Plenty of people in Sarasota enjoy spending time outdoors, basking in the sunshine, partaking in water activities, and more. Residents often look to deck construction in order to enhance their outdoor living spaces. What says ‘summer’ more than stepping out onto your beautiful wood deck with a pitcher of lemonade, hosting a barbecue with the neighbors and relishing in the gorgeous weather? Before you jump right into building a new construction, consider the following.
1. Materials Matter in Deck Construction
In Sarasota, we see a diverse array of weather. In one day, it can be blisteringly hot with sunshine and no clouds, pour down rain, and storm with lightning and thunder. Sometimes, you just never know what’s going to happen! Because we have such varied weather, it is important that your deck construction reflects that. You want your materials to be able to withstand storms and hours of direct sunlight, so making sure that you have a sturdy, durable option is essential. Most companies offer either wood, composite, or cellular PVC.
2. Plan for Deck Construction
Your environment matters when it comes to deck construction. Sarasota residents must take their property into consideration before planning their project. Measure out the space you have to build on and from there, determine what land is usable. If your property is not perfectly level, there are ways to accommodate the structure to make it level. Many people live right on the water, and often, the land right against the shore is susceptible to erosion. This means that any constructing has to be planned for and the property needs to be prepped accordingly (seawalls, concrete barriers, etc.).
