2. Designing Your Perfect Deck

Having a design is essential when building anything even a deck. You may need a design to obtain a building permit, but you will especially need a design to tell the contractor what your perfect deck should look like in Minnesota. When designing your deck decide how big you want your deck. Make sure you include enough space for all your outdoor furniture, grill and enough room to move around comfortably. One our professionals at Intelligent Design can discuss with you all the details of your design.


3. Choosing the Perfect Decking Materials

Two main types of decking materials are wood and composite. If you choose wood as your deck material, you will have many different kinds of wood that you can choose from such as pine and redwood. The initial cost of wood may be less expensive than composite material, however, there is more upkeep with a wood deck. You will need to replace wood boards as they warp and rot. You will also have to treat the wood often to keep your deck in perfect shape for years to come.


Composite decking materials are a combination of wood and plastic fibers. Initially, the cost of this is very minimal. You will not need to replace or treat the composite material.
