How to Start on Your Custom Deck
Like any home remodeling project, adding a deck to your home starts with contacting the right company for the job. Our team at Advantage Home Exteriors can help you create the perfect deck. The first step is usually a meeting on the property so that we can get to know you, and the space we will be working with. During this meeting, we will want to talk about any expectations, budgetary concerns, or past projects or ideas that have caught your eye. Once we have a clear understanding of your wants and the scope of the project we will work with you to determine the best materials and design for your home.
If you are considering adding a custom deck to your home or any other remodeling project, such as a kitchen, bathroom, or basement, we can help. Schedule a meeting today to talk to our experts and start your next project.

Most decks are made with one of the following materials:
- Pressure Treated Wood
- Hardwoods (Ipe, Mahogany, ETC)
- Composite decking and vinyl
Our team has put together a chart that can provide you with a quick overview of the pros and cons of each type of material.
|Pressure Treated||Hardwoods||Composites & Vinyl|
|Maintenance||Highest maintenance level, will likely require replacement boards eventually||Moderate maintenance, may require re-sealing/staining||Lowest maintance, long lasting color and texture|
|Performance||Splinters, cracks, splits, warps, stains, and scratches easily||Minor splintering, highly resistant to rot and deterioration, does not scratch or stain easily||Overcomes performance issues of wood, can fade and scratch, lasts much longer|
|Longevity||10-15 years when maintained properly||40+ years when properly maintained||25+ years or longer when proeprly maintained|
Note: Regardless of the material, all decks should be inspected annually for safety and cleaned regularly to maintain the best appearance.
In addition to building custom decks, we also provide deck resurfacing services for homeowners with existing decks that do not quite match what you’re looking for. When we resurface your existing deck, we will remove the top boards and inspect the underlying structure to ensure it is suitable for resurfacing. If everything is still structurally sound, we can install new top boards for your entire deck to breathe new life into the space.
