Type Of Upgrades And Materials

There are a lot of options you can choose for your deck building in Arvada CO. All materials will bring a different level of functionality, and all extra features will make your deck feel more comfortable.

At our on-site consultation we’ll walk you through the best options for your particular situation. Until then, let’s see what are the most popular features and materials.

Deck Frame

The deck frame is what keeps the structure up, so it needs to be strong enough to sustain heavy weights.

The traditional material for deck framing remains the Grade 1 pressure treated wood rated with ground-contact. It’s strong, relatively durable, and also inexpensive. However, they’re not as reliable as metal frames.

Metal frames from brands like Fortress Building Products are a much better option, but they’re also more expensive. They’ll literally lose longer than your decking surface will. Needless to say, metal frames are much stronger, more durable, immune to rot, pests, and the elements, making them no match for wood frames.

Your decking surface will finish the vibe of your new outdoor space. When choosing the decking material, you’ll need to consider aesthetics and functionality, but also cost.

For example, woods like Ipe, mahogany, or teak give your deck an upscale look and a natural vibe as well, but they come at a higher price point. At the same time, pressure treated wood is the most affordable material, but the maintenance costs will add up over the years.

To avoid maintenance costs and intensive maintenance labor, composite decking is the best option. Composite needs no staining, sealing, or frequent repairs like a wood deck does.

Here at Land Designs By Colton, we work with top brands in the composite decking industry like Trex, TimberTech, and Fiberon.

Railings are a must, and if you were thinking about skipping them just to save some money, that wouldn’t be possible. For decks elevated from the ground, as per the building codes in Arvada, you’ll need railings.

Aluminum railings are the best railings you can get. They’ll boost the safety of your deck while also matching the wood material, creating a beautiful space that’s nothing short of impressive.

Composite is the second option, but far from being as good as metal. They’re still more durable than wood, but they come at a similar price as aluminum, so why not choose the premium option for the same amount of money?

Deck lights are mandatory for decks with a set of stairs, and because most decks will have a few steps, skipping lights is a no-go. And why would you?

Deck lighting gives a sense of comfort and safety on your deck, especially at night. They create a cozy atmosphere, ideal for a board game night or simply to kick back with your friends.

We’ll recommend multiple lighting options based on two things: low-voltage lighting with a long lifespan. You don’t want your electricity bill to skyrocket, and you don’t want to have to replace them in a few years’ time.
