Building a deck may seem like a relatively easy job but there are many local construction codes to consider and a professional is the best way to handle it. There are obvious safety concerns involved when installing any type of structure on your property so a dependable licensed contractor with experience and the right tools and equipment can finish the job safely and in a reasonable amount of time.
Each deck is unique
For every home, a deck construction project involves a different set of conditions. Your choice of materials is just one option that needs to be considered. To ensure sturdiness, the ground needs to be evaluated and the proper footings installed. Running electrical lines or plumbing adds another set of challenges that require experience and know-how. Handicap accessibility or other safety features beyond what is required by building codes create still more requirements that must be handled properly. Given all these considerations, leaving the details to a professional is a wise decision that will save you time and probably money in the long run. This is especially true when you call All Services Property Maintenance. As a full service contractor and a licensed home inspector, we know all the rules and regulations and have plenty of experience to build your deck right.
There is more to deck construction than you think
Not only is each home unique, the personality of the home owner and the intended uses for the deck are also quite diverse. Depending on your needs, interests and the amount of space you have available, there are many different ideas to consider.
- Natural wood, composite or synthetic construction materials
- Steps and other access considerations
- Railings – traditional, glass, vinyl, cables and more
- Overhead construction – pergola – for shade, lighting, fans, hanging plants
- Unique shapes or varied levels
You may also want to keep in mind the addition of a hot tub or spa, a grill or fire pit and seating or the possibility of an enclosure to protect you from the elements.
