It is important to choose a decking contractor that you trust, and that has a reputation for getting the job done right and on time.
We have all seen decks that are un-level, steps that are crooked and boards that are bowed. Decks do require upkeep ever couple of years but how they are installed greatly changes their appearance and desire for use. Proper flashing, footers, decking height are some of the more major concerns outside of proper upkeep.
Understanding why decks are built based on your counties code requirements can really change the type or size you choose. It might cost thousands more to build the same deck in one county than another. If your next project happens to be a deck, being happy when the project is completed isn’t enough, you should be happy years down the road.
