During the cold winter months in Maryland and Pennsylvania, you might worry that your deck is taking a beating from the snow, ice, and frigid temperatures. But have you ever wondered what the snow and ice are doing to your outdoor furniture?
Not all outdoor furniture is created equal, but there are some things you can do to protect your investment. Let’s look at some ways to protect your furniture as well as some benefits of Trex outdoor furniture.
Covering Your Furniture
Covering your outdoor furniture with high-quality, fitted covers is a great way to protect your investment. No matter what type of furniture you have, wood, metal, composite, or otherwise, a good cover is always a great idea. In the winter months, snow and ice aren’t the only things that can damage your furniture. De-icers are another problem for your furniture, as they can be very corrosive over time. A well-fitted furniture cover can help protect your furniture from snow, ice, and damaging chemicals.
Moving Your Furniture
If your deck is in a heavily wooded area, moving the furniture may be a good option. During snow and ice storms, branches may fall and land on your deck, potentially damaging your furniture. Moving furniture into a garage or storage shed is a great way to protect it from the elements. One downside to this, however, is that your furniture won’t be easily accessible should you want to sit out on your deck and enjoy the snowfall.
Replacing Your Furniture
If your outdoor furniture has seen better days you might consider replacing it. Trex outdoor furniture is a great option for many homeowners, as it can withstand environmental changes, harsh weather, and extreme temperatures. Trex outdoor furniture lasts longer than traditional furniture and holds up against damaging weather. While Trex outdoor furniture may be higher in price than other options such as wood or metal, it withstands the test of time, meaning you won’t have to replace it as often as other furniture.
