Building a custom deck is one of the all-time favorite ways to expand your living space and adds great value to your home. Decks are relatively uncomplicated structures. That's not to say decks can't be complex structures or that they don't require careful planning. Just as with any other construction project, what you end up with is a direct result of what you put into it, even before you cut a board or drive the first nail.
Planning and Layout
Planning doesn't just mean calculating costs. Where and how you site a deck often determines how much enjoyment you’ll get out of it. The best decks are sited where they take advantage of all outdoor conditions instead of succumbing to them. Adding a deck immediately alters a home’s exterior design. The most successful plans take this into consideration and strive to complement a home’s style, size, exterior materials and even era of construction.
Don't rule out building a deck where you want just because a tree, rock, slope or any other obstacle stands in the way. Decks are often most attractive when they make use of difficult terrain features. A multilevel deck can easily “step” its way up or down even the steepest hillside. Creative framing allows you to build into or around large rocks that would otherwise be impossible to move. Trees are easily incorporated into a framing plan, even in the middle of a deck.
Remodeling Alliance can build a custom deck that compliments the style of your home. There are many different types of materials to choose from. Decks are made from a variety of building materials. In the past your choices were limited to pressure treated wood, cedar, or redwood. Today there are wide varieties of materials to select from. The options range from a wide variety of domestic lumber to composite decking made from recycled plastics. New products are flooding into the market every year.
The materials that you select must be able to withstand the powerful forces of nature over years of exposure to the elements. Factors such as severe temperature changes, intense sun, rain, snow, and wind will put any material to the test. And on top of everything else most people want their deck to be attractive and compliment their house and landscaping.
