Spring is sweeping across the country, and before long you’ll be enjoying balmy summer evenings in your backyard. Now’s the time to upgrade your outdoor living space.
Home improvement spending across the U.S. has risen dramatically. Since the 2008 financial collapse, the industry has been on a steady recovery, and Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies predicts this growth will continue through 2014. Already, home improvement spending is estimated at $144.7 billion, up from $127 billion this time last year. That kind of cash brings outdoor renovations in line with bathroom and kitchen remodeling. It seems everyone agrees: the time to build the deck of your dreams is now, and AdvantageLumber.com is ready to help.
If you’re looking to build a new deck or patio from scratch, think twice before using cheap pressure treated or unreliable composites. Genuine hardwoods such as Cumaru or Tigerwood give you both a richer look and a more durable structure.
Or maybe you just want to refresh the look of your current patio. If you’re tired of grilling steaks on an old concrete slab, consider Advantage Deck Tiles™. They come in a variety of species and sizes, and can be installed in a matter of hours.
Some new deck furniture can also go a long way in transforming your backyard. Gone are the days of rickety folding chairs, however; homeowners are looking for something with a little more class. You can buy outdoor furniture from one of the many retailers, or you can make your own. Exotic hardwood can be used to make beautiful, sturdy chairs and benches. Get creative! Advantage Deck Tiles™ can even be repurposed into a gorgeous end table. AdvantageLumber.com offers several how-to guides to spur your imagination.
Get started now, and you’ll have an outdoor space you can love all summer long. Now’s the time; what are you waiting for?
