    Three questions to ask yourself before planning your deck project:

    1) How much?

    From the beginning, you should zero in on your budget for the project. It doesn’t have to be the final figure, but a ballpark estimate will help you choose materials and design. Have you planned enough space for what will be on the deck?

    2) What for?

    Build your deck to fit what you’ll keep there. It may look like a large space while empty, but be sure to get the measurements of your grill, table and chairs, pergola, canopy, benches, planters, hot tub, or whatever else you imagine – and remember that you need space to walk between these elements.

    3) Where in?

    When you build your deck, will it be in the sun or the shade? Will it cast shade on anything nearby? How much privacy will you have? Where does the breeze usually come from, and what will your view be?

    There are many new products and applications available to complete your deck. Wood vs. composites? Screws vs. hidden fasteners? The decisions go on and on, but the path becomes clearer after you download our “Building a Deck” guide or visit our deck and railing showroom. Our knowledgeable staff will explain all your options with experience and clarity. We are experienced in ordering from a wide range of decking materials.
