Florida's called the Sunshine State for a reason: the weather is usually perfect for sitting outside and relaxing. Just get a deck in place for observation and a pergola to protect from the sun's harshest elements, and you're good to go.
If you're looking to add a deck or pergola to your home in Palm Beach, having the right design, material and construction team on the job is essential. Trying to build without one of these crucial elements can leave you with a substandard product, which can be a disaster when Florida's summers and hurricanes roll into Palm Beach. If you're ready to consider adding a deck to your residence, here are a few things you need to keep in mind.
There are plenty of good decking products out there, but how do you decide which one is best for your family and your yard design? Wood decking can be an excellent choice if you're willing to put in the work to maintain it. Because it's easy prey for insects and rodents, as well as the humidity of Florida, wood decking needs to be properly sealed and cared for year after year.
When it comes to composite decking brands, they are known for their low maintenance costs and long-lasting qualities. If opting for composite decking, pergola construction becomes a necessity, due to composite decking retaining heat better than wood does. With Florida sunshine, you may find your deck too hot to enjoy during the sunniest portions of the day, if you do not add a pergola to your composite deck.
That's why working with a decking expert is so important. We understand what goes into building a deck and can ensure we choose the right materials for your needs. Based on your budget, lifestyle and yard design, we'll help you figure out what decking material makes the most sense for you.
There are many factors that can help you determine what types of deck and what kind of design is best for your needs. You'll want to consider the main things you plan to use the deck for above all else. If you plan to use the deck for outdoor parties and entertaining friends regularly, you'll likely want a bigger deck that gives you as much space as possible. If you're only going to use your deck for quiet evenings at home with your spouse, you might not need as much size in your deck.
You'll also want to consider the kind of weather you get at your home and whether you want to face the deck a certain way. Maybe your Boynton Beach home has two potentially excellent views depending on how you position your deck, and you can either get a lot of sun or a lot of shade depending on what you choose. You can decide which alignment makes sense for you and we'll help make it a reality.
