In addition, when setting walls we use custom lattice together with a pergola or patio.
What Should You Consider During the Deck Design Phase?
An area of your home that may not be otherwise utilized can be your haven through the installation of a deck. If the perimeter around your home varies in terms of the ground level, then it’s highly likely that there are parts of your home that are non-functional. It’s possible to create space and bring functionality in such areas by adding a raised deck. Our team of craftsmen can bring your dreams to life and increase the value of your home. It’s imperative to keep your budget into consideration when determining the type of material, you should go with. You can either choose low-maintenance ones like composite or aesthetic choices. Though expensive materials have a higher upfront cost, the recurrent maintenance cost is much lower.
Materials We Use for Deck Additions and Renovations
The kind of materials you choose for your deck will determine the longevity of your deck and the need for maintenance. Other key factors in deciding which wood you’ll use are durability and environmental issues such as aridity and humidity. All this are factors that will determine how your deck ages. There is a wide variety of materials in the market to choose from for the construction of your deck. At Double Oak Construction, we offer a diverse array of high-quality decking materials for our esteemed customers depending on the deck design. We make our clients a part of every step of the construction including making the choice of material. We can accommodate you on any material you desire. On your new deck, we might use redwood, cedar, composites, PVC-based materials and numerous other woods.
All these materials have their own distinct advantages. For instance, wood is less expensive and this helps lower the total construction cost. Therefore, you can be able to get a high-quality deck at a lower price. Wood also creates a classic look and feel. If your home is traditional looking or older, natural looking wood will perfectly compliment that look. The wood can as well be stained to compliment the look of a more modern home. It’s also worth noting that your deck will last longer without frequent repairs and replacement when treated. This is because it becomes resistant to bug infestation, rotting, and fungus.
Composite decks mimic the look of wood while minimizing the downsides. Composites are highly durable since they are made from synthetic materials that are highly resistant to wear and tear. The material is also more resistant to weather elements and rotting when compared to traditional wood. There is no need to apply stain or paint on composite decks because the material comes pre-colored. This saves your time and money.
A PVC-derived material is safe for children and pets because it does not break apart. There will be no need to worry about splinters and you can let your kids and pets move freely without anxiety. The material is highly durable with a lifetime warranty and resistant to mold, moisture, scratch, stain, split, and insects.
Our trained consultants are ready to assist and guide you through the various options of materials that can be used to construct and remodel your deck. We can use our deep experience to help you choose what will best meet your needs and style.
Benefits of Adding a Deck to Your Home or Remodeling an Existing One
Whether you plan to live in your house forever or sell it at some point, there are different benefits associated with adding a new deck and these include:
- Aesthetic Appeal
A deck addition can improve the design of your home, enhancing its overall quality and making it more visually appealing. A deck can easily add dimension to your yard and this will make your home stand out. Whatever your preferences are, you can stain your deck to fit the color scheme of your home and make it more appealing and natural.
- Increased Home Value
A deck is a huge selling point if you’re planning to sell your house in the future. A well-maintained deck can increase your home’s value and its salability as well. Compared to other home additions such as a sunroom, extra bathroom or even a room addition, the value that a deck can bring to your home is much higher. Therefore, a deck addition or renovation can bring a better return than almost any other home improvement project.
- Ideal for Entertaining Guests
Whether you’re having summertime birthday parties of backyard barbeques, decks are absolutely a great addition. All you’ll need is a stereo, grill, lawn chairs and your guests and family. Your house can be the place to be simply because you have a deck. It’s always exciting to sit out on a deck, whether to just relax, catch some sun, or eat and laugh with your loved ones. With a deck in your home, you can create memories for your family and friends for years to come.
- Quick to Build
Most home projects come with a lot of noise and disturbance, but this is usually not the case with deck construction and remodeling. Deck construction can take as little as a week’s time to be completed. This makes it easy to live within the home while the project is ongoing. The key here, however, is to find a contractor who will deliver quality workmanship and clean the trash and debris within the agreed timeline.
