Reasons Why You Should Consider Having Us Build A

Deck

There are many great reasons why anyone should consider having a new deck built. These structures provide a myriad of benefits around your home or business!

Here are some of the notable reasons to build a new deck:

Increase the Value of Your Home

Not many projects add hard value to your home or business the way that outdoor living areas do. It’s proven that a new deck offers a 100% return on investment. You’ll get back all the money that you invest in building a deck should you choose to sell your home. The added curb appeal will help you sell it even faster too!

Social Gatherings

If you like to host gatherings for your friends and family, a deck can be the perfect way to add space where you and your guests can gather and still breathe freely. A deck will give open space to enjoy while any spills or other potential accidents are significantly less costly to repair or clean up.

Enjoy the Outdoors

Decks help to give an entirely new perspective to outdoor comfort. Much more than a simple porch from years ago, today’s decks offer a new and comfortable way to enjoy the peace and comforts of nature. Thoughtfully placed plants can offer privacy and the feeling of nature even if you live in the city. From the wood beneath your feet to the sky above, enjoy nature with a new deck.

A Customizable New Look

There are a plethora of decking materials available for modern decks. You can truly express your design preferences with natural or composite materials, from exotic hardwoods to rustic pine and from simple, traditional decks to a complex geometric design. Down to the hardware, including traditional brass or steel screws and completely hidden fasteners, this deck is an expression of you.

Endless Functional Possibilities

Outdoor living has become a highly popular trend over recent years and the market has responded with a wide assortment of products designed for just that! From outdoor fireplaces and fire pits to comfortable seating sets made to make your outside space as beautiful and functional as the inside of your home. We can even put in an outdoor kitchen!

Increased Living Space

By having a deck installed around your home you’ll not only be getting a unique look and new functionality, but you’ll also be gaining additional living space! Every square inch of your new deck will be more living space that you can make your own and do with what you want. From a place to relax to a place to spend time with family, adding a deck is as versatile as adding a room to your home!

Do not let your new construction plans fall into disarray

Reasons Why You Should Leave The Building To The Professionals

The work that goes into any new construction project can be completely overwhelming to anyone who doesn’t do it every day. If you want the job done right and made with the highest quality materials, leave your new deck construction to the professionals at Grand Rapids Remodel.

Outdoor Kitchen

With an outdoor kitchen, you can bring entertainment and fine dining into your backyard! We can build an outdoor kitchen for your deck that’s designed for either full or partial prep, depending on your preference. Many homeowners will also opt to have a built-in grill included for easy access. You can even have an entire outdoor kitchen designed, complete with a refrigerator, sink, and prep station!

Shade Shelter

You shouldn’t have to run indoors because of the blazing sun or wet weather. A popular option for decks across the country is the addition of a shade shelter, such as a covered pergola. This will help keep you and your family comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside!

Glass Railing

You can ensure that your modern deck is safe without diminishing the beautiful view with tempered glass railing. We can install a wide variety of designs, including wooden framed, aluminum framed, or vinyl systems. Glass railing keeps an open feeling and allows natural light to brighten your space while keeping your deck safe simultaneously!

Fire Pit

A fire pit can be a beautiful addition to your outdoor living space. Nothing is better on a cool autumn night than having an inviting, warm space to gather. Fire pits can also be a stylish centerpiece that gives you a fantastic opportunity to showcase the beauty of your deck and decor.

Built-in Furniture

Instead of relying on the traditional patio furniture of years past, you should consider incorporating your main seating directly into your deck with benches! We can also design these seats of these benches to lift up so that you can have extra storage space for your deck that’s built directly into the seating.

Lighting

Lights are a beautiful and versatile addition to any deck! They can be placed in the decking surface, within the railing and steps for added safety, and in overhead features or wall mounts for mood lighting. Using modern lighting can be an excellent way to build a deck that works well for your family and adds value to your property and lifestyle!

FAQ’S

We know that you have questions and you want answers. Here are some of the more common questions that we hear from customers.

Do I have to use pressure-treated wood?2020-04-16T02:16:54+00:00

Though pressure-treated wood is a highly popular choice for many different reasons, that doesn’t mean that it’s the only choice for your deck. Pressure-treated wood is typically made from a type of yellow pine, which does have the tendency to splinter if not treated. When it comes to natural wood, some other popular choices include cedar and redwood.

When it comes to figuring the exact amount of time that it will take to build your deck, there are several factors that come into play. The size of the new deck, the complexity of the design, and even the weather all have a bearing on how long the process will take. For a basic deck, the average time from start to finish is one to two weeks. However, if your design is more complex, the process could take anywhere from four to six weeks to complete.

How long will my new deck last?2020-04-16T02:19:39+00:00

The two biggest factors that influence how long your new deck will last are the type of material you chose and how well you maintain it afterward.
