A deck can be a valuable addition to your home. It can provide an outdoor space where you can relax, host parties, or enjoy some leisurely moments in the outdoor spaces of your home. At Lavergne Renos in Ottawa, we can add a great deck or renovate your old one until it looks brand new.
Decks might look simple, but they’re quite complicated structures. Any renovation, repair, or installation requires expertise and planning, which is why you need an experienced contractor for the job. Here are some factors we consider during the deck installation process:
- Location – A deck will alter the exterior appearance of your home, which means you need to choose the location wisely. Our team will study the architecture and layout of your property carefully and recommend the best places to install a deck. They will also take your preferences into account. For example, some people want a private deck by their master bedroom while others would like a family deck.
- Material – Decks can be made from different kinds of materials based on the owner’s requirements and budget. Some of the most commonly used materials are hardwood, composite, and pressure treated lumber. All of these options have their pros and cons. Our team will explain them to you so you can make an informed decision regarding the deck material.
- Deck Design – This is one of the most challenging aspects of the deck installation project. You want the structure to blend in seamlessly with the overall architecture of your home. If the deck isn’t designed well, it will stand out like a sore thumb and compromise the value of the property.
- Size and Levels – The size of the deck depends on how you want to use it. If the deck is private, you might want a smaller space. If you want an area where you can host parties, choose something bigger. Decks can also have different levels based on your requirements. You can have multiple levels that span different floors, ground level decks that sit on your backyard, or elevated decks.
