Why settle for a traditional rectangular deck, when you could choose to build a custom deck and have exactly what you want?
With custom decks, you have options galore – you are only limited by your space, budget, and what your HOA (if you have one) will allow. For instance you can choose:
- Decking materials: various hardwoods, exotic woods, composite, aluminum, Trex, etc.
- Shape: Rectangle, square, octagon, semi-circle, or a combination
- Size: small, medium, or large
- Levels: single or multi-level; patio built underneath deck – enclosed or not
- Accessibility: a custom deck allows you the ability to create multiple ways of easily accessing your deck, including ramps, so that everyone may enjoy your new deck. Built ins can be created to accommodate someone who uses a wheelchair.
- Railings: could be made from the same decking materials you use for the deck, or they could be other materials such as iron or glass; balusters or spindles could be straight, slanted, or curved; decorative caps offer a classic or modern way to accessorize your railing.
- Deck coverings: no cover, partial cover, full cover; wood, cloth, or aluminum awnings (retractable or stationary awnings); pergola or gazebo
- Dining features: an outdoor kitchen, built-in seating, perhaps building a dining area separate from the cooking area.
- Entertainment features: built in seating, a bar and an entertainment area, a hot tub, and firepit or fireplace are all options to consider.
- Utilities: gas, water, and electric can be run out to the custom deck to support lighting the deck, powering an outdoor kitchen, gas for a grill, water for a sink, dishwasher, or bar.
