You can still enjoy the crisp fall air and the changing colors in the trees from your outdoor deck or patio. Adding a few deck accessories can help protect you from chilly breezes and rain so you can still host get-togethers and enjoy your deck well into the fall.
Adding a screen rail to your deck or underdeck area adds some protection from the elements, as well as keeps bugs away. Screen rails are a very cost-effective way to add a protected space to an existing deck. Screen rails come in a variety of finishes to easily integrate with existing deck railings.
Another way to make your deck even more comfortable in cool weather is to add water-resistant underdeck ceilings. This doubles your usable deck space by creating an additional useable outdoor space beneath your deck. Underdecking not only visually transforms the space below a deck, but it also turns it into an inviting outdoor space that’s protected from the elements.
With your decking materials in place for cooler weather, throwing a cozy fall get-together is easy! Serving fall favorites like chili, cornbread, and hot chocolate or apple cider are sure to be crowd-pleasers. Add a few stacks of warm blankets and ingredients for s’mores and you’ll be all set to enjoy the gorgeous fall weather right in your backyard!
