Planning is the first step in any home improvement project, and installing a new deck is no different.

With careful planning, you can create a new deck that will add value to your home and provide years of enjoyment.

Installing the Deck

If you are planning on installing a new deck in your Life Fitness F3, there are a few things you will need to do in order to properly install it. First, you will need to remove the old deck. To do this, you will need to unscrew the four bolts that hold it in place. Next, you will need to remove the two screws that hold the belt in place. After that, you will be able to slide the old deck out and replace it with the new one.

Finishing the Deck

In order to finish the deck, you will need to obtain the following materials: screws, washers, sandpaper, and paint or deck stain. Begin by sanding down the entire surface of the deck. Once the surface is smooth, apply a coat of paint or deck stain evenly across the surface. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for best results. Finally, attach the screws and washers to secure the decking in place.
