The decision to expand your living space to the outdoors is an investment that will not only increase the value of your home, but will provide a haven for relaxation, leisure, and entertainment. It's an important decision, and that's why the Woodland Deck Company determines to provide you with the best possible custom deck design service available, from start to finish.
Custom Deck Design: Bringing Your Deck Ideas to Life
Every deck project is different because there are so many variables involved in the deck design process. Here are some important things to consider before you get started:
1. Deck Use
How do you plan to use your deck? If you’d like to incorporate a grill and use your deck for regular family meals, be sure to leave enough space to walk comfortably around a table and chairs. Do you like to entertain? You might consider handrails with a wide, flat cap for guests to rest their drinks. Does your dream deck include a fire pit? We will check local building codes. Take the time to create and prioritize a list of deck design ideas that suit you and your family’s personal needs.
2. Deck Location
Whether you’re starting from scratch or improving on an existing deck, limited property size often dictates where decks and patios can be built. Taking a few minutes to stake out a very general deck footprint will help you pinpoint areas where you might want to incorporate shade or privacy features into your deck design.
3. Deck Construction Budget
Think a custom deck is too expensive? Our experienced experts have designed for all budgets, no matter how big or small, from developing the deck plans to complete deck construction.
4. Deck Materials
Whether you prefer wood deck designs with pressure-treated lumber, PVC, Ipe, cedar, Cumaru, or redwood - or composite deck designs using low-maintenance composite decking like Trex or TimberTech, we’ve designed and built custom decks using all of the options available, and we understand the advantages and disadvantages of each. The greatest percentage of our workload consists of vinyl, wood, and Trex® composite decking. Share your deck design ideas with us and we'll work with you - and within your budget - to help determine the best material to suit your custom deck design project.
No matter your interests, we can help you design a functional space that makes sense for your lifestyle. Our deck plans include 3-D renderings and modeling of your deck design so you can virtually use it before it’s built, and you can visit our showroom for a full selection of products we offer to help you visualize the completed project.
Deck Construction: Quality Craftsmanship Without the Hassle
Our design expertise doesn’t end once you’ve signed off on the deck designs. From the moment we first attach a ledger board to your home to yard cleanup and final inspections, our deck construction process is always focused on three things:
- Making the deck building experience easy and hassle free for you.
- Making sure your investment pays dividends for many years to come.
- Moving the project along in a timely manner so you can start the grill sooner.
Our project managers lead this process and use our proven systems of:
- Deck ledger attachment
- Footer details
- Deck framing preparation
- Decking installation
- Stair construction details
Every great endeavor begins with an idea, and we’re here to help you make that idea become a reality. As experienced deck builders, we have been drawing up gorgeous, unique deck designs and building quality wood decks, composite decks, and railing systems for more than a decade. In doing so we have earned a solid reputation as one of the leading high-quality crafters of custom decks in the industry. We’d love to help you build a deck today!
