Outdoor Living Inspiration
Oregonians can’t let a little rain dampen their outdoor entertaining experiences. Here in Salem, we adjust as needed to make good use of our homes and outdoor living space!
Decks, patios, pergolas, and gazebos are great additions to your home. A deck expands your options for gathering places when you have friends and family come to visit. Even in preparation for the winter holiday season, there’s no reason deck space needs to be off limits.
- Add a permanent or retractable cover.
- Install a kitchen space with a grill and counter top.
- Purchase a deck-safe gas fire pit. (Marshmallow roasting is year-round fun!)
- Consider seating options like built-in benches with storage for cushions.
- Drape strings of outdoor lighting.
- Add permanent light fixtures to posts.
- Hang a privacy/weather barrier as a temporary wall.
- Furnish a gas pyramid patio heater for extra warmth.
- Lay out a large outdoor rug for nonslip safety.
- Provide a basket of cozy blankets for those die-hard outdoor enthusiasts!
How about installing an outdoor TV screen for fall and winter sport viewing. You can keep an eye on the big game while grilling up those burgers or chicken wings!
Of course, there will always be exceptions for gathering outdoors. Who wants to be outside in a wind storm or a torrential downpour? Most winter days in the Salem, Oregon area are pretty mild so they should be enjoyed! For great deck inspiration, check out our Decks and Patios Pinterest board to see samples of our ten tips.
The important thing to remember when it comes time to repair or replace a deck is that the structure needs to be safe! Standards for deck construction are critical to follow so you will have a secure, enjoyable, and beautiful outdoor space for years to come! A permit may be required if you are adding electrical options, gas appliances, or have a deck that exceeds heights standards. Contractors like 3Rs Construction can manage a project so that it is safe and built to code. The added space will not only be fun to use, it will add value to the home you have invested in.
Whether you need to start from scratch with a brand new deck, repair an existing one, or replace an old deck, 3Rs Construction Management LLC is the experienced contractor you you can trust to complete your deck project.
