Dads Rock Giveaway #6: Thompson’s Water Seal Deck Care Kit (Now Closed)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

On to the next prize in our Dads Rock Giveaway Bash! If you have a deck at your home, this one is for you!
While I don’t personally have a deck now, I have fond memories of the deck in our childhood home. We did everything out there! Dancing, playing, eating, you name it, my three sisters and I loved being out on the deck! Come to think of it, it was a very frugal way to enjoy some family fun.

But after years of abuse enjoyment, it did not look so welcoming. I think it could have used a good cleaning and a stain, like this one I am giving away from Thompson’s Water Seal.

Since I don’t have a deck, my Mom will actually enjoy a nice surprise in the mail from Thompson’s very soon.  Since she was both mom and dad in our single-parent family, I think she deserves a Father’s Day gift, don’t you? :)

The Thompson’s Company offers a complete line of cleaners to remove a variety of contaminants from wood, concrete, and other surfaces.

Usage & Benefits

  • Remove dirt, mildew, algae and fungus stains
  • Removes mill glaze on new wood
  • Removes tannin bleed/stains and rust

    I just left my job to be home with my kids this summer. I would love to just enjoy watching them swim in the pool and play in the yard while relaxing on the deck.

  2. Jenn says

    We are in the process of buying a home that is not only large enough to entertain – but has a deck! So what will we enjoy about our deck? Finally having friends and family over to enjoy each others company and make memories! :)

  3. says

    Our deck turns into a playground for the kids. Lil Man likes to ride his Arctic Cat and tricycle on the deck. He also like to turn it into a speedway for his cars. Sunday afternoons turn into fun family time when we pull up a chair and visit in the cool mountain breeze.

  4. Sonia says

    love entertaining on the deck – nothing like drinking a glass of wine with friends as the sun sets

  5. Tricia says

    We really don’t use our deck. But, DH is getting a grill for fathers day so I think it will be getting more use!

  6. Alexandra says

    Oooh…we need some of this! Ours isn’t so much a deck as a back porch but in desperate need of lovin’. What I enjoy most is that we can still be outside when it’s raining lightly because it’s covered. It’s also our only shade in the back yard during the day because the sun hits the entire yard from morning until about 5pm!

  7. Stephanie Wade says

    I would love to enjoy my deck in anyway! Unfortunately the previous owner, who built it, didn’t do a good job and it’s terrible! We’d love to redo it!!

  8. Jessica M says

    During the day we use our deck for the kids…they have their playhouse and sand table out there. At night, we love to grill and eat on the deck. My husband and my deck would love this one. Thanks!

  9. Marianne says

    we have had our deck since last Summer.. my husband built it for me for my mother’s day and birthday during the summer.. we did not have long to enjoy it when he got done since fall was coming when he completed it.. but this year, it has been incredible to sit and have dinner on as a family.. we all love it!

  10. says

    my husband built our deck last fall so this spring is the first I’ve gotten to enjoy it. I love just sitting on the deck. I think I could sleep outside it is so peaceful to me.

  11. Susan says

    I love letting my son go out and play. The deck has no stairs so he can’t get away.

  12. Donna C says

    I love our deck because it allows our family to spend time together without interruptions. Grilling out or just hanging out on the deck means not being near the kitchen, tv, or computers. It means really good relaxing family time…which is usually hard to find these days!

  13. Angel S. says

    We love to sit outside in the ackyard in the summer. It is like an outside living room. Decks rock!

  14. Samantha says

    I enjoy sitting on my deck in the morning while having a cup of coffee, and enjoying the wildlife that we have in Maine.
    I especially enjoy having BBQ’s on it, and also relaxing on it after a long day.

  15. Brenda says

    I love eating all of the wonderful foods of summer (grilled chicken, sweet corn, bruschetta, BLTs, etc.) on our deck with my family.

  16. Crystal says

    We love grilling on our deck of course. However, my favorite time is just after the kids head to bed for the night and we set ourselves out on the deck and just enjoy the summertime!

  17. Suzanne Brown says

    Our deck is fairly private with a gazebo built in. It’s very parklike and peaceful setting out there in the evening. So nice to get away from the cares of the day.

