Lee’s Summit Decks

Lee’s Summit decks

Deck used to be a somewhat generic term, similar to a commodity like sugar or salt. Gone are the days of a 12’ x 12’ square deck made of cedar or treated lumber as your only choices. Today’s decks come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and materials. Choices seem to be limitless and new materials are always being introduced. New choices include tropical hardwoods that hadn’t been well known, thermally treated lumber, composites, and PVC’s. Railing, spindle, and lighting options add to the ability to customize a deck that is all yours.

All of these options can be confusing. It is wise to seek the help of a deck building professional to help sort through the maze of products and the prices associated with these products. Are you concerned with durability and maintenance? What about a natural wood deck or a composite deck? Is price of the material used an object or is the aesthic appeal more important. Do you want hidden fasteners? How long are you going to remain in your current home and how much do you want to invest in a deck? What will my deck add to the value of my home this year? What about five or ten years down the road? Will my deck add to the salability of my home in five or ten years? These are just a few of the decisions that need to be made. Every product has advantages and disadvantages and it is our job to point these out and help you make an informed decision on a very important addition to your home.
