Have a Fire Pit

Fire innately comforts humans. Since the dawn of time, fire has been used for cooking, providing us with the nourishing meals our bodies need to function, for warmth, and for protection from wild animals. Thus, when we have a fire today, we get the same warm and fuzzy feelings inside, the same sense of peace, and the same relaxed feelings. A fire pit on your deck is a great way to relax after a long day.

Roast Marshmallows

Once you get your fire pit up and roaring, what can be more comforting than s’mores? This scrumptious dessert of graham crackers, melted marshmallows, and chocolate first officially appeared in a Girl Scout book in 1927. Ever since, roasting marshmallows over a fire has become a time-honored (and delicious) tradition ever since.

Eat Dinner

Eating dinner on a warm evening on your deck is another great way to relax. You can listen to the birds, watch butterflies, or enjoy a beautiful sunset — all the while eating your favorite foods. Add in a glass of wine or a cold beer, plus a few friends, and you have one very relaxing and enjoyable evening.

Soak in Your Hot Tub

Hot tubs have amazing benefits, such as soothing sore muscles, helping to increase blood circulation, which promotes healing, and relieve stress. You also sleep better after a soak in a hot tub on your deck. You can choose to have your hot but on your lower deck so your upper deck offers shelter, making it nice to use on colder days here in Colorado.


Here in Colorado, the weather can turn on a dime. One moment, you are sitting outside, sipping your favorite coffee, and the next minute, the wind kicks up, and it starts hailing. With such a variance and an unpredictability in the weather, it helps to know that your lower deck is protected.

An under deck drainage system offers protection from the elements, protects your home’s foundations, helps to prevent rot and decay on wood surfaces, and adds beauty and value to your home or office.
