Are wedding bells in your future – or in the future of someone you hold dear, such as your child or grandchild? A delightful tradition of yesteryear – having weddings in the family home – is making a comeback, especially as the prices of fancy wedding venues climb out of the reach of many couples.
If you’re going to have a wedding in your home, a fantastic deck can serve a number of roles. It can be the platform for family and friends to gather, provide seating and shade, be the outdoor kitchen the caterers use, and even be the stage where the happy couple tie the knot.
For best results, bring your Mass deck builders into the conversation early. Ideally, you’ll do this during the planning stages. That way you’ll get a custom deck built to your exact specifications. An experienced creative deck designer will come to you with ideas that can enhance your original concept.
For example, the choice of decking material is a subtle touch that can impact the look of your home before, during, and after the wedding. While wood is the traditional decking material throughout Massachusetts, choosing composite decking gives you the option to choose any of a multitude of colors with no need for an ongoing maintenance routine.
Composite decking is also a great choice for high traffic areas. This is great news if you’re hosting family weddings, but it’s also relevant if your calendar is full of things like kid’s birthday parties, barbecues with your buddies, hanging out with the family, or playing with the dogs. Composite decking also resists mold, mildew, and insect damage.
Bear in mind that the Massachusetts construction season is impacted by the winter weather. If you’ll need your wedding-worthy deck early in the year – think spring or early summer weddings, the time to talk to your Massachusetts deck contractor is now.
