What Does Custom Decking Mean?

Installing a deck is probably the most worthwhile home improvement project you can undertake to raise the value of your home. It’s worth especially comes out in the warm weather, when you can relax outdoors with family and friends. But not all decks are created equal. You can stand out with a custom deck that sets your home apart in the aesthetic value it presents to your guests and the accompanying bragging rights that come with such a premium home feature.

Custom Features

The concept behind custom decking is to have your tastes and preferences in the work as much as possible. This means the colours, materials, and other accessories are made to your liking as much as possible. Unlike the typical decking where the contractor presents several choices to pick from, custom decking allows the client and contractor to work to come up with a design from scratch.

Landscape Consideration

In many cases, custom decking is done to match unique landscaping designs. The lay of the land is crucial in setting up a custom deck. Does the ground slope, and if so, what is the angle of the slope? What type of trees, flowers, or other vegetation needs to be cleared to make way for the decking? Sometimes the effort involved in changing the landscape may be so disruptive as to negate the beauty of the custom decking.

Home Design Considerations

The deck design is supposed to complement the house design seamlessly, looking a part of the house as much as possible. Where is the decking to be placed? Will it interrupt the views from the ground floor windows? Do any doors or windows need to be modified to accommodate the deck? How will the deck be accessed from the house? These are some of the home design considerations that would need to be done.

Detailed Deck Design

Custom decking involves more work than the typical decking project. The client and the contractor have to work together every step of the way. The contractor will create a design based off several wants and needs. After the design is done, changes and modifications are made to ensure the deck is to specification. The contractor can then go ahead to acquire a building permit and proceed with the work. The duration needed to complete the work usually depends on the complexity of the project.
