Experienced Deck Builders

Many industrious homeowners consider taking on the project of building their own deck because they look like simple wooden platforms, or having a general contractor do the work for them. But choosing dedicated experts to build a deck is a better use of your time and your money and will result in a better quality deck. We take deck building seriously.

A new deck is not only a quality improvement to your home, but can give you ample space for outdoor entertaining with friends and family.

However, take a look through your local building codes or a best practices guide and you’ll find that there is much more to creating a deck than you might imagine. These details are what separates a high-quality deck from one that will begin to rot right away. The team at Soto Bay Construction is dedicated to these details and creating a stable, beautiful deck every time. See why our experience makes all the difference.

  • Lighting: While general contractors are busy with project management, they might forget lighting. It is truly one of the most impactful additions to a deck, however. Lighting improves safety, looks, and makes the deck more functional when the sun is down.

Things to Consider for Your Deck

While a deck is not an undertaking quite like an ADU, many contractors still underestimate them. We don’t. We know that you want a deck that will enrich your outdoor space. Something that will be low-maintenance and last for years. We take the time to design and build a deck that will meet all your needs and wants. Here are some things we should consider together for your deck:

  • Safety: Depending on the elevation of your deck, railings might be a requirement. But even if they’re not, new railings, balusters, and post caps can make your deck both safer and more attractive.
  • Privacy: Will your deck have enough privacy? We can add privacy features to make it more comfortable.
  • Materials: Decking material choice is very important in deck building. Should you choose a wood or a composite? Pressure treated? Stained? We can help you assess your budget and style needs to choose a deck board style you’ll cherish.
  • Space and elevation: Where should your deck go? Will it need to have an unusual space or curves? Should it have levels to take advantage of elevation changes in your yard or make separate spaces for separate purposes?

We’ll help you answer these and other questions about your deck build and create a space that you’ll be happy with for the long term. All of our decks are built with pressure-treated joists, deep foundations, sturdy framing, and high-quality fasteners to ensure a safe, long-lasting deck.
