Imagine your closest friends, a cold drink and some shade sitting on a backyard deck. Not much better than that, right? For many, a backyard deck or backyard patio can only seem like a distant luxury that is too expensive or requires too much attention to build. On the contrary, a backyard deck doesn’t require much of an investment and can be a special gathering place for you and your family for years to come.
Here are a two ideas for you to consider when planning on building a deck.
Know your purpose – What are your goals with your deck? Plan on grilling outside and inviting others over? If so, aim for a seating area large enough for everyone to be able to enjoy your delicious grilling skills.
If you live on a hilly patch of land, multi-level decks are a perfect fit. They each serve different purposes – one might have a hot tub or jacuzzi, while the other offers a cozy seating environment surrounding a small fire pit.
Consider the material- Wood and composite decking is most popular in North Texas, but also requires maintenance to seal and protect it from harmful elements like water and the sun. Power-coated aluminum decking won’t crack, warp or rot after long exposure and will never need any special proofing to keep it long lasting. But here’s an idea – why not consider a durable, long-lasting stone deck?
