New Deck Construction: A Few Things to Consider

New Deck Construction

A brand new deck is a great way to extend your current living space into the outdoors. However, before you do it, here are a few things you’ll want to consider:

1. Build Levels.

If you’re looking to add more room, you may want to consider going above (or below) and beyond the traditional platform. For even more room and visual interest, you could have two or three levels constructed. This allows congregation among guests in smaller groups during gatherings and parties, while also providing plenty of options for cozy relaxation.

2. Conceal Supports.

Although it may not bother some homeowners, other homeowners are disgusted at the thought of screw heads being seen throughout their decking. If this is you, you may want to consult with your contractor and see about having hidden fasteners used during the construction of your deck. This leaves your deck with a simple and clean appearance.

3. Material Options.

When it comes to a deck, there are a lot of options to choose from for the materials. If you like real wood, you may want to consider redwood or pressure-treated cedar. Alternatively, jarrah and ipe hardwood are becoming popular and are essentially in a league of their own with a rich, luxurious appearance and longevity. However, these hardwoods are more expensive than traditional woods.

If you aren’t a fan of wood, you may want to consider composite and synthetic decking, such as vinyl. These are becoming very popular among homeowners who want a deck that doesn’t require consistent maintenance. Again, vinyl is more expensive than wood, but the ROI (return on investment) is much higher.

4. Beautiful Railings.

For the railings of your deck, you don’t have to stick to the traditional wood or vinyl that you are using for the surface of your deck. Instead, there are numerous innovative and creative options that you can put to use on your deck. You can opt for metal, glass, cabling or a combination of these as alternatives to the traditional railings, any of which would have a significant impact on the visual appearance of your deck.
