Adding a deck to your home is one of the most effective means of enhancing the curb appeal of your home. Planning for the endeavor beforehand is crucial to your chances of success, and some of the crucial elements you should consider at this stage include:
Notify your Neighbors
Building a deck is a noisy endeavor and considering that the work will be taking place outdoors, your neighbors are likely to be affected by the commotion. Warning your neighbors at least a week before the Deck Builders come to the site is a good way to maintain relations. Sending a second reminder one or two days before the project begins is also advisable.
Applying for a Permit
Most states require homeowners to acquire a building permit before they can add a deck to their homes. Depending on the features involved with your fixture, you might need additional permits including electrical and plumbing. In most cases, a permit will take between two weeks to a month for approval. No work can commence before the acquisition of these licenses.
Sourcing your Material
The primary materials involved can also play a significant role in the timeline involved. Elements such as lumber and composite decking, for example, can be acquired without much fuss. Extravagant options such as rare hardwoods, however, might take a longer time to get. For high-quality decking solutions, call us today! Exponential Construction, your preferred contractor.
