Fall in Love With Your Deck Again!

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over! The kids are getting ready to start school again, the days are getting shorter, and before we know it, the grocery stores and coffee shops will be full of pumpkin everything. Fortunately, we live in Atlanta, where the warm weather stretches as late as October and beyond! DogGoneHandy can help you make the most of those perfect autumn Atlanta nights by repairing and sprucing up your deck.


Summer parties and barbecues are fun, but they can leave your deck a little rough around the edges. Spilled drinks and kids’ art projects can stain your deck, while the sun’s harsh rays can make it look worn and dated. Maybe you’ve even noticed some wood rot – the dreaded deck destroyer! Late summer is the perfect time to not only repair your deck, but also to add some cozy touches that will help your family maintain an outdoor lifestyle into fall and beyond. DogGoneHandy’s local handyman services can help you:


  • Repair wood rot, to ensure that your deck remains strong, sturdy, and safe for years to come. Our Atlanta handyman techs can also help with rot prevention, so you don’t have to continue worrying about your deck.
  • Add a fire pit for roasting s’mores and enjoying hot cocoa around during chilly months. Kids and adults alike will love the feeling of camping right at home!
  • Install screening to keep bugs out, year-round.
  • Create a dining space so you can entertain at home. You can also save money by creating a fun new space to eat at home, instead of going out to restaurants with patios!
  • Set up space heaters so that you can enjoy your backyard’s view and the crisp outdoors – with the warmth of a cozy kitchen. Why stress over putting your outdoor space heaters together, when you can hire a professional and consider it done?
  • Add lighting to brighten up dark nights. Our handyman electricians can help install the perfect lighting for your deck – whether that means adding sconces, installing overhead dimmers, or hanging twinkle lights up high.
  • Make it stylish! Found the perfect dining set for your deck? DogGoneHandy can handle all your furniture assembly. Plus, exterior door replacement can help make sure that the door leading from your home to your deck looks modern, stylish, and welcoming.


Most people wait until spring rolls around to think about their outdoor spaces and deck repairs. By getting a jump and completing this project in the fall, you’ll be able to make the most out of one of the best parts of living in Atlanta: the beautiful fall nights! Then, when spring rolls around and your friends are tackling their “spring cleaning,” you’ll already be out on the deck grilling up some burgers! For now, kick back, enjoy your first pumpkin spice latte of the season, and let us get to work!
