Congratulations on purchasing the melding of storage and beauty by adding a deck box to your patio. And as you begin to use it, you will find that the deck box will be the perfect place to store everything your patio needs, while keeping them conveniently accessible to all your guests. While your cushions and other accessories may find themselves protected and taken care of in the safety and comfort of your box, the exterior of your box may find itself wearing down over time. While it may shine of natural beauty now, you will slowly watch the charm and shine fade away. A stationary target opens itself up to collect dirt, debris, and other depressing items as time goes by. Making the perfect addition to your patio look more like the perfect dirt pile.
If your deck box will not have the same exposure to inclement weather throughout the year, or will be coming inside as the weather starts to come in the fall and winter, you may want to go the natural route and consider purchasing a wooden deck box. A wooden deck box will better compliment your current armada of patio furniture you already have (unless you have an all-resin patio), and will guarantee a beautiful look for years to come.
Not knowing what to look for in a deck box can make your search for a box frustrating at the very best of circumstances. But knowing what you want, and how it will react to the weather and situations, will help you make the right decision for years to come - making your deck box the preferred storage place for items on your patio.
If you have a wooden deck box, taking care of your investment may take several more steps before it gets easier. The materials that it is made out of will ultimately determine the best way to approach the sealing and cleaning of your outdoor furniture. While hard woods like cedar can take oil treatments to keep it protected, other woods (like pine or cypress) can be stained to give it an extra layer of protection, or even painted to your pleasure. Adding these protective barriers give your box a solid layer of protection against the elements, protecting from everything the world wants to throw at it and more. Plus, once your box has this key protective layer set up, cleaning can be as simple as taking a sponge and warm water to your box.
For the foundation or footing, concrete slab can be used by pouring cement into form and allowing it to solidify. The height of the box has to be measured with the measuring tape of course. The woods should be of same size for regularity. The wood can also be sanded for having a smooth surface. The frames have to be built by taking the measurement of the box.
