Did you know that fall and winter seasons are a good time to initiate your outdoor living projects?

Naturally, many people think of building outdoor projects in the late spring and summer when the weather is nice and they want to get outside. Sometimes it can be challenging to get a good contractor during this time.

If you missed your opportunity this summer, don’t despair. Right now is a great time to hire Custom Fence and Masonry to get things in place for next year. Projects like outdoor kitchens, decks, covered areas, fireplaces and fire pits are not weather sensitive. Like many wood and masonry projects, they can be completed in any season, and if you begin now, you will have the time to improve and enjoy your living space. Call for a free consultation!

Our Redmond client Doug Myers couldn’t be happier with his outdoor “Man Cave” (pictured above) constructed by Custom Fence and Masonry. The covered patio is outfitted for year-round use and will likely be the popular place for many future gatherings of friends and family.

Featuring a sandblasted, colored concrete patio and benches, the space has an outdoor kitchen with barbeque, smoker, refrigerator and a sink with hot and cold running water. When the weather turns cooler, the gas fireplace and fire pit will supplement infrared heaters. A 74-inch wide screen TV and water feature with flame round out the impressive outdoor living area.

Time to Evaluate the Condition of Your Outdoor Living Space

spring driveway maintenanceNow that more daylight and milder temperatures signal warmer weather, homeowners get outside and begin to assess just how much spring maintenance work might be ahead.

Sometimes this leads to new possibilities for decks, patios, walkways and driveways. Outdoor surfaces require seasonal maintenance and over time, weather takes its toll. This year might be the time to increase your personal enjoyment of the beautiful Northwest seasons ahead by improving your outdoor space.

As you walk around your property this month, here are some thoughts to spark your thinking:

Decks
On the average, a deck has a life of 10-15 years. Evaluate whether the deck frame is sound. Is there any dry rot to repair? If your deck boards and handrails are looking their age, replacing and/or resurfacing could be in order. New handrails can change the whole look of a deck.

If starting over is the decision, a tear down makes room for designing something new, maybe larger, with room for a covered area or outdoor kitchen?  Our decks are built to last. All underpinning is built with pressure treated lumber and surfaces from renewable resources. We recommend several grades of cedar and hardwood decking materials

Driveways, Walkways and Patios
The life of your driveway or patio depends on its surface, how much it gets used, how it was installed and whether it has been maintained.  A driveway or patio may last an average of 12-50 years if treated well. Is the surface giving way to tree roots? Are bricks cracked or missing?

High quality materials provide durable and long-lasting patios, driveways and walkways. Proper installation is a key factor on our checklist.  For example, we use over four inches of concrete in our patio installations to extend the life of your investment.

If you are looking for options, good quality concrete and brick or cobblestone pavers offer a wide variety of elegant design options and improve both the exterior appearance and value of your home.

How much more would you enjoy your deck or patio if it were exactly what you envision? We are here to help you make that dream a reality.

Spring Hardscape Care

Stewart 10

This time of year, it’s a good idea to think about the maintenance of your hardscape: concrete, pavers, stone and retaining walls.

It is important that you maintain your hardscape.

The gloomy Northwest days cause moss and mildew to show up on all of your hardscape. This growth can cause premature aging and damage to the surfaces.

A good cleaning and possible sealing where applicable can help to protect and prolong their useful life. Our acid rains can cause the loss of texture and color of stamped concrete, therefore the loss of the original beauty of the product.

There are many companies that provide this service. Give one a call today and protect your investment. It will enhance the beauty of your home and its hardscape!
