While the time of year for outdoor living is starting to come to an end, there is no better time than now to start planning your dream deck. Preparation is a very big part of the process and this can be done in the winter months in order to get your outdoor entertainment area ready for those beautiful warm spring days.
Here are some quick tips to help you get started designing a composite deck:

Decide on Decking Details
More and more homeowners want their outdoor spaces to be an extension of the indoors – creating functional yet aesthetically pleasing spaces that reflect a cohesiveness in their personal style and design. Plastic decking gives you an eco-friendly decking alternative that can last you for years. You’ll need to decide early in the planning process if you want to incorporate features such as built-in seating, planters and outdoor storage and kitchens, as well as elements such as a pergola, spiral stairs or outdoor lighting. These features add comfort, character and convenience to your space while showcasing your unique touch.
Understand Costs and Value
To ensure your dream deck remains within reach, keep costs in mind. Several factors will affect the price, including the size and shape, along with any extras you incorporate.
When evaluating value, think beyond the initial material and labour costs and think about the long-term payoff. Over the life of a composite deck, the reduced maintenance costs of simple soap and water cleanings help balance out expenses over the long run – not to mention the value of all the time spent enjoying the deck rather than maintaining it.
