Design the Perfect Deck for Your Backyard

At Exterior Design + Decks, we know that every homeowner will want their own unique ideas and preferences when it comes to the design of their deck. Some homeowners may only have a small area to work with and will therefore want to maximize the space while still staying within their boundaries. Other homeowners may want a spacious deck with plenty of room for multiple tables when they host parties. Luckily, our team can customize your deck design based on your needs. We will speak with you to get a better idea of your goals and then develop a design to help you achieve them.

What Should I Build My Deck Out Of?

One of the primary decisions you’ll have to make when designing a new deck for your Atlanta home is what material to build your deck with. When you work with us, you get the chance to completely customize your deck design from start to finish. We have two different material options and can show you various samples to help you get a better idea of how they’ll match with the current décor of your home. Our two material options are:

  • Wood
  • Composite

Natural Wood Decks

Wood decks provide a natural look that can be further customized with a variety of paint or stain colors. The possibilities are truly endless, and you can even change your mind and use a different color stain for a new look throughout the years. Wood is also an affordable option for those on a budget. Some of the most popular wood options we offer for deck construction include:

  • Epay: This type of decking looks beautiful and is durable, too. Epay decking is dense and contains plenty of natural oils to help prevent mold, rot, and termites.
  • Cedar: This classic wood option provides a stunning natural appearance. It is also very affordable and incredibly durable.
  • Garapa Gold: This is a type of Brazilian hardwood that offers a vibrant, honey color that eventually deepens to a beautiful golden brown. It can deliver the same beauty and performance as teak without the additional cost.

Long-Lasting Composite Decks

Your other material option is a composite deck, which is a man-made material composed of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastic. This material is very durable and requires less maintenance than natural wood decks and gives you the option of color customization. Though composite decks do not have the full look of natural wood, current advancements have allowed this material to look more like wood than ever before. It mimics the natural wood grains and color variation that real wood has, with the added benefit of enhanced durability. We offer a single type of composite material known as Trex®, which is the current industry leader in terms of composite decking.

We Have All the Add-Ons You Need

Whether you choose natural wood or composite decking, we have all the extras you need to tie your design together. No deck is complete without some final touches, both for aesthetic and safety purposes. We’ll ensure these final touches match the rest of your deck design to create a beautiful and cohesive look. We can provide the following deck additions:

  • Railings
  • Posts
  • Bannisters
  • Treads
  • Fascia boards

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Deck?

The cost of building a deck will vary greatly depending on a number of factors. For example, the size of the deck is a major contributing factor to price. The larger the deck, the more expensive it will be due to the extra materials and labor needed to build it. The material you choose will also influence the price of your deck. In most cases, composite decking is more expensive than natural wood, but the benefit to this extra cost is that it is very durable and lasts longer. At the very minimum, you can expect to invest at least a few thousand dollars into a deck. We can provide you with a more detailed estimate once you tell us more about your plans.
