Whether you can smell the ocean or not, having a deck is a great way to get out and enjoy the Boston outdoors. Many people consider building their own deck, and, to be honest, many of them end up regretting it. Here are a few reasons why you should hire a licensed deck builder when it comes time for your next home improvement.
Safety for you
Let’s admit it, there’s always a considerable danger when you take on any home remodeling project. If you’re tearing out an old deck there’s always the chance of stepping on a nail. Then there’s the danger of the miter saw, as well as the chance that a board will seesaw and whack you in the head. Why take the risk?
Safety for what you put on the deck
Weight and support has to be carefully considered when you’re putting something heavy on the deck. The proper amount of joists have to be used to support something like a hot tub, or extra reinforced if you plan on having large parties. And when it comes to multi-level decks, we can tell you how important it is to get a professional deck builder to do the proper weight calculations.
Expanding your options
We’ve written entire blogs on the subject, but it’s worth repeating…a deck contractor can give you amazing options for your deck that might be out of the realm of your construction abilities.
