Room to Breathe

When you’ve got a well-designed deck, it’s more than just a place to sit on a pleasant evening. It functionally extends the usable living space in your home during the summer, giving you plenty of room to stretch out as a family or to entertain guests.

And your deck doesn’t just have to be an extension of your patio. Today’s homeowners are going bigger and better when it comes to their decks. Here are just a few popular layouts homeowners are embracing:

●        Raised or second-story decks

●        Multi-level decks

●        Pergolas

●        Several access points

●        Built-in gardens and planters

●        Outdoor cooking areas

●        Outdoor bars

Reimaging an Old Deck

If you’ve got an older, outdated deck and you plan to spend much time outdoors, it’s important to make sure it’s safe to use, especially before inviting guests to your home. Have a general contractor check the condition of the existing wood. Over time, mildew, mold, and rot can cause poorly sealed wood to deteriorate. Does any of your wood need to be replaced? Are the railings safe for use?

Consider Function

Before getting started on your deck remodeling project, think about how you would best make use of the space. Although a bar or outdoor fireplace may sound like a cool concept, it can end up being an extra chore to clean and maintain if you’re not getting much use out of these features. Focus on the essentials you know your family will enjoy like a comfortable outdoor seating area and grill.
