Deck Design Tips

Building the right deck for your home can be a very difficult and time consuming process. Choosing the right design, colour and materials can sometimes be a bit of a headache if you’ve never had any experience in doing so. Here at Amazing Decks, our team can assist you right through the whole process from quoting and design through to finance and final construction. However, if you want to make the whole process smoother and stress-free then consider some of the tips below before you contact us:

Think about your budget

The price ranges of different decks can vary dramatically, so you must always keep your budget in mind during the initial design stages to ensure the project stays inside a realistic price range. If you are prepared before you contact us, we can often provide you with a fairly realistic quote straight away, even over the phone. This means getting your tape measure out and determining the desired height and length of your deck for us. Of course, you won’t be able to provide us with every detail and each project is completely unique, but the more information you can provide us, the more realistic your initial budget can be.

Look around for inspiration

 A lot of people don’t have the slightest clue where to start, design-wise. We suggest looking at as many photos as you can, of as many different styles as you can. This will give you more inspiration, and let you see first hand what certain colours and styles work well together. Remember, the more information you can give us up front, the easier and quicker the process will be for you from start to finish.

Inform us of any specific timeframes

 Decking projects can dramatically vary in length. The written quote and drafting of plans is always done as quickly and efficiently as possible, however, the certification process can sometimes be very slow due to reasons out of our control. If you need a deck to be finished by a certain time, it is best that you contact us as early as possible in case of any unwanted, lengthy delays.
