The Customization Process

The process of deck installation should always be handled by a skilled professional. With the increase in home-flipping and renovation shows on TV, many property owners are attempting more DIY projects themselves, but some of these jobs become much more complicated than they realize. Instead of taking this project on yourself, you can rely on our team of experienced deck builders at Rich's Construction, LLC. Our services include deck installation for customers in throughout Spartanburg County, SC.

The first step of deck installation is coming to your property to assess the yard and come up with a plan for a deck that maximizes the available space without taking up the entire outdoor area. When a deck is too large, you'll lose out on the benefits of having beautiful landscaping and grass in your yard. On the other hand, a deck that is too small may not be as functional, especially if it's not big enough to place a barbecue and/or patio furniture. In order to increase the property value, a deck should be large enough to accommodate several people standing or sitting on it at once.

After we develop the plan, the next step of deck installation involves choosing the materials for your new deck. We offer a variety of options, creating a more customized appearance for your new deck. Our installers work quickly and efficiently to provide a deck that you can start enjoying right away.

Choose Your Materials

Choose Your Materials

There are many different materials we can use to build your brand new deck or porch - your location, design, and budget will determine which materials will work best for your project. The most common materials used for deck installation and deck builds include wood, composite, and vinyl. Read the benefits of each material below.

Wood Decks

For traditionalists, wood decking is the only way to go. There is just something about the look of a freshly stained wood deck that will send shivers down your spine. And there are several advantages to wood decking. Benefits include:

  • Most affordable decking material
  • Makes a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing deck
  • Longevity
  • Easily customizable with different colored paints and stains

Low Maintenance Decks

A newer trend in the decking industry, low maintenance decks provide a less stressful decking experience for homeowners. While the deck frame is still constructed with pressure treated lumber, the flooring and railings are PVC or vinyl – providing a unique look that requires considerably less maintenance than wood decking. There are several other advantages to low maintenance decking, as well:

  • Low maintenance: We just thought we would drive this point home
  • PVC and vinyl will never rot, warp or splinter
  • PVC and vinyl do not require staining and sealing
  • Strong and durable
  • Available in an array of colors

Composite Decks

Designed to deliver incredible durability, easy maintenance and lasting beauty, composite decking offers all the beauty of wood without the hassles of continuous upkeep. Here are five key advantages of using composite decking:

  • Durability: Composite decking is designed for maximum durability. It resists fading, staining, scratching and mold, and won’t rot, crack or warp. It’s also insect-proof and splinter-free, making it safer and more comfortable for families with kids and pets.
  • Low Maintenance: With composite decking, you never need to worry about sanding, staining or painting. Just an occasional soap-and-water cleaning is all that’s needed to maintain stability and beauty for decades. Trex decking even comes with a 25-year Fade and Stain Warranty, ensuring that it will continue to look and perform as well as the first day it was installed.
  • Sustainability: Composite decking provides the look and feel of wood without the environmental impact. The deck boards are made using recycled content, including reclaimed industrial wood scraps and recycled plastic from common items such as shopping bags and newspaper sleeves.
  • Value: Although the initial cost of composite decking can be higher, when you factor in the cost of ongoing maintenance required with a wood deck, a composite deck can end up paying for itself in well under 10 years.
  • Aesthetics: Featuring high-definition wood grain patterns and rich, saturated colors, composite decking looks and feels more natural than ever before. Color options range from deep earth tones to spicy reds and pristine greys, including tropically-inspired boards that feature the distinct streaked look of exotic hardwoods. In addition to the range of decking looks available, homeowners also can find a wide selection of composite accessories, such as railings, stairs, gates, pergolas and furniture, to create a truly customized outdoor space.

Vinyl Decks

Vinyl is a material that is designed to be incredibly durable and to have low maintenance requirements over time in comparison to wood. It is a strong material that will not splinter, warp or crack. It also will not require regular sealing or staining to protect it from exposure to the elements like wood requires. Some types of vinyl are manufactured to take on the look of real wood, and many who step foot on a vinyl deck may not be able to tell that it is not real wood. However, the look of the wood-like vinyl will continue to be fabulous over time because of the durability and weather-resistance features of the vinyl. This means that you can spend less time taking care of the vinyl deck and more time enjoying it when you choose to install a vinyl deck.

Vinyl is a unique material that is available in a wide range of styles. While some vinyl has a wood-like appearance that is difficult to differentiate from real wood, there are also other style options. For example, some vinyl is manufactured to have a flat or uniform hue. Other types of vinyl are designed to look to look mottled or even like granite. This gives you greater flexibility of what your finished vinyl deck project will look like. In some cases, homeowners will blend multiple materials together to create a beautiful design, and others may simply want to use a single material. With so many more design options available, you can rest assured that you will love the aesthetic appeal of a vinyl deck.

If you are interested in installing a new deck or in renovating an existing deck, you may want to take a closer look at what vinyl has to offer as a material option. Some may be drawn to vinyl because of its low repair and maintenance needs or its long lifespan, and others may be drawn to the material because of its beautiful look. For many, the multitude of benefits make this a more desirable option over wood. Rich's Construction, LLC is an established deck service provider that works with both wood and vinyl for repairs, maintenance and installation, and are excited to enhance your home's curb appeal with a beautiful new deck!
