Dreaming of adding a deck or two to your home? Has your existing deck seen better days? There aren’t too many people who don’t love heading outdoors for meals, entertaining, or just relaxing with friends or by oneself.

Today’s homeowners are enjoying decks and porches almost year-round. They’re a great way to boost property value while also giving you one more way to thoroughly enjoy your Long Island home. Using the most durable materials and the latest designs, FD Building Co. will install the deck you’ve always wanted.

The Beauty of Decks

Be it cedar, fir, mahogany, ipe, or composite, a deck is the way to go if you’re looking to celebrate the ideal Hamptons lifestyle. Properly installed, finished, and maintained, wood decking lasts for decades and is one of the most beautiful ways to add square foot to your home. Composite decking can be a great option for homeowners who want minimal upkeep.

Inspiring Ideas for Turning a Deck into Your Favorite Room

FD Building plans, designs, and builds your deck to your specifications and budget. From minor deck repairs to extensive multi-level new builds, our team has the expertise to tackle any deck idea you bring to the table. The results? A finished deck of quality craftsmanship, superior materials, and distinctive beauty. Our decks are designed to last.

Our design build approach to decks follows the same process as our other projects.

  • An in-home consultation where our designers get to know you and get a feel for your home and property. We talk to you about your vision for your deck or porch, learning all we can about your wants, needs, and ideas. We also use this time to discuss if your budget is feasible for the deck you have in mind.
  • We take your ideas and prepare conceptual drawings that give you basic design options that best suit your intended use of the deck.
  • Once you choose a design, we prepare detailed drawings and create a 3-D model so you can see exactly what your deck will look like.
  • Product selection is next, where we help you choose the right materials, lighting fixtures, railing, water or fire features, outdoor appliances, and more.

We then get to work constructing a deck your family will enjoy for years to come.

Fabulous and Functional Outdoor Living

There are tons of deck types to choose from including wraparound, multi-level, builder’s, and rooftop retreats. Before planning and building your new deck, here’s a quick rundown of helpful tips on everything from decks materials to decorative details.

Materials

There are more decking material choices available today than ever before. Are you a diehard genuine wood fan? Pressure-treated cedar and redwood are two good, traditional choice. Exotic woods like ipe and jarrah are also gaining popularity, as their longevity makes them just as good an option as composite.

Composite and other synthetic materials such as vinyl have revolutionized the decking industry. People love them for their low maintenance and long life. While they cost more than natural wood, the payback comes by avoiding the regular staining or painting wood decks require. The biggest disadvantage to composite decks is that they look very different from real wood. For many homeowners, this is not a problem but keep it in mind when making your decision.

Levels

Instead of building one big deck, think about a design that incorporates two or more levels. This style deck is great for entertaining and tends to provide a cozier look and feel to the space. Multiple levels also allow for different looks on each level. And if you’re putting on an upper level deck, you can break up the long and often unattractive flight of stairs that’s usually installed.

Play with Color

Don’t be afraid to consider choosing a deck color other than brown! Today’s selection of stains and decking cover a huge palette, one of which may complement your home’s exterior far better than a shade that isn’t a natural extension of your home.

Create Shade

Summers in the Hamptons have plenty of cool breezes, but when the sun’s overhead it’s hot! A pergola turns your deck into a 3-D outdoor room, providing plenty of shade and a place to mount speakers, lighting, fans, and foliage. Retractable awnings are another great option that tuck neatly out of sight when they’re not needed.

Thoughtful Details

Small touches make your deck distinctly yours and set a wonderful mood for your family and friends. Overhead and under-stairs lighting, planters, umbrellas, built-in benches, pillows, a water feature, and an overhead fan are all nice details that make a deck a desirable destination.

Railings

Whether you choose innovative manufactured deck railings or have them custom made, railings have a tremendous impact on the look of your deck. Besides adding safety, they bring an aesthetic that can beautifully complement your home’s architectural style. They come in a variety of materials including metal, cable, composite, vinyl, glass, and wood.
