Looking for quality decking materials to build your outdoor living space? Whether you’re a do-it-yourself deck builder or experienced deck contractor, choosing the right supplies to build a deck can seem overwhelming—especially with so many different types of wood and composite materials available.
To help you start planning your next deck project, UglyDeck.com shares three basic factors every deck builder should consider before purchasing their deck supplies:
Budget: Make sure you have a budget in mind before heading to your nearest home improvement supply store. This will help you plan the layout of the deck, discover which deck accessories you can include, and decide which decking materials will best fit your cost estimates. This will also help you make necessary compromises to ensure your decking materials meet your expectations and needs.
Environment: Snow, rain, wind, and sunlight all impact the lifespan of our outdoor deck areas. So, it’s important that you consider your local weather conditions when deciding which outdoor deck materials will improve the function and value of your home.
Maintenance: There are numerous types of deck building materials from which to choose, including wood, composite, plastic, or aluminum. And these materials require different types of maintenance to ensure their safety, look, and functionality throughout the seasons. Wood decking often requires the most upkeep from homeowners, so ask yourself how much time you’re willing to put into the maintenance of your outdoor deck. You may decide that maintenance-free decking is the best option for you or your customers.
For contractors or do-it-yourself deck builders in need of quality deck supplies, UglyDeck.com provides full maintenance-free deck installation as well as deck railings, outdoor spiral staircases, and other decking materials for individual or commercial projects.
Beyond providing the materials, our team of Minnesota deck builders are available for any design suggestions or questions you may have. Our experience means we can take a look at your outdoor deck ideas and help you decide which products, styles, and colors will give you the stunning outdoor living space you desire. And we can also ship your materials to any of the 50 states in the country.
