Here, we will walk you through a few details to help you get on your way to starting the deck installation or addition process.
One of the first steps in building a deck is figuring out the design. One will need to know exactly what its structure is before cutting any wood. Decks come in varying height levels, depending on the elevation of the entryway. A deck elevation usually falls into one of three categories: ground-level, mid-level, and high elevation.
Next, your deck designer can help you determine the ideal deck platform shape, potential multiple deck levels, and the position and design of the staircase. The deck’s shape, number of levels, and stair location will depend on both the deck elevation and the shape of the property.
Lastly, you can add embellishments such as the pattern on the deck floor and the deck railing style. At this point, you can also select one or more colors that will suit your property best.
Quality Deck Materials
Albaugh & Sons is proud to provide quality deck materials and a variety of options, those being wood, composite, and vinyl. Lumber for decks comes in different species and grades. Different common wood species used for decks include pressure-treated pine, cedar, cypress, redwood, and exotic hardwood. The higher the grade, the fewer imperfections like knots and cracks it has in it.
Vinyl is another stellar deck material that consists of a durable, long-lasting PVC plastic. Over the years, vinyl decks have become sturdy against warping, discoloring, and many other issues. Vinyl can also become practically any deck style you can think of and can take on multiple appealing colors.
Composite decking is a combination of durable plastic and wood fibers. Trex decking is superb in providing composite deck materials that do not warp, splinter, crack, discolor, or deteriorate. The advantage of both vinyl and composite is that they require far less maintenance than wood.
If you want the durable quality of vinyl or composite but also want the affordability of wood, one can compromise with a hybrid deck design. Albaugh & Sons will work with you to devise the best plan for your budget and needs.
Homeowners can deck out their deck with many different amenities. Decks are for dining sets, lounges, hot tubs, grills, garden containers, stereo systems, and more. You can add separate features like a gazebo, screened porch, or pergola as well.
