Features to Consider Before Your Deck Building Project

Deck building requires preparation; you can’t just start without a clear plan and expect it to go well. That means there are several things you need to consider prior to the deck building process, including:

  • Shape & Size – It’s important to decide how large your deck is going to be and what shape it will take. This decision will likely be informed by how much space you have in your yard and where you plan to build the deck within it. Your budget might also influence your decision since a larger deck will inevitably cost more due to the increased materials and labor involved.
  • Materials – Most people think of wooden decks when the topic of deck building comes up, but there are many options available. There are many types of wood available for decks, including pressure-treated wood, and there are also composite decking materials that require less maintenance.
  • Lighting – Unless you never plan to use your deck at night, you’ll need to incorporate lighting. You might consider post lights, rail lighting, or even string lights, depending on the ambience you prefer.
