Why Employ a Deck Installation Professional?
Warm weather is finally here, bringing with it both outdoor home improvement projects and the opportunity to make timeless memories enjoying your outdoor space with your friends and loved ones. If you’ve been thinking about building a deck, summer is the most conducive time of the year to finally make it happen. Here are some factors to take into account while deciding whether to hire a professional or attempt to do the job yourself.
You’re going to need a permit for that.
Depending on your neighborhood’s regulations and zoning requirements, you may need a permit to build a deck. Applying for a permit requires submitting plans to ensure both the sightlines of your addition and its safety, and those plans have to be completed according to certain strictures. Unless you have a natural knack for architectural drawing, it’s worth it to at least consult with a professional builder to be sure that your plans are safe and legal.
Sure, a deck can be a beautiful addition to your home, but that beauty is only worth as much as the safety of the structure. The deck materials must be treated properly to ensure that weather conditions won’t allow rotting, and the deck’s foundation must be properly installed, with the concrete foundation of the posts located below the frost line. You’ll also need to ensure that the ledger (the beam attaching the structure to the house) is properly stable. Even if you’re confident in creating a deck design alone, hiring a professional builder can ensure that your deck is not just pretty, but will be a safe addition to your home.
An outdoor deck will be exposed to years of sun, rain, heat, and humidity. This means that any initial imperfections in boards will be magnified over the years. Hiring a professional will ensure that any flaws in your materials will be caught before the deck goes up, and ideally avoided altogether.
