How to Get The Deck You Want

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 4 July , 2018

If you’re thinking of expanding your home living space by adding a deck, you need to take the time to get your ducks in a row so that the finished project will more closely match your ideas. , In this issue, we’ll take you through the steps of what to consider and share advice for selecting the right San Diego deck contractor.

How do I know what kind of deck I want?

The most important first step is to know how you plan to enjoy your deck. For example, if you hope to frequently eat outdoors, be sure that your table will fit comfortably, and that you and your guests will have plenty of room to move freely about. If chilling in the sun is in your deck plans, make sure you have a section that has plenty of room for lounge chairs and a low table.

These are just a few examples, but the key is to design a deck – either by yourself or by relying upon the expertise of a San Diego deck designer and provider – that will enable you to get the most out of it.

One step in making sure you’re on the right path with your design is to use stakes and strings to outline the measurements of the deck. This enables you to see if you have enough space for your deck design.

How do I select the right deck contractor?

It pays to be selective with your choice for a deck contractor. If someone in your neighborhood has recently installed a deck, ask about their experiences with the provider. Also, check online reviews and recommendations for San Diego deck contractors.

Once you’ve narrowed your list of possible providers, plan on interviewing them. Here are a few questions you definitely want to ask.

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • Do you guarantee your work with a warranty?
  • Do you have experience handling concerns regarding permits?

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
