Make Your Spring Backyard Oasis with Mountain View Sun Decks

As winter weather begins to thaw in Calgary, it’s time to turn your backyard into the oasis you deserve this Spring and Summer.

Who isn’t excited about patio weather? How cool would it be if all you had to do was step out of your backdoor to kick back and relax on your dream patio?

At Mountain View Sun Decks, we believe everyone deserves a backyard deck that’ll make you wonder why you’d ever leave the house again to get some sun and throw back a few cold beverages in the beautiful Spring and Summer months. 

Today, we will explain how the pros at Mountain View Sun Deck can make your backyard oasis a reality, and why we are Calgary’s most trusted deck builder.

Spring is a Great Time to Start Building a Deck in Calgary

Are you looking to build a deck in Calgary? Spring is the perfect time to start! Not only does the weather provide ideal conditions for construction, but building in the spring means you’ll have your new deck ready in time for Summer.

Building a deck is a smart investment whether you’re looking to expand your outdoor living space or increase your home’s value. And with the help of the professional contractors at Mountain View Sun Deck, you can ensure your deck is built to last.

Building Your Deck into a Spring and Summer Backyard Oasis

Transforming your deck into a backyard oasis for spring and summer can be a fun and exciting project. Here are some tips on how to make the most out of your outdoor space:

  • Add comfortable seating: Create a cozy and inviting atmosphere by adding comfortable seating to your deck. Consider investing in outdoor furniture such as lounge chairs, sofas, and benches.
  • Incorporate shade: While soaking up the sun can be enjoyable, having a shaded area on your deck is important to retreat from the heat. You can add shade by installing an awning, a pergola, or by using outdoor umbrellas.
  • Install outdoor lighting: Lighting can create a magical ambiance, and it’s essential for enjoying your deck at night. Consider string lights, lanterns, and even landscape lighting for added elegance.
  • Bring in greenery: Plants add life and colour to your outdoor space. Consider adding potted plants or installing built-in planters on your deck. You can also incorporate a vertical garden or hanging plants for a unique touch.
  • Incorporate water features: Adding a water feature, such as a fountain or a small pond, can create a relaxing and tranquil environment on your deck.

By implementing these tips, you can turn your deck into a luxurious backyard oasis that will be perfect for entertaining and relaxation. Remember to hire a professional deck builder like Mountain View Sun Deck to ensure that your deck is built to last and to incorporate your vision into the design.

Need Some Spring Cleaning Maintenance For Your Existing Deck?

At Mountain View Sun decks, we pride ourselves in the fact that our decks are built to last. Even better, they also need minimal maintenance because of the quality of materials and construction we use. 

However, this does not mean that your deck never needs any kind of maintenance. When the snow melts and you are itching to prepare your deck for the warmer months, it might be a good time to do some routine maintenance.

Here are some tips on how to maintain your deck this Spring:

  • Inspect the deck: Check for any loose or damaged boards, railing, stairs, and support structures. Look for any signs of rot or decay, and replace or repair any damaged areas.
  • Clean the deck: Sweep off any debris, including leaves, twigs, and dirt. Use a pressure washer to remove any built-up dirt or grime. Use a deck cleaner to remove any mold or mildew if you have a wooden deck.
  • Seal or stain the deck: Applying a sealant or stain will protect your deck from water damage, UV rays, and other outdoor elements. Make sure to use a product that is suitable for your deck’s material. The decks that we build generally come with a long-lasting sealant pre-applied, so this tip hopefully won’t have to be implemented for many, many years. 
  • Trim vegetation: Cut back any plants or bushes that are touching your deck to prevent moisture and debris buildup. This will also help improve air circulation around the deck, which can prevent mold and mildew growth.
  • Check and clean the gutters: If your deck is attached to your house, make sure to check and clean the gutters to prevent water damage and flooding.

When you follow these deck maintenance tips, you can keep your backyard deck in excellent condition and extend its lifespan. If you need clarification on any aspect of maintaining your deck, it’s always best to consult a professional. 

The Kinds of Decks That Mountain View Sun Decks Constructs

We use only the highest quality materials that are built to last in the sometimes harsh weather conditions in Calgary. This included materials that are resistant to UV rays, water, wind, mold, and many other potentially damaging factors. 

The decking material we use includes: 

  • Vinyl decking 
  • PVC decking
  • Composite decking
  • Pressure treated decking
  • Cedar decking 

Your deck will be constructed the way you want it, so if you’re looking to build with a combination of these materials, we can do it as long as it complies with construction and safety regulations. 

Mountain View Sun Decks Builds Outdoor Stairs and Railings Too!

There’s a good chance that your deck won’t be ready for spring without railings and stairs to accompany it. No worries, we specialize in designing and constructing those too. 

We can construct your railings with many of the same materials as we do with decks, but other options include: 

  • Aluminum railings
  • Glass railings
  • Bronze railings

And combinations of these materials are available as well. 

When it comes to stairs, again, we build them with many of the same quality decking and railing materials. They will be built and designed to accommodate your style with a potential mix of building materials that can be used.
