Building a Beautiful Deck

Dan’s Home and Property Maintenance LLC



Building Deck is a great way to transform an ordinary backyard into an entertaining space or to add more dimension to your property. Whether you want to add a deck for summer barbecues or if you want decking around an above ground pool, there are dozens of designs that you can choose from. The main thing to remember is that although you may want a deck, you’ll also want to make sure that you hire a professional to do the job.

Getting the Materials

You might be able to get a general idea of the products you’ll need to complete a deck on your own, though you’ll most likely under or over estimate the materials that you need. It’s always better to cut back on costs by hiring a professional and allowing them to find all of the products for you. From nails to the different types of wood that are suggested for your deck, the professionals will know what items are needed.

Designing the Deck

It’s easy to come up with a concept for your deck, especially if you have a design in mind. The main thing to consider is whether the design will work in the space that you have. When you work with a professional deck installation contractor they can give you advice on how large of a deck you should expect to have and how you can arrange it to make the most out of your backyard.

Paying Attention to Codes

Even if you decide to build a small deck on your property there’s a chance that you’re going to have to get a permit and make sure that the design is up to code. Instead of spending hours researching the by-laws for your area, your chosen contractor will know the ins and outs of what’s safe and how to properly build a deck so it will pass inspection.


Absolutely love the finished work! I had Dan and his team paint the interior and exterior of my home and I could not be happier. Not only does it look beautiful but they are very friendly, reliable, and more than fair. I will definitely be using again!
