If you are looking for a cheaper option, consider using composite plastic wood lumber to build your deck. For those wondering what is a composite deck material, it is an alternative option to typical lumber that consists of a combination of wood and plastics. This unique blend of materials makes composite wood very durable and moisture resistant. Composite is both easy to install and maintain, and a great option for decking material for homeowners on a budget. In addition, composite wood is a great option for accessories such as deck railings and balusters because it is strong and durable, providing excellent support for these structures. Composite materials are also great to use for wooden pool decks. The material used to build a pool deck must be durable enough to withstand the exposure to water splashes and moisture that is inevitable with this type of structure.

One of the first things to consider in your home deck construction plans is the material that you will be using. The most popular material used for outdoor construction is wood because of its natural durability against the elements. Wood for decking comes in many different types including timber, composite, and tropical woods that differ based on their strength and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Timber is one of the most popular outdoor deck materials because there are a variety of different brands, it is widely available, and is less expensive than other types of wood. Timber includes both hard and soft woods that can be used for any type of construction project. The best timber decking plans make use of durable softwoods such as redwood and cedar, chemically treated lumber such as fir and pine, or tropical hardwoods such as IPE and teak wood.

Patio and deck covers are becoming very popular in home remodeling because they add a nice decorative element while extending the time frame you can utilize your outdoor living space. In addition, roofs and covers also lengthen the lifespan of your deck by providing extra protection from harsh weather conditions.  The most popular covered deck roof ideas include stationary and retractable awnings, arbors, pergolas, and verandas. The most common type of roof for a deck is an awning, which is a canvas covering that is stretched over a metal frame attached to the exterior of the house. Awnings can be made of woven acrylic, polyester or vinyl to provide the most resistance to rain. A pergola is another popular roofing option that creates a shaded area made from wood or lattice.

Simple backyard ideas for a deck can really help to enhance your outside experience and turn a drab space into your own personal sanctuary. Installing light fixtures is a great way to improve the look of your deck. You can choose from many different deck lighting ideas including mounted sconces, hanging light fixtures, string lighting, and post lights. The right light fixtures can add to the visual appeal to your deck as well as extend the hours that you are able to enjoy your outdoor living area. A screen is a great addition for homeowners who want to enjoy an insect and animal free space outside. Screens can be installed to prevent unwanted pests from invading your deck or porch. This not only provides a more relaxing environment, but keeps the area cleaner as well.
