A deck is one of the biggest home additions so you’ll want to make sure that it’s built properly. According to our decks and new roof construction services experts, you need to pay attention to a few design aspects even before construction begins.
Are you looking for a simple flat deck or do you prefer something multi-leveled or terraced? While it doesn’t have to be fully detailed at this point, having a picture of what you want your deck to look like will help set expectations (and budget).
Foot traffic is an important design aspect because it affects the safety and overall flow of your deck. According to our decks and metal roofing systems experts, foot traffic will dictate where aisles, guard rails and even furniture placement. This will also reduce the need for costly adjustments in the long run.
Location and Orientation
The location and proper orientation of your deck will also have a big effect on which options will work best for you. For example, you can have a deck that connects to the kitchen or the living room. Location could also mean that you may have to know which features are within your area’s building code regulations.
If a deck is expected to get a lot of sunlight, you may have to add a roofing system. Modified bitumen roofing and metal roofing options are popular because they are cost-effective and considered low-maintenance. Decks that don’t get full sunlight during the day can afford to have partial roofing or go completely roofless.
