How To Build a Deck

 

1. Plan Your Deck

First things first: Plan you deck size around how you’ll use it. Think chairs, grills, standing room and beyond.

Measure your dimensions, and stage your furniture to determine approximately how much room you’ll need.

2. Choose your decking materials

Decking and railing is the place to start. Find your perfect pairing, and build your deck with those colours in mind. Better yet: Order a board sample for a closer look.
