Decking - Chattanooga Exteriors

Football Season: Deck & Patio

By Laura Freeman

Well, it’s that time of year when we hear that familiar old ditty … “Are you ready for some Footbaaaaaaall?” Football season is upon us and this just might be the year you invest in that perfect outdoor entertainment area, your new patio/deck football viewing enclave.

Think about it. A deeply wood grained composite deck, some stone pillars, a gorgeous grilling area with overhead lighting and fans, a large screen TV to watch every gridiron moment, comfy chairs and your best friends gathered for Game Day!

Start with some Trex decking, made with over 95% recycled materials, in more than a dozen rich colors, and installed professionally by your local Trex contractor, Chattanooga Exteriors. Layer in a stainless steel gas/charcoal/smoker combo grill, some marble counter tops and a wet bar, and a warm fireplace for those chilly fall evenings. Accent with some subtle directional lighting, and you have a recipe for the best family and friends entertaining area imaginable!

At Chattanooga Exteriors we can handle everything from your built-in barbeque and fireplace, to making sure your electronics stay high and dry, railings, fences, gazebos, you name it, if it is in the exterior space, we can handle it.

Back to School!

By Laura Freeman

Ahh! Back to school! That bag of mixed feelings that as parents we experience every year. For some, it’s the first ever encounter, the very first day of school. Joy, some tears, photo ops for sure. For others, perhaps it is the last first day of school, senior year begins and the future awaits.

Whatever back to school means for you, it comes with the relief in knowing that for several hours a day, your offspring is in good hands, and you, have some time on yours.

Time to think about a few fall projects, taking care of the home those children come home to. A touch up of paint here, a replaced gutter spout there. Maybe it’s even time to tackle that deck replacement or finally getting around to residing the house?

Whatever the project, remember Chattanooga Exteriors is a phone call away to help you tackle those needs, big or small. We can install a practically indestructible shield of James Hardie siding on your home, the only siding brand that offers beauty, design, low maintenance, and durability. James Hardie siding is flame and moisture resistant, protects against termites and pests, and is resistant to climate change.

Maybe you have been thinking of replacing your older worn deck with long lasting, durable composite decking, now that the kids are back in school it is the best time ever to get that done. Made with over 95% recycled materials, deeply wood grained in more than a dozen rich colors, and installed professionally by your local TrexPro Platinum contractor, Chattanooga Interiors. Getting a new deck has never less hassle free.

Now is also a good time to examine your gutters and downspouts as you get ready for the leaves and debris that will start happening in a few weeks. Check for large blockages of leaves, pine needles, or stray baseballs. It is best of course to check them when it’s raining: If water pours over the top of a gutter, it’s blocked. Be sure water flows freely from downspouts too. Problems? Let Chattanooga Exteriors inspect and repair any damage and offer a solution to prevent blockages from occurring in the future.

Now, pour yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee and listen to your house. Do you hear that? The sound of back to school … nice isn’t it?

Deck Safety Composite Decking

Is Your Deck Safe For Summer Activities?

By Laura Freeman

Did you know… May is Deck Safety Month. As we wrap up this month and continue on into the Summer, we wanted to share some very important deck safety tips and information to help make sure your deck is in good shape and ready for company. Barbecues, fiestas, birthdays and graduation parties, the 4th of July, Labor Day… getting together with friends and family is what summer is all about. But before you begin planning and hosting gatherings that may spill out onto your deck, be sure to have your deck checked out by an expert to make sure it can handle the extra weight and movement of your visitors.

If you’d like us to come out to take a look at your deck, get in touch. We can give you safety suggestions and let you know if we think it may be time to replace your decking, framing, or flashing.
