Make the Most of Your Backyard
with a New Deck
A lot of life happens on your deck. It's where you can sit and enjoy your property. You can watch your kids play, enjoy an evening with family and friends, or grill out to celebrate a birthday.
Maybe you'd like to have a deck to enjoy the outdoors early in the morning while you have a cup of coffee or tea.
But all of these moments are built around a deck that you love to use. So if you have a deck but don't like it, it could be time to replace it. Or, maybe it's time for a new home improvement project, and a deck is one of the things on your list.
Things to Think About When Building a Deck
Let's talk through what you should keep in mind when building a new deck or porch.
Consider how it will fit into your current home space. For example, you may need to work around trees or property lines.
Take some time to think about how you'll use the deck. If you plan to entertain often, you'll likely want room for people to relax comfortably and space for you to serve food or cook outdoors.
Next, you'll want to consider a decking material. Wood is a traditional choice. There are also great composite options, like Trex decking. Trex is built to look like wood but is resistant to rot and termites. If you prefer a wood grain style, you can order Trex decking wood imitation.
If you're in an area that is shady or prone to dampness, some materials may have more mold and mildew that require regular cleaning.
As you think through each part of the process, don't forget the cost to build a deck. Your square footage and materials cost will be the main determining factor of what you'll pay.
