Ideas for Using Your Deck Year-Round
If you’re worried about not getting the most out of your outdoor living space during the colder New England months, don’t fret. SEAL-A-DECK wants you to know that you can use your deck year-round. Although we all picture enjoying our decks on a beautiful sunny day, you can spend time making memories regardless of the weather. Here are our tips for enjoying your outdoor living space in any season no matter the forecast.
Beating the Heat
A deck is a great place to spend your summer months. With or without a pool, you can enjoy many summer days with comfort. The first thing you should focus on for optimal use is shade. There are many ways in which you can achieve this, such as umbrellas, movable shades, awnings, and canopies. There is surely one option SEAL-A-DECK can provide for your deck that will fit your aesthetic, needs, and budget. Another way to beat the heat is with an outdoor fan. These can be easily installed on any deck area that has a roof. This will surely make it easier to maintain comfort even on the hottest of days.
Enjoying Windy and Rainy Days
Even during stormy and windy times of the year, you can certainly get use out of your deck. To stay dry, we suggest installing a roof if you don’t already have one. These can even be retractable if you worry about missing the ability to enjoy the sunshine. Once you have at least an awning in place you can install curtains to help keep the wind at bay. Curtains can also be made out of vinyl to keep the most rain and wind from disturbing you on the deck. You can retract them or completely remove them when they are not in use.
You don’t have to lose out on your outdoor living space when it’s cold out. If you enjoy using your deck, SEAL-A-DECK can help you make it comfortable even on snowy days. There are options for deck propane heaters that, if used safely, can be quite suitable for a Massachusetts winter. Another one of our favorite ways to keep warm on a deck is with a fire pit or fireplace. This option may not be obvious to most homeowners, but they are popular and safe for use. At our design meeting, we can walk through your deck space and determine if the structure can bear the weight of a fireplace. If not, the heater option is often better. We will work with you to make the best choice for your specific needs.
Not only can we set you up for using your deck no matter the weather, but our crews also work year-round.
