Building things can be one of life’s simplest and most rewarding pleasures. However, there is a big difference between building a bird house and building a deck. Granted, if you’re not able to build a structurally sound bird house, then you may have some disappointed birds. Building a problematic deck, on the other hand, will result in more serious consequences.

A plethora of tools

Will It Handle the Day to Day?

Decks need to be structurally sound for a number of reasons, the most important of which is safety. You’re probably going to have a few people, some furniture, a grill, a dog, and any number of other guests on your deck and if it were to fall, people could get hurt. The number one reason not to build your own deck, even if you’ve successfully built something else around your house, is that a deck is meant to bear a very heavy load and that it simply isn’t worth dropping it to DIY.

Permits, Paperwork, and More!

Before you can even start building your deck, you’re going to need to make sure that you have all the necessary paperwork, permits, and permissions to do the job. Do you know whether or not your plumbing is running in the area that you want to build your deck? That’s something you’ll need to be sure of. No one wants to dig directly into a septic tank and if you do, then you will sorely regret it. Not to mention the fact that you might even get into trouble for it depending on how your neighborhood handles the plumbing. Building large structures is messy business and it’s better handled by people who really know what they’re doing.

Do You Have a Plan?

Design is an often-forgotten step in the building process for people that have never built a deck before. However, a little planning can really go a long way. When we take on your project, we’ll make sure every element of your deck has been thought through before we ever break ground to ensure that nothing is forgotten along the way.
