A Tip for Deck Planning


Before you can have a deck built, you need to decide how you will use your space.

Our tip: Go outside and place your patio furniture in the area where you think you’d like a deck. Don’t forget the grill, lounge chairs and any other furniture/accessories. Also plan for the items you don’t have yet, like a fire pit or hot tub.

Give yourself space to cook and entertain and then mark the area for the deck with string, yard paint, stakes, pool noodles, whatever you have on hand. Decide if it’s enough space and then take measurements. Now you’re ready to talk to a contractor and draw up plans for your deck!

They're doing work on our house. Reliable, professional, knowledgeable and courteous.
I tapped Choice Home Remodeling for a project involving exterior doors. I spoke to the service manager, Lonnie, who was very helpful and accommodating in scheduling the work. Lonnie called me a few days later to inform me he could have the techs out two weeks earlier, which was greatly appreciated.Tim, the installer manager, and Brian arrived for the service call. From the beginning, they were very polite and professional, and upon speaking to them, I knew they were very knowledgeable and competent. Their work was performed with great precision in a timely manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Choice for any of the numerous services they provide.
Don our salesman was great. Prices are competitive. Got windows and spouting done. Great installation.
