5 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR VINYL DECK
Happy 2015! While you might be busy making personal resolutions to eat better, exercise more, etc., don’t forget that your home could use some resolutions too – especially since you spend most of your free time there. So, how about making some resolutions for your vinyl deck? Tuff Industries has some recommendations.
Declutter Your Vinyl Deck
Nothing feels more cathartic than getting rid of junk – clearing the outside to give you more space, more room to relax. You might have to wait until some of the snow clears (or things unfreeze) but when you’re ready, take a long look at the items on your deck and decide whether they really need to be there, or whether they can be moved or thrown out.
Commit to a Cleaner Vinyl Deck
It’s hard to enjoy the outdoors when you have to look at a dirty deck, so maybe it’s time to give your deck a good clean come spring. Soap and scrub – you’ll be amazed at the results.
Add a Feature to Your Deck
Perhaps your deck could use a focal point, something for people to gather around – such as a water fountain or fire pit. Even the smallest vinyl deck or vinyl balcony can benefits from a little extra décor, even if it’s flower pot on the patio table.
Expand a Small Vinyl Deck
Is this the year you’re finally going to get the deck you always wanted? Make your home complete with a new vinyl deck by expanding your small deck to the size you need for full enjoyment. Even just an extra few square feet can make all the difference between cramped quarters and the lap of luxury. Installing glass and vinyl deck railings can increase your enjoyment as well – letting you relax and enjoy the view.
Refresh an Old Vinyl Membrane
If the budget won’t stretch for a vinyl deck renovation, then the next best step is to install a new vinyl membrane. Not only will it look great, it will also protect the deck structure – which is vital – particularly if you have a vinyl roof deck and want to prevent water damage to your home.
While it may be a bit chilly to get started now, you can begin by checking out the Tufdek™ photo gallery of great vinyl decks, or talk to a qualified contractor about improving your vinyl deck so you and your family can enjoy it for many years to come.
