(9 Photos) Bright And Breezy Sunrooms to Enjoy Fall | Outdoor Living | Scoop.it

Neither indoors nor out, a sunroom or screened porche offer the best of both worlds for your Halifax home!

Maurice Meagher's insight:

(9 Photos) Bright And Breezy Sunrooms to Enjoy Fall


Fall is the season that we typically build more enclosures for Halifax homeowners. Screened porches, porches, and year round sunrooms. You are not completely exposed to the elements, you are away from annoying mosquitoes, ticks, and bugs, and it`s warmer than being outside. The other benefit that can be enjoyed with a properly designed and constructed room, is the addition of natural light. There are a range of different options available if you are thinking about adding a room addition to your Halifax space.

Record highs this week in Nova Scotia. Let's hope that you timed your beach vacation correctly! If you find yourself trying to find shade in hopes of cooling off, maybe an awning or a permanent shade structure (like the pergolas in our gallery) can provide your Halifax backyard the shade you need.

The Pros and Cons of Composite Decking vs Wood Decking

The Pros and Cons of Composite Decking vs Wood Decking | Outdoor Living | Scoop.it

While traditional decks are made of wood, a new product, composite, that is environmentally friendly and needs almost no maintenance.  Use these pros and cons to help decide what material to use for your Halifax deck.

Maurice Meagher's insight:

The Pros and Cons of Composite Decking vs Wood Decking


For many years, Halifax homeowners used only locally available wood to build their decks, porches and outdoor structures.  We still use pressure-treated wood, or Western red Cedar on approximately 60% of the decks, and outdoor structures that we build.  There are, however many different material selections available now as a building owner, or homeowner. Composite, or low maintenance decking, and railing has become very popular over the last decade. Use these pros and cons to help decide what material to use for your Halifax deck.
