A deck can be a wonderful way to extend your living space for greater enjoyment of the outdoors. But there are right ways and wrong ways to design and build a deck, especially here in northern Nevada. Below, the professionals here at Golden Eagle Builders share the most important considerations for deck design and installation in Reno and Sparks.
Considerations for a Deck Build
No matter what features are being added to an outdoor space, the design should always ensure the space is being used in the best way possible. That means factoring for function and form, while also being mindful of return on investment. A well-designed deck can tick all the boxes by making existing space more functional and pleasing to the eye. It also works particularly well as a foundation for other features, such as an outdoor kitchen, a pergola or attached patio cover, or even a fireplace or fire pit.
No matter how large or small a deck build project may be, it deserves the same attention to detail from the design stage all the way through installation. Here at Golden Eagle Builders, that means deck projects begin with a custom design that takes into account your property, your budget, and your expectations for the finished result. Our experienced craftsmen have the skill set, equipment, and understanding to do the job right.
A discussion about the most appropriate decking materials for the project is also important. There are pros and cons to traditional wood and composite may be a smarter option for long-term performance given the freeze-thaw cycles and high desert sun here in northern Nevada. Understanding all of your options means you have the information you need to make the best decision, and we’re happy to answer your questions and make recommendations.
If you’re considering a new deck in 2023, this is the best time to start researching the best installers for the job. Exterior work tends to slow down when the weather is cold and wet, and installers like Golden Eagle Builders can use the time to work with customers on plans for 2023. Plus, it means you’ll get a spot on the schedule. Those tend to fill up quickly once the weather starts to warm!
