Backyard Getaway: Envisioning Your Dream Outdoor Deck
Having an outdoor deck is pure bliss in any season but especially the late summer and fall when temperatures are cool enough for everyone to enjoy.
Emerge from hibernation, enjoy the spring bloom, sunbathe and BBQ in summer, and sip hot cider in fall.
So, what’s your dream deck?
The first step to building your outdoor oasis is deciding on a material. The four main options you’ll want to consider are:
Our Decking By Carl’s team can further educate you on the benefits and styles of each solution.
Your deck is going to get a lot of use, as your family and friends can come and enjoy the outdoors more comfortably now along with you. The deck is also going to take a beating from New Jersey’s full spectrum of weather, from severe summer storms and flooding to snow, sleet and ice.
To minimize wear and tear, it’s important to make sure your contractor uses materials from trusted manufacturers. Likewise, the contractor should not simply build the deck, but rather, engineer it so that it’s built to last.
This is the fun part. As your deck begins to take shape, you’ll want to complement it with different functional and aesthetic elements, such as:
- Lighting fixtures and accents
- Railings and staircases
- Seating options
- Built-in flower boxes
- Additional seating that doubles as storage solutions
At this point, you’re probably picturing yourself lounging on a hot July day – drink in hand, food on grill, favorite people all around. So what are you waiting for?
