Factors to Consider While Building a New Deck

A deck is a major investment that demands your absolute attention. If you want your deck to last, you must take your time choosing the colors, finishes and features. This apart, you have to consider the aspects of space, utility, location, safety, weather, and style as well. Maintaining your deck is the key to keeping its appearance in top shape.

Because decks are subject to weather elements, such as sun, snow, ice, and wind, it is important to choose a material and finish that you can successfully maintain. At Advance Remodeling, we work closely with you to come up with innovative ideas so you move one step closer to the deck of your dreams. Here’s what we take into account:

Available Space

Before selecting the decking materials and style, we invest considerable time studying your home and the area surrounding it. Accordingly, we figure out the space available for your new deck and plan out the size of it. Should there be any obstruction in the yard that might interfere with the construction, we either have them removed or build the deck around them at your discretion.

Utility

Once the space is planned and the desired size specified, we will then discuss the utility of your deck. Think about what you will be using it for – whether for entertainment, relaxation, leisure, or just to increase the space.

Location

Where you wish to build your deck would depend on how much privacy you want. In case of limited privacy, we suggest you plant some high trees around your deck that will help block the view. The location will also depend on the amounts of shade and sunlight we need and how people will access your deck. It will either be attached to the side of your home or have stairs to get to it.

Safety

You need to consider safety because decks can be dangerous, especially if you have children at home. We recommend you choose an open or an enclosed deck. Also, consider installing railings if yours is a deck high off the ground.

Weather

Since your deck is outside 24/7, it is subject to all the weather elements from the sun to snow. If you live in areas with heavy snow or ice, your deck may need extra support to hold the extra weight. At Advance Remodeling, we help you choose materials that can withstand all weather conditions.

Style

Most people want a deck that will match their home. At Advance Remodeling, we can add personal style to your deck with complementing railings, stairways, and you own deck décor. For more information, check the “Creating Your Dream Outside Living Area” section of this guide.

Wood Decks

Wood decks are traditional. Wood gives you unlimited design options and can be painted or stained to match your home. However, wooden decks require regular maintenance. Because of its exposure to moisture, we use pressure-treated wood to prevent decay and termite infestation.

Composite Decks

Composite decking comprises synthetic plastic and real wood fiber. This combination makes for a strong and durable decking material with the look of natural wood but without the maintenance. Composite decking does not splinter and lasts longer. Furthermore, this material is eco-friendly owing to its high level of recycled content.

Vinyl Decks

A favorite at Advance Remodeling, vinyl decks are affordable and durable. These decks come in almost all colors and do not need to be stained or painted. Although they are not natural wood, they can be made to mimic it. Vinyl decks are safe because of their slip-resistant finish in the rain and resistance to heat build-up during warm weather. They are splinter-free and low maintenance.
