PARKERSBURG, W.Va., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — When spring arrives, be ready to spruce up your home’s exterior and its outdoor living space. Invest family time to envision which projects would transform it into a more organized, inviting retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Do doors, door frames, porches/railings, gates, decks, patios and outbuildings need to be cleaned, repaired, repainted or replaced? Do you need more furniture or play equipment like cornhole boards?

Once a project list is made, visit your local Woodcraft store, go online at, or use a Woodcraft catalog and call 800 225-1153 to stock up on all the tools, materials and supplies you need. Woodcraft store employees can help with advice, technical support is available at 800 535-4486, and offers how-to articles and videos.
