springtime deck building in Iowa

Spring Time Deck Building

It's spring and our thoughts turn to outdoor living.

We long for the days soon to come when we can sit on our deck and relax outside, and our mouths are already watering for the first barbecue of the season.

With the spring weather approaching, this brings the opportunities to focus on the exterior of our homes and begin to prepare them for summer.

If you have a deck, you can start planning today to get it ready for another season of outdoor living. If you don’t have a deck, this could be an exciting time to start planning for a new addition to your home.

Existing Decks That Need Some Love

Because decks sit outside in the elements, they are subject to damage from the constant exposure to wind, water, and sunshine. In addition to getting a good bath, your deck may also need some repairs or updating to ensure it is in prime condition for barbeque season.

If the floor of your deck is wood, it is vulnerable to damage from the weather. When the end grain (the end of wood slats) is exposed, the wood will soak up water and begin to mold and rot.

Moisture in the flooring can also impact the framing beneath the deck and the bottoms of columns and stair railings that rest on the flooring.

Planning For A New Deck


Sitting outside in the grass or on a concrete slab is ok, but sitting on your deck is great! The experts at Midwest Builders can design and build a deck or patio that is exactly what you want.

A deck can be used for outdoor cooking, entertainment, family time, creative time, relaxing, and much more
