If you’re looking for a way to spiff up your landscaping this summer, adding a deck may be just what you need. Besides just looking nice, decks make your home more appealing to potential Indianapolis homeowners if you are in the market to sell your house. During the warm months, an Indianapolis deck is an extension of your house and almost functions as another room. They are perfect for summer entertaining. Teens love to gather on decks, especially if you make them comfortable by having plenty of chairs and other seating available. Especially popular with this group are hammocks and hanging chairs. As you are planning your Indianapolis deck build, take into account how many people will be using it so you know how big to build it. Decide whether the deck will be at an upper or lower level or both. Because there is usually code that needs to be followed during the construction, get some expert help in the planning. For example, in colder climates the code usually dictates that the support beams need to be sank to the proper depth below the freeze line for safety purposes. Professional Indianapolis deck builders will be able to help you with these important details, as well as be able to take into account your custom plans for the deck. Consider what type of material you want to use to build your Indianapolis deck. Wood is always a popular choice and will need to be resealed and/or stained through the years. If you choose cedar, remember that it fades to a gray color as it ages. Another choice is to build an Indianapolis composite deck, which is made from a blend of plastic and wood and is designed to look like wood. With the trend toward outdoor kitchens, you may want to consider having some of these options added to your deck. Outdoor kitchens may contain built-in grills, sinks, bars and refrigerators and are perfect for spring and summer entertaining.
