Deck Installation: 4 Factors to Consider When Installing a New Deck

4 Factors to Consider When Installing a New Deck

There are four main areas you will need to think about when planning a deck installation: location, style, budget, and maintenance.

  1. Location – Where will you place your deck? Will it face south or north? Is there shade nearby? How close is the house to the street? Are there trees nearby? All these questions will affect the amount of space you need for your deck.
  2. Style – Do you prefer modern, traditional, or contemporary designs? There are many different styles available including board & batten, gable roof, flat roof, cantilever, arched, curved, etc. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some styles work well with certain types of homes while others look better in some locations than others. For example, a gable roof may not look good if it’s too low to the ground.
  3. Budget – How much money do you have to spend? Decks come in all shapes and sizes so you’ll need to make sure you’re getting the right one for your home and lifestyle. You can save money by choosing an inexpensive option but remember that an inexpensive deck won’t last as long as a more expensive one.
  4. Maintenance – How often will you use your deck? How big is it going to be? How old is it? These three questions will help you determine how often you’ll need to maintain your deck.

Once you’ve answered those questions, you’ll know exactly what you need to do to get started with your deck installation.
