Types of decks
It’s important to research and know what kind of deck you want. We’ve seen and built a variety of decks and can cater you deck to fit your lifestyle. Whether you want a solid wood deck made out of cedar or a composite deck, a single tier deck or a multi-tier deck, we have the ability to meet your needs.
There is a wide range of materials Above and Beyond can use to suit your needs and create the best looking deck for you, such as:
- a. Cedar
- b. Redwood
- c. Pressure Treated
To start, we have cedar. Cedar decks are unmatched in beauty as the natural wood gives your home a look and feel of perfection. Cedar is also cheaper than most wood deck materials. This makes it one of the best woods for deck building.
Then, there’s redwood. Redwood decks are darker than most, but they compliment any home well. Redwood can last well over a decade for those who plan to maintain the deck and continue to use it throughout the years.
Pressure-treated wood decks are a bit different than the last two. These decks are built using wood that has been treated to be resistant to rot and the various elements of nature. Pressure-treated decks help to embellish the look and appeal of your home, and they’re affordable too.
Wood Deck Designs
When you design or remodel your deck, it’s important to think about aesthetics. A deck expands the use of your home throughout the year and should be multi-purpose in nature. You should be able to eat, drink, hangout, play cards, take pictures, or view the scenery. Not only does it add more square footage to your home, it allows for it to be more versatile as well.
Deck building also creates a complimentary feature for your home. Depending on the material you use, you can create a unique look. Use a darker redwood to create a more rural look that blends in with the colors of nature. Lighter woods can make an area seem more modern, urban, or feel more open.
Perhaps you want a deck that will allow you to paint and change the stain color to help update the look easily. A pressure-treated deck gives you the option to revamp your look as you please. You can update the appearance of your deck to match and compliment your home with ease.
Wood Decks Ideas
As the seasons change, so should your deck. At Above and Beyond, we can build a deck that is versatile all year long. You can customize your deck with an outdoor cooking space, equipped with a grill, sink, and other kitchen appliances for a perfect summertime BBQ set-up. Meet with your friends and neighbors to watch the fireworks and enjoy a piece of watermelon with the kids.
Perhaps you prefer the winter months more and expect to spend your time outside the colder it gets. We can create a deck that features a hot tub as the center piece. Or we can create a long balcony for you to sit on while you watch as deer pass through the winter snow.
Wood decks have the capacity to turn themselves into anything you want. We build our decks to stand strong against the elements of every season.

Sometimes our seasons are busy, and we don’t have as much time to keep up with a wood deck. Composite decks are ideal for fast-paced individuals who still value the outdoors without the hassle. Composite decks can add value and a new feature to your home that expands the size and look. These decks are made from boards comprised of wood fiber bonded with recycled polyethylene. The best part about composite material is the low maintenance. They are easy to wash, clean, and continue to upkeep as each season comes and goes.
Composite decks feel smooth and look sleek. More homes are adding composite decks because of their appearance, low cost, and low maintenance.
Composite materials also make it easy to shape your deck how you want. You can add a rounded seating area at the corner of your home, or you could have multiple levels to your deck, each with its own purpose. For example, one area could feature a fire pit. A few steps up, you could have an eating area, and another level could house your gardening needs.
More benefits of composite deck building:
- 1. Safety – Composite is slip-resistant and splinter free, and it is completely barefoot friendly.
- 2. Maintenance – Super easy to clean, and you don’t need to paint, stain, or seal it.
- 3. Durability – Typical deck materials can weather, meaning they can fade and warp with time. Composite material is perfectly suited to handle with environmental impacts, such as harsh rains, ice, snow, and blistering heat. Because of its UV-stability, composite materials won’t crack or break down due to sun exposure, and it will never mold. Composite decks can last up to 30 years.
- 4. Design – Visual pleasing and can match the look of traditional lumber. Comes in a variety of colors that will compliment your outdoor living space.
- 5. Cost – The initial cost of wood in most cases are less in comparison to composite. However, when you add in the cost of maintenance for a wood deck, the benefits a wood-plastic composite deck outweighs the traditional wood material.
- 6. Environment – Many composites are made from waste such as sawdust, used plastic milk bottles and shopping bags – materials that would have ended up in a landfill.
