If your deck is past its prime and becoming a safety concern, autumn is the perfect time to give it a much-needed makeover.
There are several reasons why the fall months are ideal for redoing your outdoor living space. Additionally, the refurbishing process is the perfect time to add features you wish your deck had such as a pergola for shade and style or have it enclosed for year-round enjoyment.
Give Your Deck Some Tender Loving Care with Fall Repairs!
Summer leaves us with cherished memories of backyard barbecues, pool parties, and romantic evenings. However, all these fun times accumulate over the years and leave decks looking old and tired.
The following reasons explain why deck repair in Kansas City is best done when the leaves begin to fall.
Cool temperatures make deck remodeling a breeze. Kansas City homeowners are lucky to have mild autumn days with chilly nights that aren’t yet frosty. This combination is perfect for completing deck repairs.
When the daytime temps are between 55 and 70-degrees, rehabbing a deck is no sweat! Furthermore, the lower heat index is gentle on new wood since it allows it to retain its natural moisture where high heat will bake the wood dry. Cooler temperatures are also ideal for staining and painting the deck.
Clear days and low humidity are a deck’s best friends. Kansas City gets less than an inch of rain in the fall. These dry conditions make deck repairs quick and easy because work isn’t delayed by wet weather.
Moisture and humidity cause wood to swell, which creates numerous problems when trying to set the decking boards. Dry conditions make it easy to finish the deck by sealing it with stain or paint because rain hasn’t had a chance to soak into the fresh, unblemished wood.
Fall repairs won’t spoil summertime fun. In the fall, the school’s back in session, and the daytime heat has been replaced with chilly breezes. Our outdoor living spaces still beckon to us during the off-season, just not as often. This is why it’s the best time to revamp your Kansas City deck, and even add some features you’ve been dreaming about such as a fire pit to enjoy when winter arrives and the snow is falling—or extend your decking to make room for a spa!
Autumn gets Goldilocks’ Seal of Approval for deck repair in Kansas City!
If the three bears needed to redo their Kansas City deck, Goldilocks would recommend the fall season because it’s not too hot, not too cold, and not too wet. Any other time of year presents atmospheric conditions that aren’t conducive for proper deck repairs. Winter is too cold and frosty. Springtime is too rainy. And summer is the worst time to do deck repairs. Not only are the days scorching hot, but the construction gets in the way of everyone enjoying everything the deck has to offer.
Plus, once we roll back the clocks in November to close out daylight savings time, repairs can begin earlier in the morning. Before you know it, your outdoor living space is ready for holiday decorations and festive celebrations!
