YES!!! We haven't done anything on our house in weeks, but this past week we were able to put some hours towards our decking and it looks GOOD. We read that it's really important to waterproof the decking before going down. both sides. We also got a steal of a deal on the wood, over half off, because it had some sticker marks on it that you can't even see now that it has been waterproofed. so hooray. thanks kgb for letting us borrow your decking gun, it rocks the house.
