During the warmer months, people tend spend as much time as they can outdoors. Having an outdoor living area that is comfortable and fun is important to many homeowners, especially during this time of year. One way that any outdoor living area can be elevated is with the addition of synthetic turf. It is a low maintenance, easily-installed way to revitalize older spaces, regardless of if the space is outside a rented apartment or an owned home.
Synthetic Turf for the Deck and Patio
The most common areas of the home for placing synthetic turf are the deck and patio. This is especially beneficial for homeowners with children. Having synthetic turf installed on the deck or patio makes the area a softer, safer place for children to play. It can also soak up rain and excess water, which allows parties and get-togethers to go on after the rain has stopped without becoming a slip hazard (especially for the elderly).
Another benefit of synthetic turf for decks and patios is for homeowners who have hot tubs. Synthetic turf provides a softer cushion around the hot tub, and it also works to absorb any excess water that may spill out. Synthetic turf can extend the life of the deck or patio too, by reducing the wear and tear that happens directly on the wood with everyday use.
Synthetic Turf for the Rooftop and Balcony
Rooftops and balconies aren’t as commonly considered for synthetic turf installation, but they are another great outdoor living area that can benefit from this type of upgrade. This is especially true for homeowners who live in bigger cities and don’t have as much access to larger outdoor spaces. Since these areas are often their refuge in a busy world, why not make them as comfortable as possible?
If you are considering having synthetic turf installed on the roof, there are a few extra considerations to take into account. Tile should be installed under the synthetic turf to help prevent any potential damage from standing water being trapped between the layers. This helps to channel and direct the water away from the roof.
Synthetic turf is also great for the balcony, especially since renters can experience the benefits. It can be placed directly on top of other balcony materials without damaging them, and can be easily removed before the renter moves out. It can help renters have a little more outdoor space, especially in small, city apartments. Synthetic turf can be cut to any size, no matter how big or small.
