With winter on the horizon, many people will begin to put away their deck furniture if they haven’t already. You may be wondering what you are going to do with it or where you are going to put all of your outdoor equipment. Many people are unaware that the under-deck area or dry space can actually be very useful if finished properly!
Patios and decks add a lot of outdoor space, allowing you to expand your living space. However, people forget about the space underneath the deck. The under deck provides a great opportunity to add to your storage options. After all, hauling all your patio furniture and decorations to the garage is not ideal. It is a lot easier just to move these big items into a dry space under your deck.
However, you can put anything into this storage area. Need easier access to winter tools? Put your snowblower or shovel into the under-deck! If you have kids, you can keep your backyard clean and clear of toys by having them stored on the deck when you are done. Having additional storage space is always a bonus but some people are concerned what they store will be susceptible to water damage, bugs, or critters. That is why people need to hire professional construction companies like Miles Bradley!

However, if you don’t want an under deck, why not add a dry space? If you don’t need the additional storage, you can expand your living space even more with dry space underneath your deck.

‘Tis The Season!
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 deck 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 with all those decorations once the celebrations are over? Well, it’s very easy to run out of space to store all of your holiday decorations. Miles Bradley has an idea for the perfect place for getting 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 weatherproof storage area for your seasonal decorations, deck furniture, and any other items your garage doesn’t have space for.
We will create the perfect under deck dry space 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!
Does your home need a new deck or maybe just some deck modifications? Now is the time! We have many solutions from building a new deck to rebuilding your old deck.
Some decks can be rebuilt using your existing understructure (the existing structure that your deck was built on top of). If the understructure on your current deck is in good shape we can remove the worn-out decking and railing, and build the new deck on the existing understructure. We replace it with a new, low-maintenance railing and decking saving you lots of money over building a brand new deck.
We service all of Michigan, the Detroit Metro area, and the Chicago Land area. We will come to your home for an estimate and see if your deck is a candidate for a rebuild on your existing understructure. When we rebuild a deck we rip out your old cedar deck and we install a low maintenance deck using Trek low maintenance material.
Also using the existing understructure we can rebuild and probably make modifications like creating an under deck dry space as part of the new design for the deck. You can go bigger or smaller; whatever you want to suit your style and home. Call us today so we can figure out the best option for your deck!
