Finding A Good Deck Storage Box
Storing your valuable patio cushions during winter and wet season, is important! The patio furniture is how you enjoy your summer time with your family and friends. The cushions are not made of HDPE and are not 100% weather proof. No matter if your winter will be only wet or ice freezing, the soft cushions should not be exposed for winter elements if you really want them to last more than one season.
Finding a good outdoor storage box is essential to protect your outdoor sitting cushions from rain, dampness, dirt and debris. Here are some of the things you need to consider once you decide to buy a storage box for your patio or deck:
- It must be big enough to store plenty of items.
- It must be 100% weatherproof! To hold off rain, snow, winds, and blizzards.
- It must be UV safe, so it will not fade or crack in the sun.
- It must be lockable, if left outside, or to keep it out of reach of children.
- It must be easy to assembly, otherwise it will not meet your needs.
There are plenty of outdoor deck boxes out there, some may be big enough, others may have UV protection, but a good box which is intended to be out for years in your backyard, should have all the features. You do not want to wake up one spring day and to find out that your patio cushions have been soaked with rain, left damp for weeks, mold stains, and bad smell sticking to them.
It is wiser to invest in a durable all weather large patio storage box and know your cushions are well protected, dry and clean just waiting for that sunny winter day to be pulled out and placed on the chairs and furniture.
