Looking for contractors to build your next deck? The summer is creeping up and you’re probably getting a bit anxious to get started – I mean, what’s better than hosting friends and family to a summer day BBQ on your newly constructed deck. But wait…before you jump at the first contractor to knock on your door, let us provide you with some valuable information including the most popular decking materials, styles, and design inspiration. We consider ourselves the best deck builders in North Attleboro and surrounding towns because of our experience, quality of work, and creative style; however instead of boring you with a sales pitch we’d rather pour our knowledge into a blog article and let you decide.
Low Maintenance Decking Material
If you’re looking for a low maintenance, beautiful looking deck, highly consider composite decking. The new composite decking and railing materials maintain its color without the annual work of painting, staining, or sealing. It also resists warping, mildew, insects (including termites), and rotting. For those reasons alone, it’s why so many homeowners in North Attleboro choose a composite brand. The only downside to composite decking is its cost. However, when you consider the maintenance time and costs over a couple years – it certainly pays for itself over and over again.
Finding the Best Warranty
Composite decking materials typically come with a pretty good warranty, many offering around 25-years of coverage. Some manufacturers also offer second homeowner warranties which means you can pass the warranty off to someone you’re selling your house to; a great selling point.
Increasing Value to Your Home
You’re not just adding value to your living; building a composite deck adds value to your home as well. Cost vs. Value reports estimate a national average of 71% return on investment for composite deck additions. That’s a huge ROI when you consider the more popular renovations like baths and kitchens average around the same.
Deck Design Inspiration
Simple yet beautiful. It’s small yet perfectly fit, nestled between two sides of the house. Not every deck needs to be “decked up” (excuse the pun) to scream perfection. This deck is simple, functional, and offers a minimalist design with blending surface colors encased by pure white trim.
For one that does call for a party sized deck. This large composite deck is elevated to meet with the screen porch, safely enclosed by heavy-duty railings and winding steps that reach the backyard.
Get creative with diagonal deck installation. Many homeowners choose to go with a vertical or horizontal layout simply because there is less material waste. However, if you can swing the extra few bucks, get creative with a diagonal pattern that will make your deck truly a piece of art.
Add a Cape Cod feel to your backyard. You might not have the ocean to compliment this beach-side composite deck, but a few simple features can really add a Cape Cod beach feel. Contrast is one of them. Pure white trim and adirondack chairs contrasting with a darker deck surface will make you feel like you’re at the yacht club. The only thing missing is a summer martini. This deck also boasts a stainless cable railing which adds a nice touch – safety but high view visibility. Add downward lighting to the top railing which will reflect off the stainless cables at night.
This deck has built-in seating that wraps the entire surface of the deck. This is a cool feature because it allows for plenty of seating for parties without the clutter of chairs. The deck seating can be built with the same materials that you use for the deck itself.
Deck stairs can often be the “centerpiece” of the overall design. This amazing staircase is built with composite decking, white trim to offer contrast, and integrated lights that are not only functional but literally and figuratively make the staircases glow. If you get the days sunlight, install solar powered lighting.
