It is Spring and time to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of our home properties. You can enjoy comfort, convenience, and privacy with a home deck. This article will provide you information on how to create your dream outdoor living space.
When creating your dream outdoor living space, it should be very personal. To make your outdoor space personal, you need to be sure you do not overlook the level of privacy, the level of maintenance, the amount of sunlight you want for your deck and how much wind you want direct to your deck The following are a few ways to address these deck structural concerns:
When you have a deck, you want it to be a place to relax not an area of your home where the entire neighborhood can examine you and your property. You can enhance the privacy of your deck with railing, fencing or place landscaping décor around your deck design.
If you want a low maintenance deck, you will need to choose the appropriate material to make cleaning and refinishing easy. For example PVC coated composite decking, does not require high maintenance while pressure treated decking will need to be cleaned, brightened, and recoated every two years. A high maintenance material would be a cedar deck because it requires annual cleaning and sealing because of deck stain being used.
Degree of Sunlight On Deck
When picking the amounts of direct sunlight and shade you want for your deck, the decision should not be taken lightly. It will greatly impact your outdoor living space because sunlight or lack of sunlight can affect the level of maintenance you need to keep your deck in mint condition and also when you can use it to relax.
If your deck is hit constantly with sunlight, you may want to consider installing a pergola to shade the deck. This will help you stay comfortable and keep your deck and your skin from being severely damaged by direct sunlight.
Know The Direction Of The Prevailing Winds
Feeling a nice summer breeze is one of the pleasures of having a backyard deck but too much wind can be uncomfortable. You can create a nice breeze pattern for your deck by creating a windbreak in your deck design.
