Breaking Ground on Deck-Building Myths
Residential deck installation is no simple task; it’s an art form, perfected over years, or as we at Rinaldi Roofing like to call it, deck-ades of experience. The National Association of Home Builders certainly agrees, revealing an 80% average return on investment for deck additions. Impressive, right? What’s even more striking is the number of decks in the United States that are aging and in need of a spruce up. With over 40 million decks over the 20-year mark, according to the North American Deck and Railing Association, a new troop of deck building professionals is necessary.
A Deck(ade)-Defining Process in Action
Deck installation services are not, as many assume, a weekend backyard deck idea come to life with a few tries. It’s a culmination of meticulous planning, custom deck design, and careful selection of quality deck materials. And that’s not even the half of it! Our residential decking solutions are no Ikea instruction manual; they’re more like a coded language understood by professional deck builders.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the first step you’ll take towards your home deck installation.
Mastering the Art of Deck Designing
Before our deck installation contractors can get to work, the initial conceptual stage must be completed. During this phase, we consider your outdoor living space, including your existing structure and your desired end product. Your outdoor deck installation isn’t merely adding a space to your home; it’s about marrying the existing architecture with a new structure to create a seamless transition.
Choosing the Perfect Materials
Choosing the right decking materials, which will decide the deck installation cost, is no walk in the park. Factors like durability, cost, and maintenance requirement play crucial roles. However, as prominent experts in the decking installation process, we have a keen eye for spotting quality deck materials and an innate sense of balancing practicality and pizzazz.
Up onto the Construction Stage
The deck construction guide is the lifeblood of our service. Here, we work diligently to transform that plan into a tangible structure that embellishes your yard. This phase often involves obtaining necessary permits, which our team handles with the utmost professionalism.
Decking Decision Predicaments: When DIY Isn’t the Ideal Route
With a rise in DIY deck installation, we’ve seen a fair share of once-beautiful backyards turned into structural nightmares. While the prospect of reducing the deck installation cost might be appealing at first, the headaches of unclear building standards, permit acquisition, and safety issues outweigh the savings. Save your time, energy, and possibly a trip to the doctor’s by choosing a reputable deck installation service provider like Rinaldi Roofing.
