Your home’s plumbing is a complex system. The winter season is notorious for being rough on your plumbing. However, there are some myths that are simply not true. With the winter quickly approaching, be sure to avoid these five common plumbing myths.

Make a Budget

Start your project by making a budget. While making this budget, make a list of “wants” and “must-haves” accompanied by how much you’re willing to spend. Keep in mind that your deck will have long-term additional costs such as taxes and insurance, so make sure to account for those things in your budget too.

Once you create a budget, make sure to stick to it. No matter how much people aim to stay on budget, it’s common for projects to run over budget. It’s a good idea to set aside some money in case this happens for your deck project. 

Keep it Simple

Big and intricately designed decks usually cost a fortune. If you’re on a budget, your best bet is to keep it simple. Have a small deck built with simple decking materials. You’ll save time and money. Keep in mind that it’s usually the simple designs that end up looking the best.

Time it Right

The warmer months are the most popular time for homeowners to have a deck built. That means that during the warmer months, contractors can raise their prices because of increased demand. During the colder months, like between November and March, contractors have fewer jobs and may reduce their prices. If you’re on a tight budget, consider having your deck built during these months. 

Find the Right Deck Builder

While you shouldn’t choose a deck builder solely based on price, it can be one of the factors to help you decide which one is right for your deck project. Hiring a cheap, inexperienced deck builder can leave you with a deck that you don’t like. When looking for a deck builder in Montgomery County, be sure to:

  • Compare Quotes
  • Read Reviews
  • Request Pictures of Past Projects 
  • Ensure that the Deck Builder is Bonded, Licensed, and Insured
