Plan a deck renovation during the fall so you don’t have to sacrifice any of your deck days next year. 

Plan a deck renovation during the fall so you don’t have to sacrifice any of your deck days next year. 

Right now is the perfect time to hire a renovation contractor for an outdoor renovation. The hot and sweaty days of summer are behind us, and we’re not quite into the season where the snow sticks to the ground. That means the weather is absolutely perfect for working outside. Plus, you won’t really be missing your deck while it’s out of commission. 

If you’re still on the fence about updating or remodelling your current deck or patio, here are five reasons why you should consider doing it now.


1. Get a Jump-start on Summer Living

Let’s face it – No one wants to give up their backyard and deck to a crew for renovations during the summer months. When you live in the Okanagan, you want to spend as much time as you can outdoors. If you were to plan a patio renovation next summer, you’d have to give up a couple of deck days while the work is being performed. Instead, plan the renovation now so you can enjoy every hot day on your beautifully updated patio next year.


2. Shop Off-season Sales

A new or renovated patio deserves beautiful new furniture, which can get pretty expensive during peak season. To save yourself a little bit of shopping money, plan your deck renovation during the off-season. When you do that, you can purchase end-of-season patio furniture with a price tag that’s been heavily discounted.


3. Include a Hot Tub in the Renovation 

Picture yourself sitting outside in a bubbling hot tub watching the cold snow swirl when it meets the steam rising from your newly installed hot tub. It looks pretty magical, right? Plan a deck renovation with trusted, local home improvement contractors this fall and be sure to include a hot tub in your plans. Not only will you have a stunning space to enjoy during the sunny days of summer, but you’ll also have a nice warm tub to retreat to when the weather gets chilly. 


4. Tie a Patio Reno into Fall Landscaping Plans

Many homeowners in the Okanagan prefer to plan landscaping changes and updates in the fall. This ensures they can hit the ground running once the snow melts and get their gardens planted and lawn maintenance underway as soon as possible in the spring. If you’re like these other homeowners, consider updating your deck or patio when you do your landscaping. Come spring, you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your fall labour.


5. Grill All Year Long 

If your current deck doesn’t have a space for your BBQ, make some! Grilling outdoors when the weather is cooler is a great way to enjoy some of your favourite summer recipes. If your current grilling station isn’t covered or easy to access in slippered feet, consider renovating your deck or patio now before the snow arrives so you can have access to your grill all year long.
