Materials

There are two main materials that you should consider when choosing for your deck. Each one has its own personality and feeling. There are benefits to each, but can all serve as a great hangout spot.

One popular choice of decking is composite decking. There are many great things about it, including it being eco-friendly since it is recycled wood and plastic. It looks modern and fits into any current home design. Composite decking has the lowest amount of maintenance of any material. This makes your life much easier because you will not have to fit in regular maintenance into your already full schedule. Washing your deck when it becomes dirty is the only upkeep you need, happening as little as two or three times a year. This strong material also has a very long life span, often lasting for more than 20 years. That means 20 years of making memories, without having to purchase a new deck.

Another great option for decking material is treated wood. This fantastic choice of material could exactly what you are looking for in terms of style and usability. The cost for wood decking is noticeably lower than that of composite decking. The look it creates can add a completely new look to your home or goes with the one you have, using a natural dark or light color to highlight your homes colors. Wood decking is very durable so there will not be any need to get a new one anytime soon. The maintenance required needs to happen every 1-2 years. It is the lowest costing deck, being about half of the other options.

Whenever deciding on which material to use, it is important to remember that our expert team can help you chose the best option for you. We start by doing an inspection of your property, desired style, and budget. We will inform you which material will work for the combination of the three.

Addable Structures

There are many structures that can be added to your deck, making it perfect for you. Each structure adds an extra look or function to make your deck more owner friendly. These structures include but are not limited to:

  • Arbors
  • Deck coverings
  • Deck lighting
  • Gazebos
  • Outdoor seating areas
  • Pergolas

With each structure adding a unique characteristic to your deck, it is easy to find the one you want. Of course, we can help you guide you in the right direction. It all depends on what style you want and what you are planning to do on your deck.

Arbors, pergolas, and deck coverings are great for creating an area to shield you from the sun. These structures are often held up with posts off the side of a walkway, keeping the path cool by blocking out sunlight. However, some tops do not fully cover the area, letting some sunlight through and allowing the sky to be visible while still providing some protection. These are very aesthetically pleasing because it creates dramatic lighting.

You will want to be able to get as much usage out of your deck as possible, meaning the ability to use it anytime. Many of our clients use their decks later in the day after returning home from a long day to kick back and relax. To get the most out of your deck at this time you’re going to need lighting. Not being able to see that book you’ve been waiting to read all day or it being too dark for you to feel comfortable is just not acceptable. Our deck lighting is the perfect solution to this problem because it will be personalized to the layout of your deck. After the sun goes down, the lights come into effect! This lighting creates a relaxing atmosphere that helps set the mood for socializing or lounging. When you use our services for lighting, it helps eliminate many problems. The biggest benefit is the wiring will be hidden so you do not have cords running all across your deck.
