Do you have a new home at Smith Mountain Lake? Or perhaps you’re giving that back waterfront area the facelift it’s been needing. Any way you look at it, chances are you’re looking at a new deck for your home. There are so many choices to make, it almost boggles the imagination… Do I try this on my own or do I need a contractor? What style of deck is best for our way of living at the lake? What would be the best materials to use if I really want a quality job? Should I go with the new synthetic decking alternatives or should I stick with wood? Where can I go to get some really great design ideas for my new deck? This is literally just the tip of the iceberg.
I found another website that may be just the ticket for those and the many, many other questions you’re facing about your new outside addition. It’s called decks.com and they have a large supply of resources for those who want to do it themselves to get answers to your project questions.
Some of the topics covered are deck care, before building a deck, deck materials, deck foundations, ledger boards, support columns, support beams, framing, and deck industry news.
On the right-hand side of the website, you’ll also find some very handy links to some of the best decking vendor resources for supplies and accessories. To top it all off decks.com features an extensive gathering of decking photos to help you get more ideas for your next “outdoor room”.
When you’re getting a start on that new deck, be sure to visit our friendly local building suppliers at Smith Mountain Building Supply and Capps Building and Supply Center. So before you get going on your new decking project, get going to the decks.com website!
