The Highest Level of Quality For Your Home
A professionally designed deck can bridge the gap between indoor living spaces and the backyard, creating a welcoming environment for everyone to gather and relax outdoors while still having close access to indoor comforts. At Americraft Siding & Windows, our deck builders have years of experience creating custom designs and putting those plans into action. A deck requires a great deal of skill, precision, and attention to detail in order for the deck to look its best and to last for years to come. Homeowners across southeastern Texas have come to rely on our contractors for a level of quality that can’t be beat.
Designing Decks That Enhance Texas Homes
The specific design and features of a deck is what makes the deck a natural extension of the home. Our designers and contractors will look at your home to help you determine the best layout, the best placement of stairs, an appropriate size based on your desires for the deck, and more.
There are various features that can be added to your deck, such as built-in benches, multiple levels, design elements like lighting and planters, and even the way the deck planks are installed to create a unique pattern. Whatever you are envisioning for your deck, we can make it a reality. If you’re unsure of what you want, we can make a variety of suggestions that will complement your home and the surrounding landscape. Ultimately, a deck should make it easy for people to access both the landscape, the home, and enjoy the amenities of the deck.
Choosing the Materials For Your Deck
The deck material that you choose will help determine your budget and the type of maintenance the deck will need; there are several materials to choose from, including pressure treated wood, composite, and vinyl/plastic boards. The cost of the material is also dependent on the overall cost of lumber at the time as well. For a more accurate estimate for your deck, get in touch with the builders at Americraft.
Pressure Treated Wood: The price for pressure treated wood ranges between $3.00 and $4.00 per square foot, or upwards of $5.00 per square foot for hardwood. Wood is a great choice for tight budgets, but there is more maintenance required to keep the wood in good condition.
Composite: Composite materials can range from $7.00 to $10.00 per square foot. The material is a mixture of wood fibers and plastics that won’t shrink or expand due to humidity. Even though the cost is higher, the amount of maintenance required is much less than hardwood.
Vinyl/Plastic: This material can cost between $4.25 and $8.50 per square foot. Though there is very little maintenance, vinyl/plastic decks are more likely to be damaged by extreme heat, so it may not be the best option for the Texas climate.
Skilled Deck Builders In Southeastern Texas
When the design of the deck has been completed and approved and the material chosen, our contractors will get to work. Depending on the size and complexity of the deck, our team will complete the build within one to three weeks. We will start by installing structural posts, then build out the frame, lay down the deck boards, build the railing, and install any steps. At any point during the construction process, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let us know. We are committed to ensuring that you love the finished deck, and will do everything we can to make that happen.
