duchenne.” The evening included a silent and live auction, live musical performance and after hours party. CureDuchenne is a national nonprofit organization located in Newport Beach, Calif., dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne, the most common and most lethal form of muscular dystrophy. As the leading genetic killer of young boys, Duchenne affects more than 300,000 boys worldwide. CureDuchenne has garnered international attention for its efforts to raise funds and awareness for Duchenne through venture philanthropy. For more information visit http:// www.cureduchenne.org/.

Simple steps to paint like a pro T h e d i ff e r e n c e b e t w e e n a professional paint job and a do-ityourself job that looks like a pro painted it is surprisingly simple. As the old adage goes, the devil’s in the details. If you want that professional look while maintaining your DIY pride - and checkbook - take the time and effort to pay attention to often overlooked details. Step-by-step prep Prepping is vital so make sure to cover, tape and protect. That way you’ll be able to place furniture and accents where you want them, and not where you need them to cover the paint spill in the corner. This will give the space a polished look you’ll enjoy. Move furniture and other items out of the room if at all possible. If not, be sure to completely cover and secure the items to fend off spills and spatters. Opt for a canvas drop cloth instead of a one-time plastic covering. Canvas is extremely durable and will lie flat, preventing any unforeseen tripping or rips that may expose flooring and furniture. Chances are this will not be the last painting project you do so it’s well worth the investment. Use painter’s tape to protect woodwork like door frames, window

frames and moldings, and remove electric fixture covers and plates. Don’t forget the door knobs or cabinet pulls. Use small plastic bags to cover them and secure with painter’s tape if you can’t remove them entirely. After you’ve read the newspaper, save a few sections to use during the painting process. Should you run into any issues of stray paint, use the absorbent newspaper to soak up unwanted drops. Finally, gather rollers, brushes, paint and trays, and place them on their own drop cloth in an easily accessible area. Focus on the details A wide open wall is a blank canvas to DIY painters. But before you let the color flow, follow the painting process practiced by professionals. To start, look for areas that, if omitted, will surely draw negative attention and make your room look unfinished. These are items such as baseboards, trim, chair rails, molding and doors, as well as the interior of door and window frames. These finishing touches tend to be on a smaller scale, so you’ll want to use a compact tool that gives you more control. Try a mini paint roller such as Purdy’s Wire Mini-Roller. The 4-inch and 6 1/2-inch sizes allow you

to cover those hard-toreach or small areas with a smooth look. Wrap up the room It is best to paint any trim before tackling the walls. Start with the baseboards and paint around the room in one direction, paying careful attention not to miss any areas. Next, paint any window trim, door trim and crown molding. Be sure to remove painter’s tape before the paint dries for a cleaner line. When you’re ready for the walls, start painting from the top and work your way down the wall. As you get close to where your ceiling meets the wall or where the wall meets trim, take your time, and don’t feel the need to paint right up to the edge with a large roller. This is another area where a mini- rollers work well. Before putting all your furniture back and paint cans away, take one last look around. Perhaps you have fixtures or furniture that could use a touch-up. You can take this moment

to carry your color scheme throughout the room and add new life to mirrors or picture frames. You can paint like a pro. From project start to finish, take the time to prep and focus on the details. And when your friends and family ask for the name and number of the contractor you used, it’s up to you what you share.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Decked out from coast to coast: Top outdoor living trends for 2014 From genteel porches in the East to sleek, seaside balconies in the West, the popularity of outdoor living spaces is poised for significant growth from coast to coast with industry analysts predicting it will be a $5.7 billion market by 2016. Reinforcing these projections, 63 percent of architects cite an outdoor living space as the most popular “special function room” in housing construction, according to the American Institute of Architects. What’s more, the-Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association reports that homebuilders list decks among the top three features most requested with new home buys.

“Decks and porches are now considered true extensions of a home’s living space,” says Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of high-performance wood-alternative decking and railing. “People are showing increased interest in maximizing the function, comfort and personalization of their outdoor spaces and are realizing that it’s far more economical to expand their living space outside than to enlarge or renovate their home’s interior.” As planning and preparation for the 2014 outdoor living season begins, the experts at Trex offer a glimpse into the national trends that will be emerging outside homes across America in 2014. Size matters The biggest trend in decks right now is the increase in square footage. Gone are the days of the 20-by-10-foot rectangle with just enough room for a

grill and some patio furniture. Today’s decks are expanding both horizontally and vertically. Demand for decks with multiple tiers is increasing, as are requests to finish the space below an elevated deck. Thinking outside the box When it comes to deck designs, today’s homeowners also are thinking way outside the box and customizing nearly every aspect of their outdoor living spaces. Remodelers and architects report increased interest in pergolas and walls to define different functional areas and create privacy, as well as integrated features like built-in benches, planter boxes and storage. Similarly, consumer interest in accessories such as deck lighting, ornamental post caps and decorative balusters also is on the rise. “We are seeing a lot more mixing of materials,” reports Zambanini. “Contractors and consumers alike are creating highly customized deck designs combining two or more decking shades and also mixing materials such as composite railings in white with contrasting black aluminum balusters. Our product offering allows for more than 1,200 different design combinations so there truly is something for every taste

and lifestyle.” High-performance, low maintenance In addition to design aesthetics, homeowners across the country are increasingly concerned with performance. Specifically, they want materials that allow them to spend more time enjoying their outdoor living space rather than maintaining it. This motivation has contributed to the continued innovation and popularity of composite decking and railing. Unlike wood or even traditional composites, high-performance wood alternatives resist fading, staining, scratching and mold - and won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter. Upkeep is hassle-free and requires no sanding, staining or painting. Food and drink spills wash off easily with just soap and water. Sustainability Composite decking also responds to another growing trend among U.S. homeowners - interest in sustainable, eco-friendly building materials. “High-performance decking provides the look and feel of real wood, but without the environmental impact, making it an ideal choice for today’s eco-conscious consumers,” notes Zambanini.
