As the local experts in deck building, we handle all the details:

Siting: There are many considerations, including your homes floor plan, orientation to the sun and prevailing wind, landscaping, and utility locations.

Size and shape: Decks are often thought of as have distinct outdoor “rooms.” There may not be any walls, but your deck may need to accommodate a cooking area, a dining area, a spa area, and a lounging area.

Traffic flow: For decks upon which a variety of activities take place, it’s important to plan for traffic flow.

Railing styles: Railings are often the first thing you notice about a deck! Let us help you chose a type that suits your home and landscape – and that ensure the safety of your family and friends.

Privacy: We can offer solutions to homeowners who want privacy and have close-by neighbors, including trellises and pergolas.

Comfort: A deck isn’t going to get used when the sun is blistering hot or when it’s raining. Ask us about roomy retractable awnings that provide protection from the elements without cluttering up the deck.

What type of deck construction materials are right for you?

Vinyl Deck

For a low-maintenance alternative to wood decking and railings, consider a composite or vinyl product.

For a low-maintenance alternative to wood decking and railings, consider a composite or vinyl product.

Vinyl decking products are available in many forms, including hollow extrusions and cellular (solid) products. The former are used for railings as well as decking.
The latter enable manufacturers to create decking products with a more wood-like appearance.

Pros: Vinyl products are now available in styles that look like wood but won’t warp, splinter, rot, split or blister. Dirt can be washed off with a sponge and hose or with a pressure washer.

Cons: Initial material costs are significantly more than for a wood deck. Vinyl becomes more cost-competitive, however, when you factor in ongoing costs of pressure washing, waterproofing, and re-staining. Vinyl is generally considered environmentally unfriendly. Toxins are produced in its manufacture, and it is difficult to recycle.

Composite Decking

Composite decking from Harmony Home ImprovementComposite decking, aka engineered wood products, come in a bewildering number of variations. Some offer solid boards while others are hollow. Some are “capped” or “co-extruded” with a layer of PVC while others are not. Some require multiple components for assembly while others are more like building with wood. What is common to all is they are made with recycled fibers, plastics, and binding agents.

Pros: Like vinyl decking, composite decking is pre-finished. They don’t need staining or painting and require little maintenance. Dirt can be washed off with a mild detergent and a hose. Composites are environmentally friendly, too. Up to 95 percent of materials used in manufacture are from recycled sources. They include materials as diverse as wood flour, rice hulls, and plastic containers.

Cons: Composites are susceptible to scratching, staining, and fading. In addition, the cost of composite boards can run twice as much as pressure-treated wood.

Wood Deck

Wood is the most popular decking material because of its natural appearance, versatility, and cost.

Wood is the most popular decking material because of its natural appearance, versatility, and cost.

Wood is the traditional material for building decks, with pressure-treated Southern Yellow Pine being the most popular. Cedar, redwood, and some exotic species are also available.

Pros: Wood can be crafted in a wide variety of styles and painted or stained in an infinite number of colors. The initial cost of a wood deck is significantly less than a vinyl or composite deck. Properly constructed and maintained, it will be quite durable and will last for decades. In addition, wood can withstand high winds better than other materials. Unlike petro-based materials wood, if sustainably harvested, is renewable.

Cons: Wood fencing requires more maintenance than other types of fencing. It should be rinsed off a couple of times a year. It may need to be repainted or re-stained every 3 or 4 years as well. Because of the additional maintenance required by wood, however, its cost may equal or exceed that of other fence types over its life.

The added value and space of a new deck outweighs the cost

A deck or screened porch is a good way to expand your home’s footprint without spending a lot of money. The typical wood deck cost per sq. ft. is less than 15 percent of the cost of a family room addition. A porch with roof and screening is less than 30 percent the cost of a family room. More importantly, outdoor living spaces, such as these, deliver real value. They are often enjoyed more often than many of the rooms inside your house!  When it’s time to sell your home, you can expect to recoup between 67 and 77 percent of your costs, according to the 2013 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling magazine.

If you're ready to improve the value of your home and enjoy your new space, Harmony Home Improvement is Greater Hartford, New Haven, Tolland, Middlesex & Litchfield Counties's expert deck company and we can help!
