Outdoor spaces that lack visual appeal decrease their potential impact on our lifestyle. A custom deck designed specifically for your backyard can add elegance and create opportunities for meaningful engagement with friends and family. Take your dream deck to a new level by creating the perfect custom deck to complement your home, and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle you desire.
You deserve luxury not only inside your home, but also outside. A new deck adds the beautiful, uplifting space ideal for outdoor enjoyment. A gorgeous deck takes summer to a whole new level.
The flowing lines of a curved deck
Why not think outside the box when it comes to deck design? Why not make a lasting statement with a deck that doesn’t look typical? Your home is a unique expression of you, and your backyard should be too. When backyard decking flows in unexpected lines and creates the perfect ambiance for memorable evening gatherings, entertaining takes on a new flair. Curved decks can work on single or multiple layers and add visual interest to your outdoor space.
The enhanced beauty of a rounded deck
Create cohesive beauty with a round deck that invites conversation. Add a circular fire pit, and extend your deck enjoyment well into the fall season with chilly nights quenched by the crackling warmth of a fire and seasoned with sticky marshmallows on graham crackers. Decking and its railing never looks so beautiful than in the round, and when you add curved steps (in lieu of a standard straight flight of steps), you’re in for a real treat.
The elegant radius deck
Enjoy a stylish and unique look along with multiple special decking features. A radius deck with built-in benches provides visual interest. An arbor above decking with ceiling fans hems in a cozy sitting space with refreshing air flow for summer enjoyment. Bring great satisfaction to your family and create lasting memories on a new, elegant radius deck.
The powerful impact of mega decks
All-inclusive, custom-built outdoor living spaces—or mega decks—make backyard entertaining simple. Dinner parties, special events, and family celebrations take on a whole new flair when a deck includes a fully functioning kitchen area, a luxury hot tub, or even a pool.
Decking materials—wood vs. composite
Frankly, people are tired of the short-term performance they get from wood decks. The fastest-growing wood decking alternative on today’s market is composite decking. Composite decking has a core and a cap, making it water-resistant, fade-resistant, and time and money-saving compared to the typical maintenance needed for wood decks.
Composite decking’s capped composite and polymer boards are made of high-performing recycled materials and give your decking extreme built-in protection. Durable composite decking material stands up against weather and maintains its appearance for years. Get the deck you’ve dreamed about and relish:
- Gorgeous looks
- Great performance
- Reliable durability
- Outstanding weather resistance
- Improved resale value
- Distinct customization
Wood composite decking
The most popular material for today’s decking is composite decking. Enjoy the perfect look for your home with custom options available in multiple color selections, with your choice of boards or tiles. Gorgeous and practical, wood composite decking allows you to relish the look of wood (without the upkeep). Over the course of a deck’s lifetime, multiple hours of maintenance work are saved when you choose composite decking.
Unlike decking signs of wear and tear seen on old wood decks, composite decking material stands up to the elements with ease, and can last up to 25 years. Some wood composite decking materials feature grooves in the edges of the planks to allow for hidden fasteners, giving your deck an even more refined look.
Wood composites are splinter-free and resistant to insects, rotting, and warping. There is no need to seal or stain a wood composite deck, making it a backyard feature to enjoy with low maintenance. It provides a higher return on investment (ROI) than other decking materials, and considerable warranty coverage, giving you confidence when choosing this great-looking material.
Get gorgeous options, such as the naturally nuanced look of genuine wood, or monochromatic boards for a painted wood looking finish. Spend your time enjoying your deck, not just maintaining it, with a beautiful composite deck.
Choose from a selection of colors, finishes, and grain patterns to get the perfect look you desire. To ensure your family’s safety, avoid the loose, unsteady railing some decks have, and instead get a strong, reliable deck railing to provide the finest protection for you and your family.
Deck board patterns
Add character to your deck by designing patterns into its plans. Work with your home exterior contractor on the perfect plan. Create interest in the pattern design by scattering the butted ends randomly over your deck. Use at least two different colors of composite decking in your design to boost your deck’s overall look. Contrasting white pillars (which attach your deck to your home’s patio overhang) can add a touch of distinct elegance to your deck.
Curved decks make parallel deck board patterns more interesting. The curved railing adds even more interest when it contrasts with the deck boards. Consider adding contrasting board angles for rounded decking.
Inlay patterns—such as rectangles, squares, and circles—give a visible pop to your deck design. Inlays can be done in the same decking color, or with a contrasting color for a more distinct flair. And borders made of contrasting decking colors give a finished, stylish look to your deck.
Enjoy the attractive, functional deck of your dreams this summer. Transform your backyard and enjoy the lifestyle you desire with a custom, curved, rounded, radius, or mega deck.
