How Design Details Can Save Money When You Build a Deck in Arlington VA

Many homeowners are unaware of how design details can save money when they build a deck in Arlington, VA. There are design techniques and construction materials that can be utilized to redefine multiple deck spaces and uses during the deck planning phase. Design details can make practical yet dynamic changes that support multi-functional outdoor spaces when you build your deck.

Experienced deck designers use various architectural techniques to design a deck to flow from space to space with smart design that defines separate areas for specific functions. One detail to consider for your Arlington Virginia deck is the, installation of a dry or rain decking system. These systems are ideal for multi-level, second story, and rooftop decks, as they create twice the extended living space for relaxation and outdoor living. Built to protect the deck substructure from rot and decay, it works like a covered porch, allowing you to enjoy the dry oasis beneath your deck.

Before you build your deck in Arlington, VA make sure to explore the simple ways these various design details can save you money:

  • Consider a combination of outdoor spaces and structures to create your individual outdoor living environment. Build a deck with a patio, or a deck with a screened porch. Use outdoor structures such as pergolas, gazebos, and arbors. They introduce visual diversity, act as shade producers, and encourage healthy transitional areas between the indoors and outdoors
  • Including different structures is also a smart way to define separate areas in any outdoor living area
  • Selecting several materials or one material in different styles or colors, such as complimentary woods or combining woods with metals or stone, enables clear definition of separate outdoor areas, such as dining and relaxing
  • A multi-level design breaks up deck and patio space for myriad purposes
  • Built-ins, including a beverage rail, seating, planters, and storage replace expensive outdoor furniture and decor
  • Planning design details, deck materials, and patterns before you build a deck is a simple, cost-effective technique used to carve out dedicated outdoor space.

Give consideration to the many design details that can save you money before you build your deck in Arlington, VA.

The Deck Doctor crew worked clean and made sure all debris was removed upon completion. They even added a "sunburst" pattern to the deck railing at the entrance to give it a more inviting look.

They began building our deck the same day as the permit was granted, and finished in two days and clean up was spotless. We are delighted by the quality of the materials and workmanship.
