It’s still raining in the Portland area, but soon it will be decking season. This year is as good any to build the deck you always wanted. To help you get started, we’ve put together a short guide for you.
Yesterday was the first day of spring. Soon it will be time to fire up the grill and enjoy the outdoor. If you’re thinking about building a deck this year, then check out this Houzz article on how to build a deck in a single weekend. When you’re ready to build your deck, be sure to take advantage of our decking specials for this month (promotion ends March 31, 2013).
Nancy Cranston, Marketing Manager here at Parr Lumber Company, recently installed a new deck at her beach house near Gearhart, Oregon. Before beginning the project, Nancy and her husband had to decide on a material — wood or composite. Because the primary criteria were durability and low maintenance, finding material that could withstand the harsh weather conditions on the Oregon Coast became paramount. After an initial quote for wood decking involved a higher cost and more maintenance than Nancy was willing to invest, she began speaking with our decking professionals at Parr Lumber Company in order to hear their recommendations.
