Creating Weatherproof Storage Space Under Your Deck
Seasonal decorations are always a fun way to change things up and spice up any living space. But while you’re decorating your interior space for the holidays, don’t forget your outdoor spaces as well. We’re talking about perking up your deck for the holidays, and what better way to do that than with some festive lights! We offer custom lighting that can brighten up your festivities, and make your deck that much safer. If you would like a more temporary solution, Christmas tree lights and outdoor decorations will make you the envy of the neighborhood.
What to do to with all those decorations once the celebrations are over? We’re sure you’re running out of space to store all of your holiday decoration and could use some help figuring out new space.
One of the easiest ways to get extra storage space is by utilizing the space you already have. We are talking about the space you may have under your deck. If you have a deck that is high enough off the ground we can turn that old unused space into a weather proof storage area for your seasonal decorations, deck furniture, and any other items your garage doesn’t have space for.
We will create the perfect environment for you that will be properly sealed and prepared for those Midwest winters. This includes a drainage system and insulation so you don’t have to worry about your items being exposed to the elements. We know that a harsh winter could be on our horizon, so make sure your storage spaces are ready for it.
Contact us today to ask about our storage spaces and find out how you can utilize that unused space for your storage needs!
