How to Keep Cool on Your Fiberon Deck

Blog 16
There’s just something about summertime. Even though most of us don’t get that wonderful three-month vacation that our kids do, summer never really loses its appeal.

That’s because, when the hot weather beats down, families like to get outside for some serious fun-in-the-sun adventures.

Your Fiberon Deck is exactly the place for all your July and August fun. If you’re like most people, summer comes as an escape from all the ice, snow, and gray skies. If you live in the Midwest or in the East, this past winter was severe.

Once the bright sun (finally!) made an appearance, millions of people sat down on their Fiberon deck to breath a sigh of relief. The wintertime blues had come to end! But as things heat up, summer can become every bit as tiresome.

No worries, because we’ve got the tips you need to make your outdoor living space a cool-down oasis, even though the temperature keeps getting hotter and hotter.


Make Your Fiberon Deck a Poolside Paradise

One of the best parts of Fiberon’s composite decking materials…it’s got to be the multi-functionality.

Our product is designed to suit your lifestyle and taste. When it comes to your outdoor living space, you can build the deck that fits your dreams.


Many homeowners don’t realize that Fiberon decks serve as the perfect surrounding for your pool. When it comes to summer fun, you can make a splash. Literally.

Let the kids enjoy some pool fun. Supervise from your poolside lounge chair, or you can even turn a few laps yourself. When you have a pool-feature on your Fiberon deck, you’re sure to beat the heat every day this summer.


Use Canopies and Umbrellas

One of our favorite deck accessories has got to be canopies and umbrellas. In fact, these wonderful items not only shield you from the sun, canopies and umbrellas also allow you to enjoy your outdoor living space in the rain!

We’ve all experienced those summertime showers. When it’s not the heat, it’s the rain. So why not beat both with a canopy?


Got a Garden Hose? Use It.

When’s the last time you played in the sprinkler? Don’t try to say you haven’t had the urge to run back and forth through that spraying water. When the sun blares down over your head, you may find yourself in need of a quick cool-down.

Well, if you’ve got a garden hose, you can use it! Let the kids run through the sprinkler on hot days. (And yes, even adults are allowed to have the same kind of fun.) While you’re busy giggling in the cool mist, you’re also keeping cool.


Keep the Drinks Flowing

Sounds like common sense, but so often people become dangerously dehydrated in the summer months. While you’re busy relaxing with a novel, or hanging out by your sparkling swimming pool, keep drinking liquids to cool your body down naturally.

We recommend a pitcher on your deck table. If you’ve got a cooler on hand, fill it full of ice, soda, lemonade cans, and water. That way, you can spend the whole afternoon on your outdoor living space without having to worry about the heat.

We mentioned having a pool, and we think you should get one! If this has been a dream on yours for awhile…
