This relatively simple home improvement expands the practical area of your home and allows you to enjoy your property from a new perspective impossible to achieve while sitting in the middle of your lawn. A deck provides the perfect spot for entertaining guests, cooking for your family, or just simple quite reflection.

Outdoor space offers aesthetic benefits. Decks and patios are natural extensions of gardens, landscaping, and pool areas and not only make your environment more beautiful, but also more practical. A deck can offer a perfect solution for steeply sloped properties or other conditions in your back yard that hinder your enjoyment. Not to mention, the increase in value your home will acquire along with the addition!

A new deck requires a solid plan of action

Every home improvement project needs a well thought out plan. Deck builders at Montchanin will need to know the answers to some very basic questions to get your plan off the ground. For example, homeowners need to consider:

  • What will you use your deck for?
  • How large would like it to be? (what is the smallest size you would accept?)
  • What is your budget?
  • What shape appeals to you?
  • Would you prefer single or multiple levels?
  • Will there be more than one access to your home from the deck?
  • Will it tie in with another outdoor feature of your home, like a garden, landscaping or pool?
  • How high off the ground will it be?
  • What colors do you like?
  • Do you want the decking to be made of synthetic materials or exotic hardwoods?

Modern trends in deck building

overview of deck additionOutdoor living trends have brought many features commonly found inside the home outside. With modern low voltage lighting, fire pits, outdoor kitchens (including grills, cook tops, countertops and refrigerators), bars, awnings and comfortable, durable outdoor furniture, a deck can be your virtual living/dining space when the weather’s nice. To accommodate these features, planning and sufficient space are required.

Decking itself has never been more widely available in such a broad range of colors and materials. Maintenance concerns, environmental interests and simple matters of taste tend to influence the home owner’s ultimate choice.

We will put together a plan that will meet your needs, budget and building codes. With that plan in place, we can start putting together a safe and durable deck that will increase the enjoyment you get from your home and improve its value.

Deck construction

Montchanin’s own deck builders can create a deck that is very complex or simple, depending on your needs. Basically a deck is created in the following steps:

  • For decks attached to the home, construction begins with removal of siding and attaching supports to the house frame
  • Creation of concrete footings in the ground and attach posts
  • Build the framework by attaching beams and erecting supporting posts
  • Decking material is then screwed into the beams and stairs (if any)
  • Install railings

When constructing a deck, our top priority is to build one that is stronger than it needs to be. It will be able to withstand many years of intense weather conditions and other wear and tear.
