What to consider before hiring a deck builder
A deck builder can help you put your plan into action, but before you get started, you’ll need to have some sort of plan in mind. Here’s what you should ask yourself before reaching out.
- How large do I want my deck to be?
Mapping out the rough dimensions of your deck can help give your deck builder an idea of the scope of the project. Take some time to evaluate the space you have on hand. How do you want to use it? If you have a large yard, then it may not be difficult to decide what space you’ll use. However, if your yard is relatively small, then dedicating a portion of it to the deck is more significant. For most homeowners, this ties into how they see their deck being used once it’s built.
- How many levels do I want my deck to be?
Decks can be single or multiple levels. Depending on your home and backyard, you may consider making it a more complex add-on. Some people create multiple deck areas and connect them or integrate them into existing features in their yard like a pool or garden.
The best way to approach this question is by looking at your backyard as a whole. You want your deck to become a seamless part of your backyard. What existing features will it need to blend with, and how can you do that most cohesively?
- What materials do I prefer?
What do you want the design of your deck to look like? In the past, pressure-treated wood was the only choice for an outdoor deck. Now, you’ll have a wider variety of materials to choose from. While pressure-treated wood is still a popular choice, there are some plastic and wood fiber alternatives. Do a little research and figure out what you like best as well as what’s best for the weather in your area.
- What types of features do I hope to incorporate?
There are so many options when installing a deck. If you want a fire pit, water feature, built-in seating, etc., then your deck building can find a way to make it happen. Look at a bunch of different designs and figure out what you like best.
If you begin looking at a bunch of different designs and you’re feeling especially lost, don’t worry! Building Character in Cincinnati can help you evaluate, design, and construct your deck. Reach out to them for more information. Not knowing where to start isn’t a reason not to build a deck. Reach out for help so the experts can jump-start the process for you.
