In this month’s issue you will find that WD-40 is proudly announcing the winner of this year’s Rebuilding Together Tradesperson of the Year. The award, as you will read, is given to an individual who was nominated for giving back to his community.

The Carey Brothers have supported Rebuilding Together for over 20 years and have continually contributed our time, tools, funds and media assets to this wonderful organization.  Rebuilding Together doesn’t give handouts. They help individuals who have worked their whole lives, paid for their homes, sent their children to college and then, on fixed incomes, have become poverty stricken by inflation.

We know that our listeners and readers have a special place in their heart for the charity of their choice and we want to applaud those of you who work so hard to make your community, your state and our nation; a better place to live. We may not know your name, but someone knows your work is important.

Easy deck maintenance made easier

There's no such thing as a completely maintenance free deck, but you can practically ignore redwood and it will still look great and retain its structural integrity for years – just keep it clean and free of debris and a redwood deck will take on a distinctive gray look over time while giving you classic durability.

Keeping your redwood deck looking like new is easy, too. Redwood has long been a favorite of professionals and families that appreciate finer outdoor living in part because it takes a finish beautifully and can be returned to its natural warm look with very little effort. A brush and a hose are about the only tools you need.
