Invest in Your Outdoor Space

In today’s fast-paced world, finding time to relax and unwind can be hard. However, your outdoor space can provide the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whether you have a small deck or a spacious yard, there are various ways to enhance your outdoor space and make it a welcoming retreat. Investing in your outdoor space not only increases the value of your property but it also provides a space for – you. Kim Williams, VP of Retail Operations from Williams Lumber and Home Centers, recommends two high-impact investments to upgrade and enjoy your outdoor space this season.

Add Low-Maintenance Decking

“So often people think that composite is out of their price range,” Williams says. “While the upfront price of pressure-treated lumber is low, an investment in composite decking like Trex breaks even after a few years,” Williams says. “It doesn’t have the annual maintenance costs associated with wood like sanding, staining, and painting, so it costs less over its lifetime and lasts longer too.” Trex is a high-performance, durable, eco-friendly alternative (95% recycled material, made in the USA) to wood decking. Williams points out that “although the upfront costs may be more with Trex over a wood deck, the time, labor, and money for maintenance will add up over the years on the wood deck. You may even break even today or advance with the escalating treated lumber prices.” Trex offers a variety of decking and railing

Install Sustainable, Recyclable Pavers

Cambridge pavers and outdoor living products can be a terrific way to expand your backyard and create a resort-like feeling you will never want to leave. Cambridge pavers and wall systems can be installed around a pool area, create a patio or driveway steps, stairs, or retaining walls. Cambridge offers prepackaged kits for fire pits and fireplaces, outdoor grilling areas and kitchens, pizza ovens, and wet bars. Williams likes Cambridge because they are 100% natural and made in the USA. They are sustainable, recyclable, and provide many social and economic benefits. They also come with a fully transferable limited lifetime warranty. The best attribute is that Cambridge uniquely features ArmorTec. What is it? A mix of sand, aggregate, collections so everyone can build their dream deck. cement, pigment, and a limited amount of water. Cambridge has advanced this age-old technology to perfection that we call ArmorTec. The Armor Tec consistency within the Cambridge pavers prevents breakdown and deterioration, so your project can be enjoyed for generations. Williams says, “The possibilities are endless. And what’s most important is that you don’t have to accomplish everything at once. The beauty of hardscapes is that
each year you can expand your project and achieve your ultimate paradise one step or season at a time!”
