Metamorphosis Construction is an experienced team of professionals with years of experience building decks, installing hot tubs and spas, and even completing backyard remodeling. To make the deck building process collaborative between the client and us, we explain the entire procedure to them for full transparency and better communication.
1. Choosing the Perfect Design and Materials:
The first step in our deck building process is to survey your home and suggest materials and styles for your deck that would look best. If you have custom specifications for your deck, our building team will be more than happy to accommodate your requests. A blueprint is obtained for your desired deck, which is a rough diagram of how your deck would look like with the correct dimensions. There are several options to choose from depending upon your home and your budget for the project: multi-tier, wrap-around, attached, and detached deck. After the design has been finalized, our team will get onto sourcing the proper materials for the job. Ironbark, treated pine, and tallowwood are some common timbers used for deck building.
2. Requesting Permits:
For building a deck, there are some safety regulations to be followed and obtaining the construction permit. Depending on your municipality, a construction permit would be necessary before the beginning of the project. After the permit has been approved, the plans for the deck will need approval before the builders can begin working.
3. Getting Your Home Prepared:
To build your deck, the site of the deck needs to be prepared beforehand. The project builder will outline the shape of your deck with string and remove any sod before beginning the digging. After it has been confirmed that there are no underground facilities in the digging area, the builder will move on to digging for the location of holes and piers.
4. Building the Deck:
The building stage will begin when the builders start setting the footings and installing the ledger boards. Support posts for your deck will be installed next. After the beams have been attached and the joists have been installed, the builders will finally start nailing down your decking boards. Lastly, your decking will be trimmed, and additional features like stairs and railings will be installed.
