Raleigh's Top Choice For Deck Installation

The decision to install a deck on your property is a significant one – it takes time, money, and careful planning. Matters such as shape, size, and material must be addressed. Undertaking this project is likely to be a worthwhile investment, however. Consider the following advantages:

  • Adds square footage. By opting for deck installation, you are essentially adding a room to your home. It is living space that doesn’t require the headaches associated with wiring, sheetrock, and other materials.

  • Excellent return on investment. Homeowners who have decks professionally installed typically enjoy ROIs of 85-100%. To put this number into perspective, a living room typically offers a 69% return and a bathroom remodel may allow for a 78% return.

  • Outdoor enjoyment. With a constantly growing focus on technology and convenience, it seems as if people are spending less time outdoors. A deck provides space to appreciate nature without having to travel too far. Decks also serve multiple functions, including family rooms, dining areas, outdoor kitchens, birthday party hot spots, and sunning areas.

  • Increased property value. Not only will a new deck be practical, but it will easily add curb appeal. If you plan on selling your property in the near future, the installation of a new deck can drastically increase property value. Its style and endless possibilities will be sure to attract potential buyers.

  • Enhancement of yard space. A deck may not seem like a wise decision for a home with a small yard, but one may actually increase the yard’s usability. This is especially true for properties built on sloped land. An elevated deck adds different levels, and therefore better use of space, to an area. This provides more room for all the best outdoor activities, such as lounging in a pool or hot tub, barbequing, or relaxing in a swing.

Trex outdoor living products are true value-added features for residential and commercial installations. They offer unmatched good looks and longevity, and will never rot, crack or splinter. Trex products are extremely weather-resistant and never need painting or staining for protection. And, Trex decking is the only composite lumber to be code-listed by the nation's three major building code agencies.

Pressure Treated Deck Installation

The most common building material for outdoor decks is still wood - namely pressure treated lumber (usually southern yellow pine). Pressure treated lumber is created by forcing chemicals into the wood under intense pressures - hence the name. These chemicals act as preservatives for the wood and help keep moisture out and prevent rotting, decay, and insect damage. Pressure treated wood is especially recommended in applications where the wood needs to come in contact with the ground, like in fences or posts. Other popular woods for decking include redwood (which resists decay naturally), red cedar, and mahogany. Wood decks do take more work to maintain, so plan on a regular system of painting, sealing, and cleaning.
