They don’t call it “Hot Lanta” for nothing… Atlanta, Georgia in early March and temperatures are already flirting with 80 degrees! The trending topic this week for the Atlanta Market on Twitter has included #patios, #decks, and #greenbeer, leading me to believe most of Atlanta has found a patio or deck on which to enjoy a cold beverage this week.
Aside from the social aspect of the warming temperatures, what other behavior does this weather seem to cause? Most people will tell you that they start thinking about or doing house and yard work.
I have been with EXOVATIONS® for ten years, and I can testify that each spring we have a rush of calls and inquiries about all sorts of spring projects, but our number one request is always about decks. In fact, we spend the winter like caged animals just waiting on these calls so we can get out and enjoy this sunshine with the rest of you. Many customers call about yearly maintenance like pressure washing, painting, and staining, and others just want to start over from the ground up with a brand new deck.
As a certified Atlanta deck contractor, we stay on top of new materials and technologies that allow us to expand our offerings and options. We work with quality product like those made by TREX Decking, who spent nearly four years testing their latest TREX Transcend decking products.
They listened to their past customers, current consumers, and potential customers to find out what it was that mattered most in their deck. Longevity, durability, low to no maintenance, curb appeal, warranty, risk of fading, risk of staining, and overall value were highly taken into consideration. The latest technologies have allowed TREX to present a product with an impeccable warranty to guarantee against fading and staining… so no worries for spilled ketchup, wine, or barbeque sauce during those Summer parties. Simply wash the spill off with soap water and it is gone. Never worry about rotting again. Transcend decking is a composite material with an outer shell covering three sides of the board, which is 2 to 3 times thicker than any competitive offerings. The underside of the board breathes to avoid the surface separation some competitors suffer.
Composite decks bring together the best qualities of wood and plastic to create a longer lasting alternative to wood. Plastic shields the wood from moisture and insect damage, preventing rotting and splintering. Wood protects the plastic from UV damage while providing a natural, attractive look and feel. However, not all composite decks are the same. The industry is riddled with inferior product that does not deliver the manufacturers’ durability claims. There is only one brand of engineered decking that EXOVATIONS® has found to have proven product quality and durability backed by a 25-year limited stain and fade warranty. TREX Transcend decking comes in seven beautiful colors and the lighting options are endless.
And whether you are improving an existing deck or building a new one, you should consider adding an under-deck roofing system. EXOVATIONS DeckBrella creates a clean, dry environment under your deck to expand your outdoor living space. Add a ceiling fan and exterior lighting, and you have a brand new entertaining space!
So don’t wait any longer to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather! EXOVATIONS is a certified Atlanta deck contractor, and we can help you make the most of your home’s outdoor living space this summer.
