  • The Location

    Before starting the main deck building process, it’s necessary to pick a well-thought location. It’s very important to pick a dry location where water cannot reach (except for the rain of course).

    After you picked your desired location the company will of course make sure there are no underground services or connections (especially in the digging area). They will outline the form of your future deck and will get rid of sod. The last step here would be the hole-digging process for piers and footing.

  • The Building Stage

    Deck building process always starts from the footings. The durability of your deck also depends on how solit its footings are, so choosing the right location for footings and setting them firmly is very important.

    After we are done with the footings, it’s time to install the supporting posts, install the joints and attach the beams.

    Now, it’s high time to start wood decking. Here, in order to avoid future shiftings, the constructor needs to be patient, attentive as well as professional while nailing the woods.    

    We also need to mention that in case you want to replace wood decking with the composite decking, things will be even easier – you will not have to paint, seal or stain it. This weather, insect or mold resistant alternative is very easy to install as it joins each other with the special fasteners which are not noticeable at all.

The overall project at some point might be frightening especially when you have no clue about this process at all. Nevertheless, whatever me mentioned here are some simple yet very important things to be careful and if you are attentive, then you are successful. And of course, remember that whenever you want to start a deck repair or deck building project, approach the right people and companies to get the best of what you are going to have.
