In the Middle Ages, unscrupulous sales people would hawk their wares in the market by shouting. A term was coined to describe these charlatan salespeople: quacksalvers. That was eventually shortened to “quack” and has been applied ever since to swindlers, especially in the medical field.
At UglyDeck.com, we have been called the Deck Doctors, but we are no quacks! As your premier Minnesota deck builders, we completely stand behind our deck designs and maintenance-free decking material. Before you build a deck, come see us at UglyDeck.com. With so many factors to consider when planning an outdoor deck, it’s highly valuable to have our experienced team walk you through questions and tips, such as how to:
- Think about your needs and wants. How will you be using the outdoor deck? Do you want a private retreat or a space for entertaining? Do you want a covered or an open deck?
- Think about where you want to put the deck. Is it sunny or shady most of the time? What is the terrain like? How much privacy do you desire? What will the deck be used for? Will heavy objects/furniture (e.g., a hot tub) need to be supported? Do you want it near the kitchen?
- Think about legal restrictions. Do you have Homeowner Association or other covenant rules to follow? Are there any zoning ordinances that may limit the size of your deck? Will a building permit be required?
- Think about the future. Will you need deck railings appropriate for small children? Will steps become a problem for aging members of the family? Do you want to avoid annual maintenance?
