It always sucks when you can’t spend a good time outside when the weather is nippy. But how about you design an all-season deck so you can have a good time out anytime?
Here’s how you can build a deck to stand all kinds of weather conditions.
- Opt for composite deck
Composite decking is durable; it can endure the summer heat, the dirt and fall leaves, the rain in spring, and the winter snow. Additionally, composite has an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
- Consider enclosing your deck partially
Do you want to enjoy your outdoors even when it’s raining? How about partially enclosing your deck, maybe using an awning or adding some screens?
You can consider working with a professional deck builder to help you determine the best enclosure for your deck.
- Go for weather-proof furniture
Ensuring you have an all-season deck makes sure your furniture doesn’t fall out in bad weather. There is plenty of weather-proof furniture available in most stores today, so swap your furniture.
- Add some shade
When summer hits, you’ll want to chill on your deck and still expect a relaxed atmosphere. The only way you can do that is by adding some shade. Consider adding a pergola for the shade.
- Create warmth for the winter season
Warmth is most important in the winter months. If you don’t want to stay indoors, you can consider adding a fire pit or other forms of heating features to your deck.
And just like that, you achieve an all-season deck.
