A New Deck For Your Residential Property

Home & Garden Blog

A new deck will serve as an entertainment platform. A hardwood deck can be used to support barbecue efforts, movie viewing sessions, or birthday party celebrations. Your deck builder will be responsible for preparing your land, devising a building plan, and installing the new deck.

Land Preparation

Your deck builder will need to know how large you would like the deck to be. This includes acquiring information about the height of the new feature. Before a deck can be built, any existing structures that are on the property will need to be removed. If your home already has a deck attached to it, a deck builder may provide teardown services. Teardown services will involve disassembling an existing deck and hauling off the materials that it was constructed of.

If you do not have a deck on your property, trees, shrubs, and other foliage that is near where the deck is going to be located may need to be pruned. Loose items on your property should be moved away from where the deck construction will take place. The land below the deck will need to be stable.This may necessitate a grading and tamping process.

Design And Build Steps

A deck builder has carpentry skills. The builder will design your deck in its entirety. First, they may use software to prepare a diagram. If the type of software that the builder has access to uses 3D technology, you will be provided with a visual display of how your deck will look. It can be difficult to mentally determine if there will be enough room for the furnishings, barbecue materials, and other items that you plan on setting up on your deck.

By having a 3D display to refer to, the deck builder you hire can make modifications to the plans, if the initial plans will not support the layout you prefer. A deck builder will order enough wood to build the deck, steps, and railing pieces. A deck builder will utilize some safety guidelines, to ensure that the railings and steps comply with regional building codes.

Your deck can be stained or painted. Coating wood with stain or paint will beautify the deck and preserve hardwood. Decay, mildew, and pest infestations are often associated with wooden surfaces that are not treated. After your deck has been stained or painted, you can set up the items that will be used on the new surface.
