Expert Deck Installation VS. DIY Nightmares


Ensure your new deck’s longevity by hiring an expert to install it!

We’ve all heard the stories. One of your friends decided to take on a complex, lengthy home improvement project without the necessary tools, skills, or planning capability. What were the consequences? A lot of wasted time, energy and money resulting in a subpar, dysfunctional product. Custom deck design is tricky! You really need to understand how to make accurate measurements. Your carpentry skills must be polished and well-practiced. If you have little experience with construction work, chances are you’re not going to get the product you desire. You’ll end up paying a lot more than you would for professional deck installation to make up for error and replacement materials. Of course, it is ultimately your decision whether you take on a project by yourself, but the question is should you?

Trust Your Expert Deck Builders

You’ll want your deck to last. Do-it-yourself projects do not ensure optimal deck longevity. Often times, unprofessionally installing your deck leads to unconsidered complications such as wood rot and termites. Building a sound deck is great, but only expert craftsman will enable your deck to stay in usable condition for 30+ years. Novice carpenters cannot deliver the same quality tightened screws, straight angles, deep posts, and proper materials. Unless you’ve been a carpenter or worked construction at some point, Do-it-yourself deck installation is ill-advised. Don’t waste an awesome investment on a product that won’t last more than 3 years. If you want your new outdoor space to be the platform for family memories for years to come, call an expert to install it today.

The Consequences Of Do-It-Yourself Deck Projects

Poorly executed Do-It-Yourself projects could decrease your home’s value! Any home improvement project that’s a major undertaking with specific expertise required could result in disastrous monetary consequences. For example, a vast majority of home renovations require knowledge of city/county building codes. If you’re unfamiliar with these or did not know they were necessary until after your project is completed, you could be forced to take your new deck down by your local state entity. Imagine how much money you’d lose! Local, professional deck builders have knowledge of the most common building code requirements. Maryland residential deck building codes change frequently.
