Whether starting from scratch or making plans for a replacement, getting a new deck is exciting. You’re probably tempted to call contractors right away for estimates, but wait until you make these decisions first. Doing this first helps you and your contractor put together the most accurate estimate so there’s less of a chance of any expensive surprises later.
Where will you put it?
Perhaps more than any other, this decision can influence how much you use your deck for years to come. Is the planned area under trees where falling leaves and other debris are a concern? Is the ground level or will it need to be graded? Think about whether you want the deck up against your house or in another part of the yard.
What kind of materials do you want to use?
Today’s homeowners have multiple options available when it comes to decking materials. Wood remains a popular choice, but composite decking offers several benefits, including easy maintenance. There are also several choices for railing materials, such as wood, glass, composite and aluminum in a wide range of shapes and styles.
How do you want to customize it?
Innovative deck designs allow you to individualize your outdoor space according to your lifestyle and interests. Make it more accessible with stairs or ramps. Add built-in seating for entertaining or star-gazing. For properties with steep grades, consider a multi-level deck to get the most out of your yard.
