Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Designed Decks, Rochester, New York

There are few activities more relaxing than kicking back on your deck with the sun on your face and a cold beverage in hand. Customizing these structures ensures an outdoor living space is tailored to your lifestyle. Below, Mallo Home Improvements, an experienced home remodeling contractor in Rochester, NY, answers some of the most frequently asked questions they receive about custom designed decks.

FAQs About Custom Designed Decks

1. What Materials Are Available?

Custom designed decksAlthough wood is the most common deck material, it is by no means your only choice. Other common options include PVC and composite, both of which are durable and low maintenance options.

2. What Is the Most Affordable Deck Material?

Pressure-treated wood is the best option for customers who seek the greatest value at the lowest price. It is relatively less expensive than PVC, composite, and many other higher-end woods, such as cedar.

3. How Big of a Deck Should You Get?

The right sized deck depends on a number of factors. For instance, how much space do you have? The size is only limited by the amount of room in your yard. More importantly, how do you intend to use it? If occasional sunbathing is your goal, you can probably get by with a smaller structure. However, if you plan to host barbecues for the neighborhood, you'll want something more spacious.

4. How Do You Choose a Deck Contractor?

Look for a contractor with a great deal of experience. Ask how long they've been in business and how many decks they've built. They should also be licensed and insured and provide references. Although price should not be your only criterion, look for a contractor whose prices are comparable to others in your area.
