Picking out the material for your deck installation is essential to begin any project. You have multiple choices from wood, composite material, plastic, and vinyl. Wood is a classic look, is pricier, and requires maintenance, staining, and sealing. Composite material is a combination of wood, plastic, and glue and requires less maintenance than wood. Decks can be made from plastic or vinyl which have to maintenance but can be damaged by extreme weather and heat.
Your deck can be more than a place to keep the patio furniture. There are several creative projects from outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, poolside decks, water fountains, and more. Each amenity that requires electricity or plumbing will need to be planned first to make sure it is included in your deck plan and construction.
Your deck will have stairs built on a concrete pad, at least 3-foot railing for safety, design, and structure, and posts every few feet and at every corner. With all that said, all those details can be customized with different colors, details, placement, and materials. Talk to your handyman to see their options and to create your dream deck. Details such as post caps can be put on top of your posts to keep the moisture out. These can be decorative from different shapes and colors.
