Why Choose a Custom Deck?

When considering a deck for your home, choosing a custom option offers numerous advantages that can enhance your outdoor living experience. The benefits of a custom deck are many:

  • Personalize Based on Your Preferences: With a custom deck, you have the opportunity to personalize every aspect of your deck design to match your unique style and preferences. This means you can select specific materials, colors, and features that align with your vision, creating a space that truly feels like an extension of your home.
  • Maximize Your Outdoor Space: Custom decks can be tailored to fit the available space on your property, maximizing the outdoor area and ensuring that every square foot is utilized effectively. A sloped yard might be difficult to enjoy fully, but a deck can overcome some of the terrain issues.
  • Create Seamless Outdoor Flow: Custom decks can be designed to create a smooth transition between different outdoor areas, enhancing the overall functionality and appeal of your outdoor entertainment spaces. Multi-level decks allow for spaces to be used for designated purposes, like an outdoor kitchen, dining area, and relaxation area.
  • Increase Your Property’s Value: Investing in a custom deck can significantly increase the value of your property. A well-designed and expertly crafted deck adds both aesthetic appeal and functional outdoor living space, which can be a major selling point if you ever decide to put your home on the market.

Designing Your Dream Deck

To create your dream deck, take time to consider the intended use, such as entertaining, relaxing, or dining, in order to tailor the design to your specific needs and preferences.

When considering your deck’s layout, think about whether you want a single or multi-level deck, as well as the type of deck railings you want for added safety and aesthetic appeal.

Color choices play a significant role in the overall look and feel of your deck, so select colors that complement your home’s exterior and your personal style.

Lighting options are necessary for both functionality and ambiance, with choices ranging from built-in LED lights to spotlights to floodlights to solar lights to elegant string lights.

Maintenance considerations are important for the longevity of your deck, so think about materials that require minimal upkeep, like composite materials.

Also, proper budget planning ensures that you can achieve your dream deck without compromising on quality.

Selecting Your Decking Material

The main decking materials used for custom decks are natural wood and composite deck boards, though there has been a shift toward using composite materials.

Traditional Wood Decks

A wood deck offers the option of using hardwood or exotic woods, allowing for a choice based on the wood’s natural color, texture, cost, and availability.

When constructing custom decks with wood, there’s the flexibility to stain or paint the boards in preferred colors, and using a strong sealant is advisable to protect them from rain, wind, and sun.

The pros of wood decking include its natural and warm appearance, potential lower initial cost, and environmental friendliness if sourced sustainably. However, a wood deck does require regular maintenance and is prone to issues like rot, decay, insect damage, and can fade, warp, or splinter over time.

Popular Composite Decks

Composite decks, made from wood fiber and recycled plastic, present an eco-friendly decking option. Composite materials enable the creation of unique deck patterns, such as herringbone or chevron, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the outdoor space.

The advantages of composite decking are its lower maintenance requirements compared to wood, resistance to rotting, fading, staining, and splintering, often accompanied by longer warranties and greater longevity.

Composite materials generally have a higher initial investment, but their minimal maintenance needs can result in cost savings in the long run.

Maintenance Requirements

Natural wood requires periodic staining, sealing, and potential repairs due to weathering and insect damage.

Composite materials demand minimal maintenance, typically needing only occasional cleaning with soap and water to maintain their appearance.

Deck Features and Enhancements

As you explore what kind of design you want for your deck project, there are several deck features that will enhance the functionality and visual appeal of your chosen material, whether natural wood or composite:

  • Outdoor kitchen and dining area allows you to take the indoors outdoors and enjoy a meal with family or when entertaining friends and guests.
  • Built-in seating offers both convenience and a sleek look, seamlessly integrating with the overall design of the deck.
  • A fire pit can create a cozy gathering spot for cool evenings, adding warmth and ambiance.
  • Water features such as fountains or small ponds can bring a sense of tranquility to your outdoor space, creating a serene atmosphere.
  • Outdoor lighting not only extends the usefulness of the deck into the evening but also adds a touch of magic to the surroundings.
  • Privacy screens provide seclusion and create a more intimate setting for your deck, allowing you to fully relax and enjoy your outdoor space.
