ALL CONTRACTORS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! SEE WHAT SETS US APART FROM THE COMPETITION?

Size
When planning the size of your deck, you need to consider three design factors and keep them in balance:

How are you planning to use the deck?
A deck off of your living room that will be used for entertaining needs to be much larger than a secluded and private deck you add to your master suite.


How much space is available to use?
Part of this question is about the size of your yard, usable area, and possible obstructions like trees or boulders. The other part of this is a question about the permit you can acquire to build a deck:

Can you acquire a permit for the size deck you want or will you need to modify your plans?
Your deck should appear to be in proportion with your house. When the project is complete, the deck should look like a logical and beneficial addition to your home. If the scale of the project is either too small or too large, it could look disproportionate to your house. A deck should also be proportional to your yard. If you are adding a deck so you and your guests can enjoy your beautiful yard, you cannot have the deck take up half the yard.


Materials
Wood is still the most common material used to build decks in Fayetteville, but wood is starting to be replaced or supplemented by new materials in patio and deck construction. Here is a list of commonly used materials:

Wood: Until recently, all decks were constructed almost entirely of wood. Because of the exposure to moisture, most wood used for decks is pressure-treated wood. Pressure-treated wood is exposed to chemicals under pressure, and the chemicals prevent decay and termite damage, and can dramatically reduce repairs of your deck.

Composite Decking: Composite decking is a combination of wood pulp and plastic. It is looks like wood and is lower maintenance than wood. Composite decking lacks the strength of wood, and long pieces of composite decking used as floorboards require more closely spaced supports. Composite material is not generally used for the main supports pieces of a porch or deck, but is used in combination with pressure-treated wood.


Access
How many points of access you plan for your deck will impact its appearance and function. A deck usually has steps to the yard and access to the front or back door of the home. However, if you are installing a wrap-around deck, it is ideal to plan at least one additional entrance to and from the house, as we have as at least one additional set of stairs to the yard. Fayetteville homeowners commonly add decks to the living room, the recreation room, or the master bedroom to function as an extension of the room. However, it is often necessary to install a door to provide access to the deck, and stairs from the deck to the yard. The door will often be made of glass, to present an inviting image of the deck from the room. If space permits, the use of either sliding or French double doors is also common.

Pressure-treated Lumber- Least expensive (Pine or Fir)
Rot-resistant Wood- High End quality (Cedar, Cypress, Redwood)
Synthetic Materials- Least amount of maintenance (Plastic, Rubber, Vinyl Lumber)
