If you think that your backyard feels a bit empty this summer, then you should consider building a brand new deck. Over the years, your old deck might have been too much to constantly repair so you decided to have contractors come and take it out of your yard. But now you’ve changed your mind So what should you do next?

Why Do You Want It?

This question is one of the most important ones you can answer. Your answer shouldn’t be just because the neighbors in your Annapolis neighborhood have one. Do you want to have a place to have a romantic dinner on a moonlit summer night? That’s one possibility. Another is to have a place to put your new jacuzzi or the new grill that is the first piece of your outdoor kitchen.

Can You Build It?

Next, you have to ask yourself if this a project you can complete by yourself. If the railing is coming loose on your current deck, then that is probably a project you could fix over the weekend. But if the planks of wood are rotting away or the concrete supports don’t look their best, then this could be a job for decking experts instead.

What Materials Do You Need?

Redwood and cedar are good for surviving bad weather, while hardwood looks beautiful. You could also have a composite deck, which has the look of wood but with the durability of plastic.
