Purchasing new construction or “new builder homes” can be exciting. As a homeowner, you can essentially design your dream house, choosing styles and upgrades for the kitchen, flooring, bathroom materials, etc. One upgrade that is rarely sold in most home developments, however, is the deck. When you drive through these communities, you might notice that instead of first or second story decks, there will be French or sliding glass doors with a piece of fence placed directly in front of it. This is so the homeowner can add the deck as an upgrade, or purchase the home as is and build the deck after closing. As we all know, life happens, so sometimes decks don’t get built for years, if ever!
Jeff Gottlieb worked with homeowners in Randallstown, Maryland to complete their new deck, so they could spend more time enjoying the outdoor space the house was always meant to have! Like many new builder communities, our Baltimore County customers needed to adhere to their HOA rules and regulations for additional structures. Jeff helped design a beautiful, functional outdoor space that not only satisfied the HOA but also complements the home’s design and stays true to the customer’s vision.
Before: New Construction in Baltimore County Without Deck
Our fast working crews constructed a 24′ x 12′ pressure treated wood frame to support Trex Select Pebble Gray decking using hidden fasteners. Trex Select composite decking is the perfect pairing of price and minimal maintenance, and it won’t rot, warp or splinter. Pebble Gray is a light heather grey with an easy-to-maintain, wood-like grain pattern, making it the simple choice for many of our Maryland customers. A matching seam board down the center of the deck, which helps to create separation between different areas of the deck, as well as break up the break up the monotony of the horizontal boards.
Black Alta aluminum railings with black square balusters safely enclose the new space, and offers a clean, modern look. One set of 4′ wide steps lead down to the backyard with a gate at the top of the steps. Lastly, white PVC trims the fascia of the deck and sides of the new set of steps.
