A brand new deck can be a wonderful addition to your home. You can use it to relax, entertain your guests and to spend quality time with your family. You’ll need to keep a few things in mind when preparing for this project, however. In this article, V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, the top deck builder and siding contractor in our area, explains the things you need to consider before building a deck.
1. Budget – The cost of your new deck will depend on several factors including the intricacy of the design, the size, the contractor you choose for your project, the materials and the extras you may want to build along with it.
2. Purpose – As an expert in decks and vinyl siding, we recommend thinking carefully about how you plan to use your deck once it is built. Will you use your deck for entertaining your guests? Will you use it for gardening? Do you need a lot of privacy? Do you plan on dining on your deck?
3. Location – If you have a lot of room to work with, then you need to choose the spot for your new deck carefully. You should consider the sun, shade, wind, snow, rain and the size of your lot. The view is also important if you want to maximize the beauty of the space.
4. Materials and Design – Wood is the most popular decking material, but there are excellent alternatives like composite, plastic and aluminum. There are also many different types of wood for decking including hardwoods, pressure-treated woods and weather-resistant woods. The design and shape of your deck will depend on your budget and the design of your house.
