Three Deck Considerations
Three Deck Considerations
When you think of a deck, a rectangle shaped addition is usually the first thing you think of. Although elevated rectangle decks are traditional, there are so many more deck options to choose from. You can create an outstanding deck design that will enhance the look of your home. You can create a personal architectural masterpiece that not only adds more functionality to your backyard but also add beauty and value. Choosing the right deck for your home can be an overwhelming choice, especially when you don’t know where to start. To help you create the perfect custom deck for your property, here are a few deck considerations you should consider:
Where The Deck Will Be Located
Homeowners thinking about replacing their decks usually want to replace their old ones and simply replace it. Although it may be the easy route, it does limit you on the design of the deck. You’ll just have the same one as before except with new materials. Even if you want the deck in the same location, it’s wise to change the design a bit as a way to reflect your lifestyle. You can add to the deck by opting for a wrap-around balcony or simply move it a bit to the left or right for some change from the old one to the new deck. But if you’re getting an entirely new deck, you’ll want to think about how you can fix common problems like a too sunny or too shady spot in your yard. A deck can fix these challenges when you take into consideration the location of where you want it.
What Will Go On Your Deck
You should always think about what you’re planning to place on your deck. Will you have a grill on it or maybe host outside parties? Knowing what you’re going to do with your deck will help you design the best one for your lifestyle and needs. For example, if you want to place a hot tub on it, you’ll have to consider the extra weight.
What Will Happen Under The Deck
The thing with decks is that you lose a huge part of your yard. However, if done right, that doesn’t have to be the case. You can still use the space under the deck, but you’ll need to think about what it will be used for before construction gets underway. You have a few options, including storage, a screen room, a play section for children, or a paved patio.
Once you take these three things into consideration, you’ll be able to design the deck of your dreams!
