Design Ideas for Deck Construction

If your Sarasota home doesn’t have a gorgeous patio area for you to relax and entertain under the Florida sun, it may be time for you to start thinking about starting a deck construction project. Although building a new structure may seem like a tedious and stressful task, it can also be a lot of fun when you are in the designing stages.


Wood, composite, and cellular PVC are the three materials used to build outdoor structures. Wood is the only natural option and costs the least upfront. However, maintenance will be required to prevent pests and weathering, which is an important consideration in lieu of Sarasota’s summer sunshine and hurricane season. This can lead to more expenses over time.

Composite and cellular PVC are more expensive deck construction options, but are rot, pest, and UV ray resistant naturally, which means you won’t have to pour money into maintenance over time.

All materials are offered in a variety of gorgeous finishes, so no matter what your taste preferences may be, you are sure to find the right style to suit you.


Choosing your layout is very important and will depend on the shape of your Sarasota property. A high-quality design will highlight the beauty of your home and yard, while a poor design will draw attention to flaws. The deck construction layout will also depend on landscape or appliances that may be in the way of building. However, this shouldn’t stop you, as it can be easy to have things removed or moved around.

Raised decks can showcase a beautiful view of the sunset, while ground-level ones can offer seamless transition from the indoor to the outdoor space. Some homeowners choose a wrap-around design, while others prefer a more traditional, simple rectangular layout.


Choosing your customized features is one of the most exciting aspects of deck construction. This is what makes your new space feel like your own personal oasis, rather than just a cookie-cutter design.

Many Sarasota homeowners choose to add features that complement their lifestyles; those with green thumbs may add planter boxes, while those who love to entertain may add a grill or built-in seating. Those with more lavish tastes can also incorporate a hot tub into the design plan in order to turn the area into a backyard spa retreat. Others add a fire pit for summertime s’mores.

There are also a number of deck construction options to reduce the intensity of Sarasota’s summer sun using arbors and pergolas for shade, and lighting can be installed for night-time use and ambiance.
