The third reason wooden deck boxes are beneficial is because they are great alternatives to clutter due to outdoor coolers. Coolers are essential for large parties but they can often take up more room on the deck than your guests. Wooden deck boxes can be purchased large enough to fit a large cooler or a few small coolers inside of them. Waterproof vinyl lining is also optional or can be purchased separate so you can pour the ice and drinks directly in the box.
The fifth reason a wooden deck box is beneficial is because of how much money you will save on pool equipment. Pool toys are delicate and one hole can destroy the entire product. This will no longer be a worry with a storage box to place all of the equipment in directly after use. Placing dry towels inside will reduce the amount of dirt and water being tracked through the house when you forget to bring them outside. You may even choose to put wet towels in them before returning inside.
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.
Take a look at your deck. Are there hoses strewn around? Are the grill accessories sitting on the patio table? How about the pool toys or chemicals, are they placed on the deck floor because you do not want to tote them to the garage? If you see any of these scenarios, or any others, then you should invest in a couple of deck boxes for storage.
Plastic, most of the time polyethylene, is used in the construction of deck boxes. The plastic is injection molded into the sturdy panels that make up the walls and top. Boxes with double walled construction are very sturdy and reliable. This type of plastic will not chip or crack for the duration of its life, which makes it an investment that will hold true for many years. Some deck boxes are made from wood. While sturdy, wood is susceptible to rotting when exposed to water. It also has a tendency to attract critters and not be truly watertight.
