If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t use your backyard as much as you’d like. Maybe you have decking but it’s not big enough, or maybe you don’t have decking at all! A decking addition is a great way to maximize your outdoor living space and enjoy the benefits of being outside. In this blog post, we will discuss the many benefits of having a deck and how to get the most out of your outdoor space.
It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning Your Dream Deck Project
Winter woes got you down? Start planning your dream deck! A deck addition can add value to your home and make your backyard the perfect spot to relax in the summer. Whether you’re looking for a place to entertain guests or just want a private oasis to call your own, a deck is the perfect solution.
What To Consider For Your Deck Project
There are many factors to consider when planning your deck addition, such as size, shape, and style. You’ll also need to decide what type of materials you want to use. Wood is a popular choice because it’s durable and affordable, but there are also many synthetic materials that are low-maintenance and weather-resistant.
Size of Decking
How much space do you have to work with and what do you want to use it for? If you want to use your deck for dining and entertaining, you’ll need a larger space than if you just want a place to relax.
Shape of Decking
The shape of your deck is also an important consideration. If you have a small backyard, consider a rectangular or square deck. If you have more room to work with, consider adding curves or angles to the design.
Style of Deck
There are many different styles of decks to choose from, so take some time to browse pictures online and get inspired. Do you want a traditional wooden deck? A covered deck? Check out our design portfolio for some inspiration.
What style will match your home and who will be using the deck most often (adults, children, pets)? Consider the height of the deck, too. A low deck is perfect for lounging, while a higher deck is great for entertaining guests.
Natural wood, composite decking, or vinyl; which is best for your climate and budget? A decking expert like Green Source Pro will be able to help answer any questions you may have in this department.
Additions and Features
Railings, benches, and planters are also important considerations. What extras will make your decking perfect for you and your family’s needs?
Benefits of Composite Decking
Composite decking offers the beauty of wood and the durability of plastic. Composite decking maintains its color and beauty for years without the work of painting, staining or sealing. And, because it resists mildew, warping and insects, there’s no need to replace rotting, uneven or termite-damaged boards. At Green State Pro, we also use long-lasting timber materials.
What to Look for in a Decking Contractor
When it comes time to hire a contractor for your deck addition project, be sure to do your research. Ask around for referrals and look for contractors who are licensed and insured. Look at their previous work and be sure to get quotes from several different contractors before making a decision.

Thank you for explaining that a low deck can be great for lounging and a high deck could be great for entertaining. I’ve been wondering what kind of deck we should be building in our backyard. I think that a low deck could be a good idea for us so we can take advantage of it even when we aren’t entertaining guests.
It’s cool that you mention that having a deck added to your home gives you more space to spend time outside. I like having my friends over for barbecues during the summertime, so I’m considering hiring someone to add a deck to my home next month. I’m going to search for a supplier of decking materials in my area that I can use.
