3 Things to Consider Before Building Your Deck

Planning is an essential part of every home improvement project. Without it, you can lose a lot of money and time during the process. So, before you build or replace your deck, you have to put a considerable amount of time into planning your next steps.

Should you DIY a deck installation job? That is time-consuming and dangerous without the right training. Should you call a professional contractor that offers deck installation? Definitely. But who should you hire? Is the person qualified to do the job? It is important to do your own research before you can proceed to the actual installation of your deck.
To help you along on your deck-building journey, here are three of the things you should consider before calling an exterior home improvement company:
1. Start With Materials
With a tight budget, you must consider the materials. But if you have a thicker wallet, you have the luxury to pick the material you want, which can be a little tricky sometimes. Traditional options are still popular, of course. But hardwood can sometimes become scarce in some localities. Fortunately, there are alternative synthetic materials like vinyl.
2. More Room
If you want to maximize your deck, you can consider designing it with layers or levels. A wide platform outside your house is good, but if you have different levels, you can create more room for different purposes. Two to three levels are advisable for larger decks. These elevations will break up your deck into separate areas for guests and a more comfortable space for relaxation.
3. Design Variations
Never forget about the design. An elegant deck can significantly increase your home value and guest satisfaction during social gatherings. What are the elements you want to see in your deck? How about a container garden at the side or game corner? When thinking about the design, also consider the purpose of the deck first and the things you want to do there. List the features you want to include, and try to incorporate them into an overall theme.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
