What should I consider when planning a custom composite deck for my Novi, Michigan home?
First, you’ve made the best choice with composite decking. Allied recommends and installs both Trex and TimberTech materials. Trex is considered a high-performance leader in composite decking and offers durability at an affordable price.
Composite decking is a long-lasting wood alternative. It’s resistant to rot and warping. Composite decking is also fade resistant. And, it comes in a variety of colors to match your color scheme.
Composite decking is durable. It holds up to everyday wear and tear. And it’s scratch resistant. However, just like wood, you’ll want to take care not to damage the surface.
In addition, composite decking requires minimal maintenance. Sweep dirt and debris away when needed. Or hose down with a little soap and water for a more thorough cleaning. That’s it! Pressure washing is not recommended as this may damage the decking surface.
Next, you’ll need to think about what you want to use your deck for. While a deck adds an aesthetic factor to your Novi home, the goal is functionality.
Are you looking forward to entertaining on your deck? Grilling for family and friends? Do you plan to add furniture and plants to create an outdoor oasis? Do you want to add a cozy fire pit or relaxing hot tub? How about a gazebo? Or do you want a pergola to add shade? Maybe a trellis to add some privacy?
Allied can help you with all these options.
Decks make homeowners happy
Homeowners who added decks are happy they did. According to a NAR study “The most important result for homeowners was to have better function and livability. Three out of four homeowners (77%) said they have a greater desire to be home since completing the project. Some 51% have an increased sense of enjoyment when they are at home, and 77% feel a major sense of accomplishment when they think of the project. These responses earned decks a “joy score” of 9.7.”