  18. Katrina says

    Our home has a wonderful deck out front. We sit and watch the beautiful sunsets. It’s an older home and could use a good cleaning and sealing.

  19. Linda Senyk says

    I love having BBQ’S on the deck with our family and friends while the kids are playing and having fun.

  20. Maggie M. says

    We have a deck and this so needs to be done to it- lol. I love watching the kids play in the backyard from our deck! We can sneak out and watch them play and they do not see us! Love it!

  21. Jennifer Seitzinger says

    We are finally rebuilding our deck after 6 years of not having one. I can’t wait to sit outside on it.

  22. Karina House says

    Oh, if we had only taken the time to do this when we moved in, we might not need a new deck now! However, this will be a blessing for my mother – also both parents in our single-parent home after my father died. I agree; she deserves a father’s day present, too!

  23. terri says

    I subscribe. Our deck is the neighborhood gathering place and we love it! Neighbors stop by in the evening and the fellowship is fabulous! :)

  24. karen says

    Our deck at the beach is a wonderful place to sit , listen and observe God’s creations. Just love it.

  25. Amy Brewer says

    I like that my family can sit out on it and enjoy it. We have BBQs and enjoy reading out on the deck. My older girl loves to listen to her mp3 player on it while trying to get a nap in.

  26. Sam in AZ says

    We need to replace some wood and then stain so this would be a great help for our budget for the deck.

  27. jessica deardorff says


  28. Mrs. R. says

    We are grateful to the Lord for our deck making a fabulous extra “playroom” for several months of hte year!!

  29. AMY says

    We love eating dinner on our deck. The kids love that they don’t have to wash their hands when they’re done; they can just go play!

  30. Ashley McCourt says

    I love my deck because it allows me to enjoy our back yard without having to be in the grass with all the bugs!

  31. Tammy says

    I enjoy just sitting and relaxing, listening to the birds in the trees and the “humming” of the hummingbirds coming in to enjoy the feeders.

  32. nikki wilson says

    I love my deck, but it needs to be refinished terribly. My hubby and Dad built it the summer before my Dad passed. He has cancer and none of us knew, yet he was working in the 110 degree heat helping to build a deck and storage building before my twin daughters were born.

  33. LYNDA M says

    I enjoy sitting out on my deck in the evening and just listening to all the animal sounds and watching my kids play in the yard

  34. Adrienne S. says

    My favorite part of our deck is the wonderful gas grill that sits out on it!

  35. Susan says

    We don’t have a deck, but we do have a screened lanais that we enjoy spending evening on watching our grandchildren play out back

  36. Joy says

    We enjoy our deck most when we have family over to enjoy it with us! Thanks for the chance to win!

  37. Bonnie P says

    I enjoy our deck just for sitting in the sun and relaxing

  38. Heather Smith says

    I enjoy sitting on the deck and listening to the new baby birds tweeting. We have 3 nests that just hatched babies!

  39. Reagan says

    I enjoy sitting out at night with my husband talking after all the kids are in bed.

  40. Suz says

    Like you I don’t currently have a deck but have good memories of my parents’ and also my grandparents’… But I DO currently have plenty of wood (back stairs, fence, play set) that could use treatment !

  41. Janet Carpenter says

    I love sitting on the deck in the early morning listening to the birds and enjoying the freshness of morning.

  42. pixie13 says

    No deck but a fairly decent sized porch. I like to sit out on the porch in the evenig & listen to all the frogs

  43. Amanda A says

    I love having dinner outside! The winter is long here, so I enjoy every moment outside during the summer :)

  44. Julie says

    I love sitting outside eating a meal as a family, or enjoying quiet time together with my husband.

  45. Joy says

    I just enjoy the quiet especially at night w/ a bonfire going. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  46. staceyk says

    It brings so much more living space to your home. I like being able to eat outside and not have to sweep up the crumbs all the time.

  47. Shelly says

    I love sitting on the deck with family and friends and sharing the tales from our busy lives. :)

  48. Karen C. says

    We love to sit around the fire pit on the deck on a very cold night and roast marshmellows.
