Decks – an Extension of Your Home
June 2, 2017
How many rooms does your house have? What if I told you that you could increase that number and create an extension to your home just by caring for and properly maintaining your deck and patio area? There are many styles of outdoor furnishing, accent pieces and lighting options out there from which to choose to add square footage to your home. With annual maintenance and clever accessorizing, your patio or deck could become an outdoor room where you can entertain, relax or enjoy a meal.
What would you need to do to get your deck or patio area “entertainment ready?” Let’s take a look at some of the trends on making your backyard an extension of your home, as well as what Jerry Enos Painting can do to help you get that extra square footage during the warmer months.
- Deck or Patio Restoration – Before you start thinking about an expensive re-design of your outdoor area consider restoring the wood or having a professional power washing to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. Jerry Enos Painting can repair, clean, and refinish your outdoor deck to like-new condition so you can spend the warm months enjoying the outdoors instead of avoiding splinters and warped boards. Depending upon your specific needs, we can strip the wood to reveal the unsullied wood beneath and then seal it with a high quality clear or tarnished coating. If repair is not needed we can power wash to clean up the dirt and grime that probably settled in during the snowy months. Power washing is also a great idea for brick pavers on your patio!
- Furnishings – Depending on your personal tastes, homeowners can create a cozy sitting area around a fire pit or al fresco dining area. There are hundreds of styles of furnishings to choose from including sectionals, love seats, swings, hammocks and the list goes on and on. Choose the pattern and colors you love with outdoor carpeting and pillows to match!
- Lighting – From twinkle lighting to full landscape lighting, your backyard room can be illuminated to the level of your needs. Choose from safety lighting around your pool or garden to mood lighting around the conversation areas. The choices are endless.
- All the Bells and Whistles – Once you have your deck and patio properly maintained and furnishings and lighting chosen, now you can go crazy with outdoor sound, a movie screen, an outdoor bar, or maybe a hot tub to work out all those aches and pains of the day.
