If you have the time and energy a do it yourself project can be very rewarding. Whether it’s changing the brakes on your vehicles instead of taking it to a mechanic, or designing and building your own garden, it feels great to do things yourself. The sense of accomplishment is immense, especially when you succeed. We don’t want to knock people who take a do it yourself approach, in fact we encourage it, but not when it comes to building a deck. Building a deck in many ways is like building a miniature house. Maybe because it’s an extension of your house. The skills, tools, and knowledge needed to get the job done correctly, efficiently, and in a cost effective way takes years of experience. We’ve been building elite custom decks in Omaha for a long time now, and want to emphasize the importance of working with professionals when it comes to deck building in Omaha.
Mastery Takes Time
Your deck is literally an extension of your home. Would you attempt to build your own home? Maybe you would if you had mastered the skills of homebuilding. But would you build your home as a DIY project if you had no to little experience as a builder? Probably not. The same goes for decks. Although a deck may look simple at first glance they are a compilation of master planning, elite carpentry skills, and experience. Decks are not simply boards and nails, if they’re any good.
High Tech Materials
When you decide to build a deck yourself your excluding yourself from using the best materials on the market. You’re stuck with low-grade materials like the ones from box stores or pressure treated decking and railing from the local lumber yard. You can certainly build a deck with these materials, but it’s going to be of lesser quality, require more maintenance, and the life will be short. When you work with a professional deck builder you get the most up to date decking materials that are designed to last multiple years and require little to no maintenance.
Designing a functional aesthetically pleasing deck that’s going to last is not easy. It takes skill and know how that you can only get through multiple years of experience. Knowing the angles and weight distributions and all the geometric complexities that go into deck design is not something you master on the weekend. Even if you could source the best materials possible, being able to design a deck that takes in all the variable necessary to make it work and last is nearly impossible for the average DIY project.
Don’t let your next deck project last the entire summer and end up a disappointment. Work with Omaha’s elite master deck builders and get the deck you want in a time and cost efficient manner. And rest assured knowing it’s going to last years with minimal maintenance. Call us today and let’s talk about your vision for the deck you’ve been dreaming about. (402) 690-1050
