Wood Decks

At Deck and Fence Connection, we understand the value of a well-constructed and aesthetically pleasing wood deck. Wood decks are popular for a good reason—they extend your living space and offer a place for you, as well as your family and guests, to relax outside and enjoy some fresh air. You can trust the professionals at Deck and Fence Connection to create the ideal wood deck for your home.

The Advantages of Wood Decks 

Wood decks are a classic addition to any home. They add an atmosphere of comfort and elegance to any outdoor space. A well-designed deck is an outdoor statement piece that will provide great style and functionality while adding value and desirability to your home. Your new wood deck can provide you with: 

  • An outdoor social space
  • Space for relaxation
  • Room for play among children and pets
  • Space for your outdoor BBQ or kitchen
  • Increased home value 

Designing a deck can be an exciting project that allows you to customize the appearance and functionality of your outdoor space. To ensure your deck meets your needs and complements your home, there are various aspects to consider. The experienced designers of Deck and Fence Connection will help you consider all factors to create your ideal wood decks.

Factors to Consider Before Designing Wood Decks

By carefully considering these aspects, you can create a well-designed wood deck that not only enhances your outdoor living space but also aligns with your lifestyle, budget, and local regulations. Discuss your needs and expectations with us to help you determine what will work best for you and your family. Before we begin designing your wood deck, we will discuss the following with you: 

  • Deck Purpose and Use
    • Identify the primary purpose of your deck, whether it’s for entertaining, dining, relaxation, or a combination of these.
    • Consider the number of people you plan to accommodate regularly on the deck.
  • Budget
    • Establish a realistic budget for your deck project, considering construction costs and ongoing maintenance.
  • Location
    • Determine where your deck will be situated, such as in the front, back, or side yard.
    • Consider sun exposure, shade, wind patterns, and privacy in the chosen location.
