Deck Installation: Factors to Consider Before Replacement

If you have already decided that you want to install a deck on your home, you should contact one of our home improvement experts. Our company has been building decks for our clients for decades. We can help you choose the materials as well as the layout of your new deck.

Depending on when you want your professional deck installation completed, you probably should call her office now. We like to offer our customers a free estimate which will take place at your home or in our office. If you’re serious about having a deck installed, then you should probably meet with one of our home improvement experts at your house. This way they can survey the land and get a feel for what they will be working with. They can also discuss such matters as price and budget with you at that time.

Where Do You Want to Have the Deck Installed?

Most of our clients have their decks installed in their backyard. This is something you want to give some thought to. Depending on the layout of your home and your outdoor property, you may have more than one place to install a deck. For example, if you have a large property to the left or right of your home, you may want to have a deck installed there.

Other people like to have a wraparound deck installed around the back of their home. It really comes down to where you like to spend your outdoor time. If you’re looking to have a deck for parties and to eat dinner, it would be in your best interest to have it installed in the back. However, you may have reasons to want the deck installed out front. All these things come into play when you meet with your home improvement expert.

 

Do You Know What Materials You Want to Use?

You have probably already given this some thought, but make sure you have an idea of what materials you want to use. Years ago, your only option if you wanted to have a new deck installed was to use wood. While plenty of our clients still use this material, there are other options available today. The type of material that you choose will depend on several things including:

  • the weather and climate where you live
  • the size of your deck
  • type of wall you will be attaching the deck to
  • the amount of open space you have in your backyard
  • how long you plan on keeping the deck

Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive. There are many other things that could impact the type of material you choose. That’s why we suggest that you schedule your free estimate with one of our home improvement experts sooner rather than later.

When Are You Looking to Have the Professional Deck Installation Done?

Some people think that you should only get exterior home improvements done in the warm months. The truth is that our home improvement experts work on projects throughout the year. This includes professional deck installations. Despite what many people think, sometimes it is preferable to have your new deck put on in the fall or winter months. Not only is the weather cooler, but you don’t have to worry so much about humidity affecting the materials. Plus, the ground is a lot harder, so you don’t have to worry about any other materials sinking too far into the ground.

Of course, if you are looking to have your professional deck installation completed before the summer season, you don’t want to waste any time contacting our office. It will take a couple of months to complete the deck, depending on the size. You also want to give it some time to settle before you start hosting big parties. It would be in your best interest to have the deck complete prior to the end of winter so that you have plenty of time to get it ready for the summer. Even though contractors are a little less busy this time of year, you don’t want to wait until the last minute to try to book your time. We suggest that you call and speak with one of our home improvement experts as soon as possible and schedule your free estimate.

Are You Going to Need Trees or Other Greenery Cleared Out to Make Room for a Deck?

Depending on where you live, you may have a lot of trees behind your home. In order to install the deck and get the permit, the people handling your professional deck installation will need to clear those trees. The same is true for any brush or bushes that are growing back there. It’s also important that you’re aware of where your property line is. The last thing you want to do is have your deck extend over the border to your neighbor’s home. It’s also important that you and your contractor map out the plan for the deck before they start working.
