With summer in full swing, now is the time to enjoy the outdoors. But what is the best way to do this? Shell out for an expensive membership to a pool or country club? No—the best way to enjoy the outdoors is to create an area on your own property. A custom deck from Structurally Speaking is the best way to take advantage of the North Carolina weather. Every contractor on their team has the experience and expertise in building dream decks. That’s why they are the premier deck builder in the Triangle.
What to Look for in a Deck Builder
A custom deck is a great addition to a home. But, like anything else, it is only as good as the company that stands behind it. Structurally Speaking is the premier deck builder in the Triangle for good reason. They have the experience and the know-how to build exactly what you want. Just take a look at some of their many outstanding projects.
Even better, they will work with you every step of the way. For example, they will help with all permits and paperwork for your addition. Most fixed decks require a permit while floating decks do not. Some homeowners’ associations require additional paperwork. That’s no problem for their experts. Each and every staff member has extensive experience with building codes and regulations.
Fixed vs. Floating—Which One is Right for You?
With so many different choices available, the thought process is sometimes overwhelming. Which design choice is best for your property? Luckily, the outdoor living experts at Structurally Speaking can help. They have extensive experience with building all types of decks. Decks typically fall into one of two main categories: fixed and floating.
A fixed deck, as it sounds, attaches directly to a home. Most traditional decks are of the fixed variety. Fixed decks help with a seamless transition between the interior and exterior of a home. Additionally, they are often multi-level, with different features and entertaining areas. One of these features is the ability to enclose the deck with a screen and make it free of mosquitos and other pests.
A floating deck, on the other hand, stands free of the home. It simply sits on a given spot, rather than attaching to the structure of the home. This makes floating decks very versatile. You can place them virtually anywhere on a property, even around trees or water features. As such, they are perfect as both functional spaces and decorative additions.
Unlike fixed decks, floating decks often don’t need permits, as the laws don’t consider them a permit addition to the home. Plus, they can often be much cheaper than a traditional, fixed deck. Both have benefits. It is really just a matter of which type will best suit your existing yard. A contractor at Structurally Speaking will be able to help you decide which is right for you.
Advantages of a Deck
A deck serves many purposes to enhance the lifestyle of a family. It adds entertaining space, allows a quiet retreat for relaxation or it can provide an additional dining area. Whatever a family’s requirements, the one important advantage is the value it adds to a home. Your largest investment is now worth even more when it comes time to sell. A deck is increasingly popular with buyers. It can make the difference when there are several homes on the market in the same area. The one with the deck will sell faster.
