The pandemic has changed the way we use our homes; they are now our offices, our schools, our kid’s playgrounds. As we cope in these hard times together with our stay-at-home orders, we also face a daunting new normal when leaving the house, with social distancing and face-covering protocols. Public concern has become self-evident with many folks choosing to work from home and many others cancelling vacation plans and altering their lifestyles to avoid risks associated with contracting covid-19. With these considerations in mind, many folks are now more than ever looking to invest in their homes and outdoor living areas to increase their quality of life.

Studies have shown that spending time outside has significant and wide-ranging health benefits and believe it or not, to reap these benefits, all you really need to do is go outside and relax! Studies show you burn more calories by spending time outdoors versus indoors, not to mention the fresh air and sunlight can elevate your vitamin D levels, lower blood pressure, improve your sleep, boost your immunity and can even help to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Having your own sanctuary has never been more important.

Staying healthy during the pandemic is of great importance and safety has always been a top consideration for the whole team at Cedarbrook.

Talk to the Pro Deck Builders

The experience with your entire company, from start to finish, was excellent. First we needed our railing replaced on a very tight time schedule - John came out and worked through two weekends, replaced both the railing and reconstructed our stairs, with finishing up in time for us to host a family gathering (Wow - Nice Job!). We then followed up with a contract to replace our existing decking. The crew came out and completed the work on schedule - an excellent job! They even had to add additional support beams and worked to ensure that all edges were as level and as even as could be. Mike and company are very responsive, personable, and highly professional. We will use them again, when we are able to add another set of stairs. GREAT JOB! Thanks!
