Outdoor Projects For Warmer Weather

Well, it’s about time! It’s May and the weather is finally getting warmer here in southern New England. And that means it’s time to go outside and work on those outdoor projects. Perhaps you’re thinking about adding a deck to your home?

Building a new deck is one of the first projects that comes to mind when spring approaches. Although it can be installed at almost any time of year, it’s cool enough in the spring to work easily and without the heat and humidity of summer.

And you’re in luck! A good amount of new decking has arrived at Builders Surplus recently.

Outdoor Projects For Warmer Weather: Decking

When you shop our stores, you’ll find a selection of composite decking which includes:

At our Warwick store, a variety of solid mahogany or composite decking is on display. Mahogany decking is natural, beautiful and quite durable. Composite decking is also durable as the boards can be installed on the ground, in the ground, and even underwater, allowing for a wide variety of application options.

Also available (at our Jewett City and Lunenburg stores) is Indura Gray composite decking. This is constructed of extruded High Density Polyethylene with a slip resistant brushed finish. It is an environmental friendly deck system with no wood or PVC.

Builders Surplus in West Warwick also offers a supply of grooved composite decking in shades of brown. Featuring understated wood grain patterns, it’s easy to maintain as it withstands fading and there’s no need for staining or painting ever.

Beautiful Mahogany Decking

Natural Kayu mahogany decking is a beautiful hardwood choice. If you’re ready to add an outdoor living space to your home, you’ll want to take a look at mahogany decking. It will create a perfect spot for entertaining friends and family, while adding value to your home.

Mahogany decking is durable, dense and strong. It allows for interior or exterior use. Mahogany decking is a great choice for decks, privacy screens, and porches. It is easy to maintain by sealing it with penetrating oil. But if you decide to leave it untreated, the wood develops an attractive silvery tone over time.
