5 Tips for Designing an All-Season Deck

It’s getting colder and weather conditions are changing. Do you have a deck that can handle the changes? An all-season deck is great for homeowners who want to enjoy their deck throughout the year. Whether it’s throwing a barbecue in the middle of July or roasting marshmallows during the month of February, here’s how you can design a deck that you can enjoy no matter the weather.

Opt for Composite Deck Material


Composite decking material is one of the most durable materials on the market. In the summer your deck will endure dirt, in the fall leaves will sit on top of it, the winter brings snow, and the spring is known for rain. Composite can withstand all of the elements. Not only can it withstand any element it encounters but it will also do so while preserving its good-as-new aesthetic.  


Partially Enclose Your Deck


You can enclose your deck so that things like rain and snow won’t stop you from having a good time. You can achieve this by either installing an awning or building a screened-in area. Working with a professional deck builder can help you determine the best type of enclosure for your deck. 


Find Weather-Proof Furniture 


One part of ensuring that you have an all-season deck is making sure that you have furniture to withstand the elements. The last thing you’ll want is to have your deck furniture fall apart. Consider getting weather-proof furniture like those from Trex. 


Provide Shade 


During the hotter months, you’ll want to stay cool while on the deck. Create some shade by installing an awning or pergola. Both of these are relatively easy to install with the help of a deck builder in York County and you’ll enjoy the cool breezes that are associated with these fixtures for years to come.


Create Warmth 


In the winter, the most important thing is warmth. A lot of people will opt to stay indoors, but not you. Luckily, you have a fire pit, a chiminea, strip heaters, or another heating device. If you have a partial enclosure, you also have the option of installing an HVAC system.
