At Legendary Construction INC, we have been designing and building decks for many years, so we know quite a bit about the process and what the most important considerations are for most people. Because you obviously want your deck to come out the way you want and to enjoy it to the fullest, we’re here to help by telling you three things that you should discuss with your deck designer before construction begins.
- Function- Before designing any space, function should be the first thing on your mind. Taking the time to envision how you will actually use the space will inform how large you want your deck to be, what shape it should be, and even what materials you want it to be made of. Even if you want your deck to be a multi-purpose space where you can relax, entertain, garden, and dine, planning for and discussing each of these things with your deck designer will be helpful to you.
- Style- Aesthetics play an important role when designing and building a deck because a deck’s appearance is a major part of its appeal in the first place. Decks make a property look more luxurious, but also homier. So, during the design process, you should discuss the aesthetic you’re looking for and what will look best with the architecture of your home.
- Budget- Building a deck is going to cost you at least a few thousand dollars, so you need to be wise about how you’re using your money. If you have a tight budget, discussing this with your deck designer help you to get the most out of the project. They can discuss how different materials or designs could drive up your costs and provide suggestions for saving money.
