The plain, square decks in some backyards might convince you that’s your only option. But, decks can be more interesting and add more value to your home too. There is lots of room to experiment with decks, including choosing unusual materials, building multiple levels, adding privacy features and incorporating the deck with a pool or a garden. Smartly designed decks can fulfil multiple needs, easily transitioning from a big pool party to an intimate evening with just you and your special someone.
Our process for designing a deck is to focus on your needs and wants to narrow down on deck basics, including size and shape. Then we work upwards, planning the details of your foundation, supports, wood or composite, and finishes. We might also add stairways, pergolas, lights, electrical outlets and other practical features.
