Voyage Decking

Deckorators is known for its water and ground friendly decks. Voyage decking can be installed in or in contact with the ground or water. The deck absorbs no moisture. It will not splinter, sag, chalk, or crack. It’s finished with a stain and fade-resistant cap stock.

  • Costa
  • Mesa

This technology allows the decking to have virtually no thermal expansion or contraction. It makes for a powerful and stable deck that absorbs no moisture. The Deckorators Vault Deck is similar to the Voyage Decking, but without the enhanced traction. It’s still a great deck that can be installed on ground or water surfaces. Colors for the Vault Decking lineup include: 

  • Dusk
  • Mesquite
  • Hickory

Frontier Decking

The Frontier family is a non-variegated deck board for those looking for a more traditional look for their outdoor living space. Like Voyage and Vault, Frontier is also made with Eovation technology providing superior strength to weight ratio and is rated for water and ground surfaces. The lightweight boards are easy to handle and make a great option around pools, spas, or decks. They never splinter, sag, chalk, or crack so you never need to worry about walking around with bare feet. Color chooses for the Deckorators Frontier family include:

  • Summit
  • Woodland
  • Prairie

Heritage & Vista  Decking

A Deck is an Outdoor Living Room

The Omaha custom deck builder you hired just finished building your dream deck. Everything matches the design perfectly, and you couldn’t be happier. You thank your deck contractor, and now the fun begins. A deck is not just a deck – it’s an outdoor living space that can become as popular or more popular than your living room.

Get Some Fresh Air and Sun

One of the best things a deck will do for you is get you outside. It gives you an excuse to soak up some vitamin D and take in some fresh air.  Nothing revitalizes and energizes like getting out of the house and into the elements, even if just for a short period.

The Perfect Place to Entertain

When you have friends and family over a deck provides the perfect setting for entertaining. Everyone feels more energized outside, and the energy will fuel your gathering. The best conversations are had on a porch swing or patio chair. Entertaining in the open space of your deck eliminates claustrophobia and gives guests the open space to feel comfortable.  

Your Second Kitchen

There’s no better place for grilling, smoking or sautéing than your deck. Cooking in the outdoors eliminates smells in your home, and produces delicious meals everyone loves. From grilling steaks, burgers and kabobs to slow smoking a brisket your deck is the perfect second kitchen. Dessert? How about roasting some marshmallows using the fire pit? 

Let There Be Light!

Enjoying your deck doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Incorporate low voltage lights on your deck to enjoy it long into the night. You can add lights along the steps and railing, and even adjustable lighting to set the perfect mood.

Always the Right Temperature

If you get a little chilly, you don’t have to abandon your deck. The addition of a fire pit or patio heaters can keep you comfortable when the temps drop. Sitting in the warmth of a flickering fire and breathing the fresh cool outdoor air is the perfect setting for great conversation.

Make it Comfortable

Don’t forget the furniture! There are more options than lawn chairs when it comes to deck furniture. Outdoor wicker couches and chairs allow you to create a second living room in your backyard. You can even match the cushions to your house.

Start Enjoying Your Outdoor Living Room

There are so many things you can do for your custom deck to make it as cozy and get maximum use out of it. Your deck is a living space, make sure to maximize your enjoyment. If you have questions about how to best utilize your deck, or if you’re ready to start shopping for your deck give us a call today.

Add a Pergola to Your Deck

Nebraska homeowners who have discovered the joy of relaxing and entertaining in their backyards are often considering the next enhancement they can add to their outdoor space. Adding a pergola to your deck or outdoor space comes with a lot of benefits. We’re known for installing elite custom decks in Omaha, but we can also build you a custom pergola. Let’s take a look at how a pergola can improve your outdoor living space.

Extend Your Space with A Pergola

If you already have a deck or patio, one of the reasons you probably added it was to extend your outdoor living space. If you’ve been enjoying it, you might have found that during particular weather extremes it becomes uncomfortable to use. A pergola allows you to use your deck no matter what the weather is doing. It protects you from harsh sun rays in the middle of Summer and can keep the snow away in Winter. You can even outfit a pergola with retractable shade covers for more shade when you want it, and less when you don’t.

Better Entertainment

A pergola can become the focal point for your outdoor living space. They can provide support for everything from chandeliers and ceiling fans to small speakers, strings of lights, and even fabric. Your only limit is your imagination. If you find yourself entertaining family and friends, or just enjoy spending time outdoors, a pergola is a great addition.

Custom Design Options

Your pergola will be custom built with cedar wood. Cedar is a good choice for pergolas because of its natural insect resistance. It’s a beautiful wood that looks great right from the sawmill. If you leave it untreated, it will turn to a soft gray, or you can seal it to hold its color.

Ready for Your Pergola?

If adding a pergola to your deck or patio sounds good then give us a call or stop by our showroom. We can show you a large portfolio of our completed pergolas and give you an idea about design options.

Investing in a New Deck adds Value to Your Life & Your Home

A new elite deck adds tons of value to your lifestyle.  Not only that, but investing in a new deck adds value to your home. Decks are typically in the top three for return on investment. Compared to an addition or attic, building a deck costs a lot less, but provides one of the top ROI’s of any remodel project. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, a homeowner can recoup an average return of 80% on a new deck. A family room addition averages only 69%. We’ve built plenty of custom decks in Omaha over the years, and have seen what it can do for resale value.

4 Factors That Impact Your Deck Return on Investment

Decking Material

Using high-quality composite materials create a deck that will pass the test of time. Composite materials add significant value because of their durability, aesthetics, and low maintenance requirements.

