The Boring Stuff About Decks You Need to Know

The fun stuff about decks is how it’s going to look, the amenities and choosing the right decking materials.

The boring stuff is how the deck is constructed. It’s what holds up the fun stuff.  It’s true that this boring stuff is critical.  If it doesn’t hold up the fun stuff, you will have no deck or worse, you could be injured. 

There are some horrible deck builders out there.  But the horrible deck builders don’t usually make the fun stuff look good either.  In my experience, decks that look great are usually built great.  It is important that you know how your deck is being built.  However, if your deck builder has been at it for a while, and they can provide you with beautiful photos, your deck is very likely to be well built.
