“We’re new to the Needham area, and I’m very excited to get to know our neighbors,” Tanya said. “But we bought a place that’s a little bit of a fixer upper. The front entrance in particular is pretty rough – there’s a little deck that’s too small for the house, and it’s in terrible condition from the previous owner’s dogs. I’m embarrassed to have anyone come over until we get it fixed.”
Creative Deck Design – Boost Curb Appeal
A front deck provides visitors with the very first clues about the people who live in the home. Is it well-designed and tidy, or has it seen better days? It’s very frustrating for homeowners who take pride in their homes and put significant time and effort into the interior to have to endure a deck that’s just not up to their standards.
Luckily, creative deck design is available in Needham. One of the first things your deck designer will do with you is determine the right size for your deck.
A deck that’s too small can seem like an afterthought to the home, and doesn’t really provide enough space for enjoying outdoor living with family and friends. Conversely, a deck that’s too large can overwhelm the appearance of the home and require a lot of maintenance. The ideal sized deck is large enough for fun without being too much work.
Keeping maintenance to a minimum while delivering powerful lasting color and superior curb appeal is the job of composite decking materials. Your Needham creative deck designer will share all of the benefits of composite decking with you, but we’ll share some of the highlights here. Composite decking doesn’t warp, twist, or split – no matter what the weather is like. It resists animal damage, both from dogs and from small wood-loving insects like termites and carpenter ants.
