Why You Need a Custom Deck for Summer
As the warm weather season approaches, we can’t help but dream of warm summer nights and outdoor entertaining. With barbecue and cookout season is just around the corner, now is the time to start planning for spring and summer by adding a deck to your home. Turning your backyard into a personal oasis is exciting and easy with a custom deck. Whether your summer nights are spent perfecting your grillmaster skills, or instead throwing extravagant Gatsby-style backyard parties, designing a custom deck that caters to your lifestyle is the foundation for creating your best summer yet.
Why You Need a Custom Deck
When it comes to designing custom decks, identifying the location of your addition and the purpose you wish for it to serve are the first steps in personalizing an entertainment space built for you. These two factors go hand in hand, and experts suggest you consider the location and purpose simultaneously at the beginning of the planning process. There aren’t too many options in where you can put a deck, and you may be confined to a specific location depending on your home, yard space, and county permit requirements. It’s imperative that you do your research and find out what is allowed in your area, especially if your residence is covenant controlled.
Many homeowners have hot tubs or fire pits that they hope to incorporate into their custom decks. Others simply want to host parties with large groups of people. Whatever your desires, determining the purpose for your addition will also determine the structure that needs to be built to support the weight. Identifying the purpose and therefore structure of your deck will lead you in the process of deciding shape, size and color of your custom addition.
Weighing all of these options, and knowing what you desire for your outdoor entertainment space will make the process of hiring a custom deck builder easy. Finding a quality contractor in late winter or early spring is your best option in getting your oasis built in time for the summer months. When doing your research, we suggest you shop around, get quotes, ask about the licensing and insurance that each builder has, and request references, reviews and photos of the contractor’s completed projects. Online reviews, and trusted references from friends and neighbors are great resources in narrowing your search.
Make this summer your best one yet by adding the entertainment addition of your dreams. Spending time outdoors just got a whole lot easier with a custom deck that is built to fit your lifestyle and specifications.
