4 Reasons Why Having an Outdoor Deck is Great in the Fall -

Autumn is here, and the air is already beginning to smell like snow. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and all the coffee chains are selling pumpkin spice lattes. How are you enjoying this magnificent seasons? Running through corn mazes, carving pumpkins and raking leaves? Could it be that you’re enjoying your outdoor deck more than ever during these magical fall months? Here are four big reasons why people love outdoor decks in the fall.

1. You’re outside, but close to the heat!

When you’re hanging out with the family or entertaining guests on a chilly autumn evening, one of the great luxuries of an outdoor deck is that you can enjoy the crisp air while being easily in reach of your home amenities — such as the kitchen and bathroom! The ability to spend time outdoors, yet have all the comforts of home at your fingertips, is priceless when the leaves start to change.

2. You can have a fire

A lot of people don’t know this, but you can have a fire on your outdoor deck. Well, it actually depends on your local laws and ordinances. But many people are able to safely have a campfire on their deck, whether it’s with a fire bowl or a built-in outdoor fireplace. Built-ins are becoming more popular, since campfires are great in every season. But having a cozy fire while you enjoy the autumn evenings can be an amazing thing.

3. The moon and stars are bright this time of year

Autumn months are the best for stargazing — at least that’s what a lot of people say. Your outdoor deck provides a convenient viewing platform, whether you’re hanging out all night, or just stepping out for a quick look and some fresh air. The transitional space between your indoor and outdoor environments is a useful thing to have throughout the four seasons.

4. You don’t have to get your shoes muddy

Autumn usually brings with it a lot of mud and rain. Granted, your outdoor deck will get dirty and need to be cleaned occasionally, but compared to the wet ground out there, it’s nothing at all. Being able to enjoy a bit of the outdoors without getting your shoes muddy is a useful advantage as the weather starts to get colder and more unpredictable.

Who to call for the best outdoor deck

Building an outdoor deck takes skill and experience, but with the right planning and the right company, it’s possible to get going quickly. Even though winter is already approaching, a new deck installation or resurfacing project is not out of the question! There’s still time to enhance your enjoyment of those crisp autumn nights, and if you have that built-in fireplace, you can even sit out and enjoy the winter stars as well. Come spring, your new deck will be ready to go.

“Deck Guardian Team did a good and pleasant job to give us a professional service and a beautiful new deck, without replacing it. We love the color and the way it feels like. Highly recommended!”

Kathryn Barchi from Piscataway, NJ

“My husband and I had recently moved into a new home and quite quickly we learned of so many things that both us and the home inspector missed prior to the purchase; the deck being one huge item. We quite desperately wanted to use our deck and know that it was safe for us, our kids, our pups, and our guests, which in the original state, was definitely not the case. Deck Guardian to the rescue! The Deck Guardian team, from the free estimate to the point of project close, were quite wonderful to work with entirely. They even pointed out additional things we had missed with regards to the safety of our deck. Of course, best of all, the Deck Guardian team was able to work within our budget, while giving us back our deck with a new lease on life. Deck Guardian far exceeded our expectations and for that, my husband and I can not thank them enough!!!”
