Top 5 Things To Consider When Building a Deck Part 1

Although summer is winding down, residents of East Cobb, Marietta and Buckhead can enjoy outdoor decks most of the year thanks to our mild Georgia weather. Outdoor decks are consistently listed as one of the top 5 home investments where you can see return on your investment. So whether you’re considering a new deck to sell your home faster or simply for your own enjoyment, here are some things to consider:

  1. Consider the architectural style of your home and select a deck style that will integrate naturally.  For example, if you have a modern home, then you will want clean, simple lines rather than ornate woodwork.
  2. Decks are a great way to cover up some exterior flaws and enhance your outdoor living experience . In these pictures below Atlanta Curb Appeal was able to build around the outdoor water panel and keep it hidden with beautiful slats.Hiding a water tank with custom woodwork
  3. If your backyard has plenty of tall trees, inherent to Georgia terrain, then your grass may be suffering from a lack of sunshine. A great way to cover up dull lawn that refuses to grow, is to add a wooden deck and turn our backyard into an area perfect for playing and entertaining.
  4. Don’t forget about adding shade with a pergola. Hanging out on the deck while protected from direct sunlight is one of life’s delights. Hang a hammock, set up some outdoor furniture and now you have an additional space to entertain or relax.
  5. Decks aren’t just for back yards. Depending on your home’s landscape, sometimes a front yard deck is the right solution
