Deck Builders Mt Pleasant SC
Being outdoors with nice weather for most of the year is why people live in Charleston South Carolina. What better way to enjoy our beautiful weather and scenery then sitting on your outside patio? Building a deck/patio isn't rocket science but there are some must know tricks that require a professional to construct a safe and long lasting porch for you to enjoy. Give Precision Construction a call if you are considering building a new deck or replacing your existing outdoor patio. There are many new non-wood decking products on the market that are made to last forever without need of maintenance that look even better than wood.
The attached image is here to show you primary features of a outdoor patio to be safe and last for a long time. Depending on how your outdoor patio deck is designed can change some of the architectural features, but for the most part all decks should be built using this format. Charleston South Carolina deck builders have to be especially careful to build a solid structure because of the ever present danger of hurricanes.
Most home owners in the Charleston South Carolina area build their decks using a wood species of some sort; be it pine (most affordable), cedar, teak, or ipe (Brazilian hardwood) however all of these woods need maintenance and upkeep to retain their natural beauty. The problem with using exotic hardwoods like ipe or teak is that these wood species come from very fragile eco systems in Asia or Latin America which inhabit many endangered and threatened animals. The good news when using pine is that it is very fast growing and it can be easily replanted and harvested in less than 40 years and there are many farms around the world that grow pine just for building purposes. Those of us living in very hot rainy areas like the coast of Charleston S.C., who want decks desire the hearty qualities of these exotic hardwoods from Africa, Asia, and Brazil. But dont' think or care that it takes hundreds and hundreds of years for these trees to mature which are vital to the survival of thousands of animal and plant species, which also protect against global warming, and who are responsible for the overall health of our planet.
look just like wood. Many deck and patio builders in Mount Pleasant, Daniel Island, Kiawah, and the Islands are using composite wood (pvc) or vinyl product decking by companies like Azek, Trex, or Genovation.
PVC or vinyl decking manufacturers have gone to great lengths to produce a material that not only offers you many styles and colors but also will withstand all harsh weather conditions.
If you are in the market for a new outdoor patio deck at your home and you live in Kiawah, Folly Beach, Sullivan's Island or the Charleston SC area please consider the planet and the animals you might be effecting before choosing . Composite decking is usually more expensive then pine, but the same price as the exotic hardwoods and last longer, and requires no staining or maintenance like wood.
