Why is it Important to Invest in a New Deck?

Investing in a new deck is an excellent option for homeowners looking to enhance property values and get the most out of outdoor living spaces. Outdated decks can be an eyesore and pose a danger when used, as rotted and splintered boards can result in people falling, slipping, and unintentionally harming themselves.

New decks provide a functional area for entertaining friends, relaxing on the weekend, and enjoying the outdoors. They also serve as attractive features that can improve the aesthetics and value of your home. When built by our professionals using high-quality materials, new decks can provide a safe, accessible outdoor space for families and become a hub for get-togethers that last for generations.

How Long Does Deck Construction Take?

Several factors impact the length of a deck's construction, including the complexity of the design, the availability of materials, and the ability to secure permits. If everything goes according to plan, simple, one-story decks can be completed in a few weeks.

However, complex projects like multi-story walkouts and elevated terraces can take several weeks and potentially months to complete, as they require securing permits and careful construction to ensure structural stability. The construction process of decks, like digging a foundation and laying boards, does not take long. It's the creation of custom designs, securing permits, and ordering materials from manufacturers that add significant time to the process.

MKW Services's Deck Construction Process

Over our many years of service, we've developed a streamlined process to improve the quality and efficiency of our deck construction. You can count on our team to work diligently to support your needs and create beautiful, long-lasting decks that help you embrace your time in the great outdoors.

Here's what we offer:

  • Comprehensive deck design consultations
  • Site visits and property assessments
  • Careful planning and recommendations
  • Code-compliant construction
  • Follow-ups and safety inspections

Deck Safety Features

Creating robust safety features and maintaining structural soundness is paramount to success when building a new deck. Whether you're investing in a multi-story deck, a pool deck, or a standalone gazebo, stringent safety regulations and procedures need to be followed to ensure your deck can withstand extreme weather and last you for years.

Our team takes a safety-first approach to deck creation, and when you work with us, you can expect the following:

  • Installing railings for decks over 30 inches above ground level and ensuring proper railing height to align with building codes (usually 36-42 inches). We also ensure railings have graspable handrails.
  • Proper stair dimensions, including a maximum rise of 7-8 inches and a minimum tread depth of 10 inches.
  • Using high-quality materials from reputable manufacturers, such as pressure-treated lumber, joists, and beams sized based on load calculations and a sturdy ledger board to secure the deck to your home.
  • Footings installed below the frost line to provide a stable foundation throughout the year.

With the right safety features, your deck can comfortably accommodate children and older people. Code compliance is also essential for getting approvals from local authorities and can streamline the process overall.

Hassle-Free Low Maintenance Decking

Our decking solutions allow you to enjoy your outdoor space without the endless upkeep demanded by poorly built decks. Our low-maintenance decking solutions mean more lounging and less time working on your deck.

Investing in a low-maintenance deck from our team can save you money by reducing the need for constant repairs and replacements. We offer a variety of materials, such as composite, vinyl, and PVC, that are resistant to mold, mildew, and rot. Compared to traditional wood decking, these durable materials also require minimal cleaning and maintenance.

Meeting All Building Codes for Deck Construction

When it comes to deck construction, safety is our top priority. Our deck builders will ensure that all local and national building codes are met during construction. This ensures your deck is structurally sound and built to last.

We also consider any unique requirements or restrictions for your property, such as slope of land, proximity to water sources, or size restrictions. By meeting all building codes, we provide you with the peace of mind that your deck is safe for you and your family to enjoy.

Why Cedar Decking?

Cedar is a common and durable wood, making it an ideal candidate for any deck project. The look and smell of this wood will provide you with the feeling of nature. It usually contains knots, giving it that great look of perfect imperfection. Pressure treated wood uses copper-based compounds to help prevent fungus to build up on wood which the tiniest bit of moisture can cause on plain wood.

  • Amazing Natural Wood Smell
  • No Stain or Paint Needed
  • Resilient & Durable Wood
  • Lower Maintenance Wood
  • Natural Stabilizing Properties
  • Cedar Natural Bug Resistance

Pressure Treated Decking

A great option for any outside project is pressure treated wood. Pressure treated wood is a wood that has been injected at high pressure by preservatives to ensure long lasting years that will stand up to whatever life throws at it.

  • Lower Up Front Cost
  • Great for Rental Properties
  • Natural and Earthy Appeal
  • Natural Bug Repellant
  • Moisture & Rot Resistant

Choose Your Deck Materials

Our expert craftspeople are qualified to work with a wide range of materials. Rather than allowing the cost of materials to influence your decision, we strongly advise you to consider the functional factors. In the end, durability and resistance to pest damage or rot may offset the initial deck installation costs.

Most decks are constructed with a combination of materials. For example, on a deck that uses a PVC decking surface, we may still use pressure-treated wood for the posts and support beams. Choosing the right materials means working with the restraints of your property, your budget, and your needs.

The most commonly used decking materials are:

  • Pressure-Treated Lumber
  • Western Red Cedar
  • Composite
  • PVC
