Father’s Day is less than two weeks away. To help celebrate Father’s Day, we are giving away two $50 gift cards to a restaurant of the winners’ choice. To enter, go to our Facebook page for Parr Lumber and/or Parr Cabinet. One winner will be randomly selected for each Facebook page. You can enter both sweepstakes. The deadline to enter is June 15th (Father’s Day).
The summer is nearly here and it’s time to refinish the deck to have it ready for the upcoming evenings of outdoor entertaining. The key for your wood deck is to do the correct preparation before you start. If you have an older wood deck, it probably looks pretty dull and grey. To get it back to its correct color, you will need to clean and brighten it first. If you put the new stain on an old, unclean board it will look splotchy and uneven. The good news is that you can clean and brighten your deck in just one day.
Spring is the time for building. People are getting to work on new decks, fences and raised beds. But before you start you should make sure you are getting the right wood for the job.
There is nothing like sitting in the garden during the summer and enjoying all the plants and wildlife around you. The problem is finding a nice and inexpensive bench to sit on when you are out in the garden. Have you ever consider building your own? Amber, the manager at our Albany yard, has a great idea that she decided to share with us. This one was pretty easy to build and it was cheap too. All you need are some cinder blocks, some 4×4’s, a little paint, some adhesive and some cushions.
We value your business and would like to invite you to one our customer appreciation BBQs. Check out our BBQ schedule below.
It’s the start of March Madness. 68 teams were selected (including the Oregon Ducks), but there can only be one winner at the end. Who will win it all? Tell us who you think will win the NCAA men’s basketball, and you could win either a $100 gift card or a Drift Creek collegiate apparel item (winner’s choice). Note: you don’t need to correctly pick the right team to win. The winner will be randomly selected via random.org.
