Latest deck trend: ‘Monster’ size, mega-luxury

Size, amenities and even the materials used can make a deck a “monster.” This deck features multiple sitting areas, dining table and fire and water elements, and is constructed from manmade Envision composite lumber by TAMKO Building Products, Inc. (BPT) – Move over mini - the new trend in decking is anything but small. When it comes to the size of their decks, the majority of Americans feel bigger is better - as multiple surveys indicate decks are getting larger and more luxurious, RealtorMag reports. Today’s decks dwarf the outdoor spaces of decades ago, and blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces with features like full kitchens, dining and entertainment areas, says Kim Katwijk, owner of Deck Builders Inc. in Olympia, Washington. Katwijk is a 20-year veteran of the deck-building business, and co-producer of the upcoming web series Outdoors Outdone. Sizable changes Katwijk says the intersection of two major home trends is driving the growth of “monster” decks: homes are getting

larger and outdoor living has reached mainstream status. Last year, more than half of all new homes were 2,400 square feet or larger, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s “Characteristics of New Housing” report. In 1973, the average home size was 1,660 square feet. As homes grew, deck sizes have, too. RealtorMag reports one survey found that since 2014, the average deck size grew by 53 percent in the Northeast, to 406 square feet. The making of a ‘monster’ deck So what makes a deck project “monster”? Size, design, materials and amenities all combine in this nationwide trend. Size - “Monster” decks are big - really big. Mark Kalady, a decking sales manager for TAMKO Building Products, Inc., says he’s recently seen

residential decks grow to 3,000 square feet. Depending on the amenities included, a deck 1,600-1,800 square feet could also be considered “monster.” Kitchens/dining - Cooking and dining areas are among the most requested luxury features, deck builders say. Luxury grills, built-in pizza ovens and full-cook stoves and sinks are becoming more common. Water/fire - Fire and water features such as hot tubs, lap pools, fireplaces and fire pits are part of the trend of bringing the indoors out. These focal points serve as relaxation, exercise and entertaining stations. Seating - Katwijk says “conversational pits” designed specifically for extended entertaining allow deck-users to enjoy time together away from the cooking and dining areas. Multi-story - “Monster” decks often include multiple

levels, with each level serving a different theme or intended use, such as dining, conversation, swimming, etc. Technology - Many of today’s larger decks include living room areas equipped with bigscreen TVs, wireless speakers and gaming systems. But the technology used on monster decks can extend to retractable glass walls and skylights, and even the deck boards themselves. Katwijk says the technology behind man-made decking products like Envision composite lumber offers the luxury appearance of exotic woods, but with minimal annual maintenance. “People want an environment where they can be outdoors, yet have all the creature comforts of their home - essentially creating a space where they can do all the things that they love,” Katwijk says.

based on his firsthand experience with the unique wood. “The performance is great,” Martin says. “I’ve had cypress siding on my own home for more than 20 years, and I’ve only had to repaint it once in that time. One of the main reasons I recommend cypress is because it’s resistant to decay, as well as insects like termites and bees. Carpenter bees love some other species of wood, such as cedar. They’ll bore in and lay their eggs, and then woodpeckers come along and gouge out grooves to get to the eggs, destroying the wood. That’s not an issue with cypress.” As Martin has learned, cypress comes by its durability naturally, thanks to an oil that is produced while the tree is growing. The oil acts as a pre-

servative, meaning cypress wood doesn’t need to be pressure treated with chemicals like some other wood siding options. David and Laurel Mullikin, a husband-and-wife design/build duo in Atlanta, say they use cypress regularly in outdoor applications. “We’ve designed some of our best projects with cypress,” Laurel says. “It’s one of our favorite species of wood to use. In fact, we’re currently designing our own new home. We are incorporating cypress as the ceilings for our porches, adding a lot of aesthetic warmth to a part of the house many people overlook.

(BPT) – If current design trends are any indication, wood siding is back. Design professionals are recommending one species in particular: cypress. What’s behind this revival of cypress siding?

