Huffington Post recently reported that one of the top home improvements you can make is to add a deck to your home to add value and enjoyment. A deck provides the opportunity to extend your living space to the outdoors, allowing you to enjoy nature and breathe fresh air. A well-crafted deck also provides a great entertaining space for hosting social gatherings with family and friends.

Contractor vs. DIY
Many homeowners think that a new deck is a great first-time DIY project. For homeowners with a background in construction, it might be a project they can tackle. However, a quality constructed deck that is safe for your family and friends is a bit more complicated than it seems.
Foundation supports, railing, overhead structures such as pergolas for shade, sealants, decking materials, long-term maintenance, slope, and many more factors must be considered when constructing your new outdoor space. These items that might appear daunting for a do-it-yourselfer are what we do at Ron Bragg Carpentry. We know the right way to build your deck so it is safe, easy to maintain, and will last for many years to come.
Safety & Maintenance Considerations
Each deck constructed by Ron Bragg Carpentry is designed for ease of use and low maintenance. We utilize quality natural or composite construction materials designed to resist mildew, rot, and insect infestation. We provide options to you as the homeowner for materials designed not to splinter and safer to walk on even in snowy and icy weather.
We also provide choices regarding finishes for your new deck that allow for lower maintenance and don’t require re-staining or painting every few years. Ron’s experience building decks over many years allows him to present options so that you won’t feel overwhelmed with decisions. You’ll be excited about your new deck project.
Make Your Dream of a New Deck Reality
He will meet with you to discuss your deck’s goals and how you wish to utilize your deck space for fun and relaxation. Ron will then take your wishes and goals and transform those ideas into a comprehensive project plan. He will detail all of your new outdoor space’s construction elements, the project timeline, and estimated costs for the project.
Your deck will not only be functional to meet the needs of your family, but it will also include an innovative design to blend perfectly with the design of your home. Instead of looking like an addition, your deck will seamlessly integrate with your home. It will look as if it has always been there, flowing perfectly into your lawn and landscape.
