What to Consider When Building a Deck

A deck can be an excellent addition to any home. The precise dimensions and style of your deck will vary based on your needs and the size and configuration of your property. But whether you are building a small deck or a large, multi-level deck, there are a few factors to take into consideration.

First, you need to plan a deck that won’t clash with your existing home. A smaller home requires a smaller deck. If you want more space, consider multiple smaller decks. A larger home can accommodate a larger deck, though you may want to consider differentiating parts of your deck that will have different uses. A hot tub requires additional square footage. If you intend to use your deck for hosting parties, consider 15 to 20 square feet per person you plan to host. And don’t forget to include room for your grill or an outdoor kitchen, as well as seating and eating areas.

Second, you need to decide on a material for your deck. Pressure-treated pine is a common and low-cost material that holds up well with consistent maintenance. Cedar costs a bit more but is also more durable. If you’re looking for lower maintenance, consider composite decking material. And if you’re ready to spend a bit more, hardwoods and specialty woods can provide a unique and beautiful appearance.

Finally, you need to find the right builder to complete your project. When searching for a contractor, make sure you check on their ratings and references. Also, ask to see proof of their licensing and insurance. It is also a good idea to seek out two or three quotes before you pick a builder. Of course, if you’re looking for a builder you can trust, look no further than TrustDALE and Welcome Mid-South Fence and Decks, your trusted builder in the Nashville area.