Cypress siding provides good looks, natural durability and dependable performance at an affordable price – qualities that attract homeowners and design professionals alike.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 Shou Sugi Ban method, which involves charring the surface of the wood and then sanding and sealing it. The process not only provides a unique look to an already beautiful wood, but also enhances its natural durability.” For the best performance As with any wood siding, cypress will require a little TLC every now and then to look and perform best. With properly applied finishes and regular maintenance, cypress siding will last a lifetime or longer. Whether installing new cypress siding or refreshing existing wood, the first step is to make sure its surface is clean so that it can better absorb the desired finish. Wash the wood with a mild bleach-and-water solution, using a pressure washer on a low setting. Let the solution soak for 15 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. Then, allow the wood to dry for about a week. This also is a good time to repair any nail holes and surface irregularities. Homeowners who prefer cypress’ natural color can preserve the look by applying a clear, water-repellant sealer to all sides and edges of siding boards. It’s also suggested to look for products with a UV inhibitor to block out the sun’s fading rays. Sealers should be reapplied every few years to rejuvenate and protect the wood. If left untreated, over time, cypress will weather to a dark gray. To bring out the richness of cypress’ grain, semi-transparent, oil-based stains work best. These stains will penetrate the wood, prevent water problems and allow the wood to breathe. Stains typically need to be reapplied every two years. If you like the clean look of a solid finish, paint it. For best results, apply a 100 percent acrylic latex paint with a compatible primer. It’s also recommended to back prime the boards to avoid any potential moisture issues. No matter your chosen finish, remember to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for best results.

should repair or replace your cooling system: When you can still repair Sometimes, it may be preferable to repair a minor problem than to replace a system. Your cooling system might still be a candidate for repair if: It’s less than 10 years old and/or is a high-quality, energy-efficient model. The repair is still covered under warranty, or you will be able to pay for the repair without financing the cost. The cost of the repair will be far less than the cost of replacement. You can reasonably expect the repair to solve your problem. Repairing the problem means that specific issue isn’t likely to reoccur throughout the system’s remaining lifespan. When it’s time to replace It can be much easier to recognize the signs that it’s time to replace a worn-out cooling system. They can include: A system that is 10 or more years old. Frequent and repeated repairs that are adding up to be very costly. Even after repairs and/or maintenance, the system still doesn’t adequately cool your home. Very high energy bills.

Cumberland Times-News Real Estate Guide, July 15, 2017 5

Modern cooling systems are significantly more energy-efficient than older units. You can afford to finance a replacement, but can no longer afford to pay cash for repairs. The unreliability of the worn-out cooling system is affecting the comfort of your home and causing you to feel stress. Replacing a cooling system When you decide replacing a cooling system makes the most sense for your needs, you’ll need to start looking for a new system. Here are

some points to keep in mind: Choosing an energy-efficient unit like the Champion(R) Momentum(TM) Variable Capacity Air Conditioner can greatly reduce energy bills while improving the comfort of your home. Refer to the system’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) to get an idea of how much more energy-efficient the new unit is. Modern air-conditioning systems can be over 50 percent more efficient than ones manufactured a decade ago. It’s important to right-size your new cooling system. A system that is too small for your home won’t be able to

deliver the desired comfort level, and will use more energy working harder at maintaining cool temperatures. A system that is too large will also use more energy and may result in uneven cooling throughout the house. Your Champion dealer can provide a load calculation and energy analysis to help you determine the right-size system for your home. Depending on the age of your home and your cooling system, you may have to repair or replace other elements, too. Have your home’s ductwork, insulation, refrigerant piping, electrical service, wiring, thermostat and

other cooling system components inspected, too. Ensuring all the parts of the system are in top working order will help your new air-conditioning unit work at its best, too. To learn more about the

advantages of replacing a worn-out cooling system, what you should look for in a new system and where to find a dealer near you, visit www.championhomecomfort. com/repair.

Signs you need a grill upgrade the long haul. Number one on the list of importance for grillers is high-quality construction and durability. Some grills, like some relationships, lose their luster over time. Consider a grill that offers superior construction, high-quality materials and a long warranty. 2. You’ve Been Left in the Dark - Are you and your grill riding off into the sunset, or when darkness falls are you left by your lonesome? Look for a grill that features integrated interior lights and lighted control knobs to help keep the flame burning all night long. Napoleon’s Prestige PRO series even offers knobs that turn red when the gas is on

While you likely have a sentimental attachment to your grill, like most Americans, you may feel you could do better. How do you know when it’s time to cut ties and move on?

and blue when the gas is off, allowing users to know exactly which burners are lit for both precise grilling and added safety. 3. It Feels Like a Chore Some say relationships should be simple. This is especially true when it comes to your relationship with your grill. Look for traits in your partner that make life easier, like easy assembly and set-up, an integrated wood chip smoker tray or interior storage to house all the grilling essentials. 4. There’s No Spark - Wanna feel the heat? Meet the infrared burner. Perfect for steaks, it heats up fast and gets extremely hot - much like a young summer romance, but with the durability to last a lifetime. 5. You’re Left Wanting More - Perhaps you’re feeling restless, looking for something more, but not quite sure what. How about a built-in ice bucket for marinade or a cold beverage? Or a built-in cutting board for added convenience? Today’s grills offer features you didn’t even know you needed, until now. Life’s too short to be stuck in a lackluster relationship - even if it’s with your grill. You can do better. To begin your online search for a fiery soulmate, visit NapoleonGrills.com.
