Inspiration: We recommend gaining inspiration for your new or remodel deck project by considering the surroundings of the area that you designate for the project, is it a
green area or maybe a more urban setting. Viewing photos showcasing in our custom-designed decks, pergolas, railings, stairs, and other features can give you some starter ideas.
Form & Function: Determine what it is you really want or need from your new deck. Are you looking for a place to entertain
outdoors, a private oasis, or an extension of living space? What is the largest number of people you would like to entertain? How are you going to most often use the deck? what are important
access points and high trafic pasages? Reflecting on the form and function of your new deck will help facilitate the design process and get at a
design that works with your specific house and needs.
Budget: Dreaming about your new deck will surely inspire grand ideas with a no-holds-barred attitude. Consider this when thinking about costs: a simple deck with
limited features can cost anywhere from $20-$50 per square foot (depending on many factors). Additional features, such as pergolas, fences, railings, stairs, gazebos, and fire pits can add to the budget. We've seen all kinds of shapes and sizes of decks in our business and we can assure you, even the most simplest in design
are stunning additions to a home.
Size: Your new deck should complement your backyard space, not overwhelm it. Think about the layout of your backyard, the currently
utilized space, whether you want the deck to be attached to your home, or set apart from it.
Materials: When considering which decking material you should choose, be it IPE, RED BALAU, TREX, or RESYSTA remember the following: it should aesthetically complement your home and your personal
style, offer long-term value and be as maintenance-free as possible.
