Summer is upon us, which means your deck will see lots of use. However, it will likely need some updating first. Fortunately, there are many ways to make your deck ready for the warm months ahead. Eagle Creek Siding, LLC shares four tips to keep in mind.
1. Install a pergola. A pergola can turn your exposed deck into a cozy outdoor room. It provides a good amount of shade through its angled slats while still allowing you to enjoy the sun. If you need a new deck, Eagle Creek Siding can build a pergola at the same time.
2. Apply stain to your deck. Restaining your deck will give it a brand-new look. Not only that, doing so helps protect the material against rot and water damage. Before restaining, make sure to clean the deck surfaces using a power washer. Wait for it to dry before applying the stain.
3. Add color. Make sure your deck gives off some summer vibes with touches of color. Instead of plain white lawn chairs, go for fun and colorful furniture that will make your deck pop. Don’t be afraid to choose bright colors to make your outdoor space look more inviting.
4. Provide outdoor lighting. The setting sun doesn’t mean it is time to pack up and go back indoors. Extend your time with friends and family with adequate outdoor lighting. Your deck should be easy to navigate, even at night. Be sure to provide extra light at the stairs to prevent accidents.
