During the blistery, unpredictable, and sometimes bitter seasons of fall and winter, most homeowners believe that outdoor projects cannot be completed. Here, at Custom Decks, we build year-round! So which types of projects do we recommend you get done this time of year? First, the most obvious suggestion would be a toasty fire feature, to radiate warmth during those evenings when it’s not quite freezing, but not too warm! Fire features are not only excellent for their functionality, but they are also extremely visually appealing!
Everybody knows that just as quickly as the skies can dump mounds of snow, in almost an instant, the sun can come out and melt the frozen fluff away. For homeowners with wooden decks, this water damage causes peeling and flaking of paint, swelling and warping of planks, and sets the deck up for dry rot- which could cost a homeowner thousands each year just to repair! At Custom Decks, we highly recommend composite materials, like Trex®, to build a quality deck which will stand the test of time, and remain virtually maintenance free for decades to come!
Lastly, for homeowners who have cedar, redwood, or pine wood decks, a worthwhile option to protect your outdoor living space, is to build a roof over the deck. Not only does this offer protection from snow, rain, and hail- but it also offers relaxing, cool shade in the spring and summertime! At Custom Decks, we build our deck roofs with structural integrity, so that they can withstand the forces of nature, while blending in beautifully with the rest of your home.
