The fundamental components of a deck are the foundation, the frame, the decking, and the railing. These essential elements are all that is necessary for a beautiful and completely functional deck. There are other features, however, that can add to the character of decks. Our skilled deck builders can integrate benches, planter boxes, storage containers, and lighting.
Built in benches are a great way to provide additional seating, as well as adding character. Benches are most popular on decks that are close to the ground, but can be integrated nicely into elevated decks as well. On lower decks, benches can outline the perimeter of the structure and give definition as well as privacy in some situations.
Planter boxes are a great way to accent your deck with flowers, shrubs, or other plants. We build custom planter boxes that fit the style of the structure. We typically build the custom box to fit a plastic planter container that can be easily removed for replanting or replacement.
Storage seems to be always in demand. Seat cushions, covers, umbrellas, toys, and more should not clutter the surface of your deck. Deck boxes are one solution, but these take up valuable square footage. Custom storage solutions, such as Azek’s Storage Kit
utilizes otherwise wasted space. These storage solutions are built in to the structure itself and so require planning at the time of construction.
Lighting is a great way to make your deck stand out. It provides better visibility and amazing ambiance. There are a number of different options for lighting, including: post cap lights, rail lights, riser lights, and inset button lights.
