Winter has blanketed Kansas City and much of the Midwest in ice and snow. We’ve seen double-digit snow accumulation twice in the last week. Some folks think that’s pretty strange. Well, we remember seeing an awful lot of snow around the Midwest when we were growing up, so maybe this isn’t as strange as some folks are making it out to be. Of course, we haven’t been thrilled about the amount of snow shoveling we’ve been doing lately, but it’s one of those things that comes with home ownership. Nevertheless, winter is here and it’s snowy and slick outside, so it may be difficult for some folks to think about relaxing on their back deck, sipping from a glass of iced tea, and watching the kids and the dogs play in the green grass in the yard. But, believe it or not, that’s exactly what you might want to think about at this point in time. It’ll take your mind off the four-foot snowdrift up against the front door.
Yes, home ownership is a wonderful thing. Nothing beats having a place of your own – especially when your home has an expansive green lawn in the summertime. There’s a lot to be said for how relaxing it can be to sit around in the backyard on your days off. The American back yard is a place for barbecues, playing catch, lighting sparklers on the Fourth of July, catching lightning bugs, and hanging out with family and friends. Memories are made in the backyard – ones that span the generations and last a lifetime. So, when it comes to creating that backyard oasis of relaxation and fun, you owe it to yourself and your family to build a quality deck that will fit both your lifestyle and your budget.
Decks come in all sizes and materials. You can have a natural wood deck (traditional, beautiful) or one that’s maintenance free (made from UV stabilized high impact rigid PVC). In fact, you can build just about anything you can imagine in your backyard (as long as your HOA will approve it!). Here at Continental Siding in Kansas City, we’ve made a name for ourselves for quality siding products and expert installation. But we’ve also been the go-to guys for decks, exterior shutters, fencing, awnings, aluminum railings, and stone veneer. In fact, if there’s something you’ve dreamed up for your home or back yard, it’s a fair bet that Continental Siding can help you make it come true.
Your outdoor spaces, especially in the back yard, are a prime place for the creation of the perfect relaxation space. If your yard is open and you’d like a little privacy, you can put in a fence and take back the yard for yourself. Looking for a Cape Cod style fence? Easily done. Thinking about something more modern? Maybe Steel Reinforced Fencing is best. And if you’re looking to make a dramatic improvement to your home, you might want to ask Continental Siding about a glass enclosed room, porch, or patio. After all, it’s your yard. Get what you want. Summer is coming fast, so it’s time to start thinking about your deck and patio needs.