Deck Size

To get the greatest value, your deck should be big enough to use as a comfortable entertainment space. Most people want a deck to enjoy barbecuing and sharing relaxed outdoor time with family and friends. It should have enough space for a grill and a large table with chairs, and some storage space doesn’t hurt.

Easy Access

Making your deck easy to access helps improve its value. A deck that can be accessed from the first-floor kitchen or living room is a lot more impressive to people than a deck built off a master bedroom on the second floor. Kitchen access is desirable because it makes it easy to bring food and other items in and out when you’re entertaining family and guests.

Wow Factor

If your deck has an impressive design, with custom railing, and a strategic layout it’s going to be more fun for you and attractive to future potential buyers. The wow factor of a custom built deck can often be the tipping point that will influence someone to want to buy your home.  

How to Get the Best Value Out of Your Deck

Remember, when you’re budgeting for a deck make sure to factor in a recoup value of 70-80%. Take into consideration the size and value of your house pre-deck. Choose a deck design and size that makes sense for your home’s size and style.  Before you sign with any deck builder go to their showroom and see the materials in person. It’s one thing to see pictures online, but when you see it in person, you can touch it, and see how it looks in different lighting.

If you stop by our showroom, we can walk you through all of the best options that will fit your budget, and even show you how our design models work. You might not commit to a new deck, but you’ll leave with a lot of knowledge that will make you an informed buyer when you decide to move forward with your new deck construction.

Spring is Around the Corner

Although it feels like warm weather is far away with all the freezing temps and snow Spring will be here soon. Now people are hustling with planning. Home shows are already beginning. Outdoor events are getting placed on calendars. The new year is in full swing. If you’re still thinking about finally getting that custom deck built it’s not too late. A custom deck in Omaha can be enjoyed for most of the year, and with cover year round. 

4 Reasons to Build a Deck Structure this Spring

A Deck Increases Your Home’s Value

Like a remodel or any home upgrade, adding an outdoor living area adds immense value to your home. You’ll get back everything you spend or more with the additional curb appeal. It will also increase your chances of selling, when and if you do sell.

Decks Built for Parties

If you enjoy having friends and family an elite custom built deck is the perfect way to add functional space where people can gather and enjoy one another. Decks are open and in the fresh air – so much better than a claustrophobic crowded room. Clean up is easy on a deck, and everybody loves a good barbecue. 

Modern Decks are Amazing

Far from porches of the past, modern decks offer designs and functionality that have to be seen in person to believe. They’re low to almost no maintenance. The longevity of a custom built deck can be 20-30 years based on materials used.

New Decks Offer New Looks

Not only are modern decks durable and functional, but they also come in nearly any look and structure style you can imagine. Using state of the art materials, you can have an exotic hardwood look to rustic pine, and more.

Merry Christmas to All

The end of the year is upon us. It’s been a wonderful year, and we’re looking forward to all the new decks in Omaha for 2019. We want to thank all of our customers and let everyone know that we’re year-round custom deck builders. That’s right; we build decks in the cold of winter. In fact, Winter is one of the best times of the year to get your elite custom deck built. Spring and Summer get very busy in the construction industry, but in Winter it nearly shuts down. So when you decide to get your deck built in the Winter, we can likely get it done a little faster.

We’ve mastered the art of year-round deck building. We’ve been successfully installing low-maintenance decks in the cold for nearly four decades!

Does Temperature Matter?

Yes, it does. Different materials require different specifications at different temperatures. As certified installers of Trex, TemberTech, Azek and Deckorators products, we know and understand how to build any time of the year. We live for building decks, and take pride in our ability to build any time of the year. If we weren’t building decks, we really wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves.  

Winter Deck Building Advantages

Start Fast – In Winter, most construction slows down or stops. Our schedule does become more flexible, and we’re able to get the job done faster because our crews can focus on fewer projects. When you get your custom deck built in the Winter, you can start faster and finish sooner.  

Lower Humidity – Low humidity can help a structure settle properly. Omaha gets a little humid in the Summer months as we know.   

Ready for Warm Weather – The nice thing about having your deck completed before nice weather comes is it will be ready to use when nice weather does arrive. While other homeowners are watching the construction crew build their decks, you’ll be BBQing and enjoying time with your friends and family as soon as the weather turns nice.

Make Your Deck a Wow Deck

Deck designs can be as simple or complex as the human imagination will allow. Some people prefer a more modest deck, while others want an elite deck design that stands out and has an abundance of attention-grabbing wow factors built in. Wow decks can be accomplished in a variety of different ways, and you can even create one on a more conservative budget. After years of building custom decks in Omaha we’ve learned a few ways to turn ordinary decks into Wow Decks. Let’s go over some options here.

Simple Wow Factors

If you’re on a tighter budget, some affordable wow factors can be done to get you closer to a wow deck. When you’re on a budget your focus should be on materials vs. layout. By adjusting a few areas on this TimberTech deck with aluminum rails we were able to make it stand out. A simple flooring pattern adds a unique twist. Flat top rails in order to hold your drinks or plants are easy enough. Beveled front corners of the deck vs. traditional square 90 degrees. Simple can have just as much “wow” factor.

Grey Custom Deck with Custom Pattern

More Elite Wow Factors

If your vision has no budget restrictions you can create a Wow Deck with multiple tiers/levels, dedicated spaces, or exotic staircases. Dramatic, multi-level decks help define spaces into distinct, usable areas. Enjoy your view with built-in elevated seating, or step down into a hot tub and lounge area. Including built-in lighting on your staircase brings it to life in a magical and functional way.

Omaha Custom Deck Builders
