There’s nothing better in the summertime than having a party on your deck with your friends and family. But can you afford a deck? Nowadays nearly anyone can afford a deck, if it’s built by the right Maryland new deck builder and if you use a couple of these money saving tips.

1. Choose a Design Early

We can’t tell you how many times we’ve began the deck building process, only to have the customer start making changes to the design. This ends up costing them more in the long run in terms of our time and in the costs of materials. If you can outline and design your deck before construction has started, you can make sure that only the necessary amount of materials is purchased, and you can save a good bit of money.

2. Pick the Right Material

50 years ago if you wanted a deck your only option was wood, but today you have a couple of different options. Most Maryland new deck builders offer wood, pressure treated wood, aluminum, and composite decking as options. These materials vary in price but they also vary in terms of what each one brings to the table. There is no “wonder material” that is right for everyone, every deck is unique to each person’s desires. To learn more about the different materials offered you should contact a Maryland new deck builder.

3. Wait Until the Off-Season

Most decks are built during the warmer parts of the year, and market forces push the prices up. If you can wait until a colder month most Maryland new deck builders will lower their prices, as the demand is far smaller. Another benefit of building in the colder months is that contractors won’t be as busy and will be able to work around your schedule more effectively.

4. Keep it Simple

Obviously the bigger your deck is the higher the cost will be. So you should really think about how big you really need your deck to be. You should also try to eliminate any curves or any kind of fancy design features, as these will only serve to drive up the cost.
