Decking Season is HERE!

As the frost melts away and spring whispers its arrival in the Boston area, homeowners often set their sights on refreshing their outdoor spaces. What better way to embrace the warmer months than by crafting a backyard oasis? Enter the ever-popular deck – a perfect extension of your living area, inviting the outdoors in and creating a space for relaxation, entertaining, and enjoying the scenic beauty of Massachusetts.

Boston's Temperamental Embrace:

Let's address the elephant in the room – New England weather. Boston boasts four distinct seasons, each bringing its own set of challenges. The very reason you crave that perfect outdoor space also necessitates careful consideration. Here's the truth: harsh winters and hot, humid summers can wreak havoc on your deck, especially if not built with weather resistance in mind.

Choosing the Right Material:

Traditionally, wood has been the go-to choice for decking. However, with the knowledge of Boston's climate, it's crucial to understand that wood requires consistent maintenance. Regular staining and sealing are essential to prevent warping, rotting, and the growth of pesky mold.

Beyond Wood: Exploring Other Options:

Thankfully, innovation has provided homeowners with a wider array of choices. Here are some popular alternatives:

  • Composite Decking: This combines wood fibers with plastic polymers, offering the aesthetic warmth of wood with superior weather resistance.

  • Vinyl Decking: Known for its affordability and durability, vinyl requires minimal maintenance but may not offer the same aesthetic appeal as wood.

  • Treated Lumber: Pressure-treated lumber offers improved resistance to rot and insects compared to regular wood, but still requires staining and sealing.

Deck Builders: Your Partners in Creation:

Building a deck involves more than just hammering boards together. Consulting a professional deck builder ensures proper construction techniques, adherence to building codes, and the use of high-quality materials that can withstand the elements.
