Do you wish you could spend more time outdoors entertaining, or spending time with your family? Is your existing deck too small for gatherings? Do you have a patio that is sinking or uneven? Or do you have a small staircase with nowhere to sit or spend time outdoors? Maybe it’s time to consider building a new deck so that you can spend more time outdoors with family and friends.
As one of New Jersey’s Premier Deck Builders, we have built many new decks large and small. Our streamlined process makes it easy for our clients to turn their visions into reality. When you get a new deck from Util Construction, it comes with one of the best warranties on the market, giving you peace of mind that if anything happens, we’ve got you covered.
Enjoy Time Outdoors
Having a new deck allows you to enjoy more time outdoors with your friends and family, leaving you with the space opportunity to have larger gatherings and cookouts. You can sit around your fire pit while making s’mores with family and friends in the evening, or drink your coffee on a early Sunday morning. Investing in a new deck not only gives you more space and opportunity for friends, but it also leaves you feeling accomplished and happy about your home.
Low Maintenance Materials
While we offer pressure treated wood decks, we also build composite decks. With a composite deck, you have little to no maintenance at all. This makes your life easier rather then dealing with a wood deck that needs to be sand and stain on a yearly or bi-annual basis. Composite decks require less maintenance, if it gets dirty you can wash it with hose, if it’s extra dirty you can wash it with soap, water, and broom. Now if it gets extremely disgustingly dirty then you can wash it with a pressure washer, Eliminating the need to sand and stain.
Increases Property Values
Many home renovation projects can seem daunting, like adding or building a new deck. Did you know that building a deck or improving a deck can boosts your homes resale value. With very few considerations you can improve your ability to relax outside of your home and improve the resale value if you decide to move. On average you will recoup over 80% of the costs of your new deck if selling your home immediately. However, your homes value increases 8-10% per year, so within 2-3 years you can realistically collect roughly 100% of your deck investment while you get to enjoy the deck.
Every new deck requires a permit application. Util Construction will have a licensed architect draw up building plans for your deck project and submit them along with the permit application for your project. Every township has different timeframes for permit approvals, however the average timeframe can range between 4-12 weeks depending on the season.
Once your township approves the building permits for your project, we will schedule your footing installation. This is the very first step in the building process. Most townships require a footing inspection prior to the frame installation depending on the type of footings we are installing. Util Construction will keep you in the loop regarding each of your project milestones.
When your footing inspection is completed, Util Construction will begin the installation of your deck frame. We use #1 grade ground contact pressure treated framing with galvanized hardware which is made to last over 25-years.
When the frame installation is complete, we will schedule the framing inspection with your township. Upon completion of the inspection, Util Construction will begin the installation of the decking that you have selected for your project. All of our decking comes with the best warranties in the industry, giving you peace of mind.
Railings & Other Options Installation
One of the last parts of the deck to be installed is the railings. Once your railings are installed, we then install your other optional items such as LED lighting, skirting, railing gates. Now you'r all set to enjoy your newly built deck.
