Still curious? Here's even more about decks:
In the summer, one of the most important things that you can do with your deck is to add a bit of shade. You should consider purchasing some sort of umbrella, or a deck cover. With proper shade, you’ll be more likely and better able to spend more time on your deck. Depending on the layout of your deck, you may also consider finishing the area underneath it. Not only does this provide natural shade, it also offers a second unique space for outdoor gatherings.
If you don’t have the space or desire to add a patio beneath the deck, you can still make use of the space. For example, the space beneath your deck can be great for storage (lawn tools, pool equipment, additional outdoor seating, etc). Finally, you may want to consider adding some sort of privacy fence. Depending on where you live, you may not be able to experience the privacy that you’re looking for without some sort of barrier between yourself and the outside world. We service Inver Grove Heights MN and surrounding cities, providing them with the best decks and railings possible. As your deck contractor will tell you, the majority of decks can be modified to accommodate a privacy fence.
