You’ll want to take into account the changing of seasons and how that might potentially affect your deck design in the long run.

When choosing to build out your dream deck, you’ll want to take into account the changing of seasons and how that might potentially affect your deck design in the long run. Whether you’re planning on throwing barbeques all summer long or looking to host cozy nights under the stars in the fall with friends, it’s essential to design your deck in a way that’ll ensure it lasts year after year. At Fisher Lumber, we pride ourselves in supplying high-quality decking materials to homeowners and professional builders looking to spruce up their backyards. Here’s a few top tips that can help ensure your deck will last no matter what season.

Deck Design: Opt for Composite Deck Material for Your Deck 

There are many perks to implementing composite deck material into your deck design over traditional wood. In many circumstances, composite decking can often be more affordable than wood. In addition to affordability, composite decking is also insect-resistant, rot-resistant, and can easily be cleaned. When you compare composite decking to natural wood decking, it’s guaranteed to require less maintenance than traditional wood decking. Opting for composite decking material to build out your deck can save you money in the long run, and ensure that your deck can survive inclement weather conditions and natural elements.

Build a Pergola to Provide Partial Shade On Your Deck

Building a pergola or enclosed area on your composite deck can also help protect your deck during inclement weather conditions, especially if your pergola is composed of engineered lumber or composite materials, which we provide at Fisher Lumber. A pergola is a beautiful addition to any backyard decking and can be the perfect enclosed space to host outdoor dinners for your next family gathering, free of mosquitos! 

Choose Weather-Proofed Furniture

One of the biggest mistakes that a homeowner can make when investing in deck furniture is opting for furniture that isn’t weatherproofed or by neglecting to purchase cover protectors for any wood furniture that they buy. Comfortable furniture is essential to the overall enjoyment of your new deck! By investing in weather-resistant outdoor furniture, you can ensure that you have a go-to place to relax on your deck no matter what the season is.
