Transform your deck into a unique living space

Homeowners have begun to look outdoors to create new and exciting living spaces.

The place to start is the deck. Alternative decking solutions provide a comfortable setting. Unlike traditional treated wood, composite and PVC planks offer many design options. Here are a few tips:

• Decide which design elements reflect your lifestyle and your home.

• Take a look at the primary and accent colors on your home’s exterior. Do you want your deck to blend in or complement and “frame” the outside?

• Review the colors and styles of composite and PVC decking available.

• Consider railing and fencing. Railings can match or complement your deck, adding yet another design element.
