Whether you're a seasoned homeowner or a first-time deck enthusiast, we've compiled a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions to address your concerns.
How Long Does It Take to Build a Deck?
At Montgomery Decks, we strive to complete projects efficiently without compromising quality. While every project is unique, our aim is to minimize build time. If any delay is anticipated, we'll notify you in advance and discuss preferred options. On average, deck construction takes 1-2 weeks.
Do I Need a Permit to Build a New Deck?
Yes, a building permit is required for all new decks. Don't worry—we handle the permit process on your behalf. It typically takes 2-6 weeks to obtain all necessary permits, ensuring compliance with local regulations.
What Is the Average Cost of a New Deck?
The cost of a new deck varies depending on factors like materials, size, and complexity. On average, a new deck ranges from $22,000 to $34,000. However, we've completed decks for as low as $9,000 and larger projects up to $200,000.
Is It Cheaper to Repair a Deck or Get a New One?
During our inspection, we'll assess whether your deck can be repaired or requires replacement. While repairs may involve an investment of time and money, it's a cost-effective solution if the deck is structurally sound and the wood is healthy.
Do You Offer Financing Options?
Yes, we provide financing options through our partnership with HFS. We also encourage exploring financing alternatives, such as home equity loans or lines of credit from local credit unions or financial institutions.
Is Composite Decking Better Than Wood?
Composite decking offers advantages over wood. While pressure-treated lumber may be cheaper initially, the long-term maintenance costs are higher. Composite decks require minimal maintenance and resist mold, decay, and insects.
Will a Composite Deck Look Like Plastic?
Modern composite decking mimics the beauty of natural wood, featuring subtle streaking and varied wood grain patterns. Today's composites closely resemble real wood, surpassing the plastic appearance of earlier generations.
What Is the Lifetime Value of Trex?
Trex decks offer superior lifetime value. Unlike pressure-treated wood, Trex requires no sanding, staining, or painting. Over time, the savings in reduced maintenance costs, along with increased enjoyment, make Trex a better value.
How Long Does a Composite Deck Last?
A well-maintained composite deck typically lasts beyond its 25-year warranty. Made of plastic and wood particles, it offers durability and longevity, providing years of enjoyment with minimal upkeep.
Do You Provide a Warranty for Your Work?
Yes, we offer a 5-year craftsmanship warranty. Additionally, the products we use come with manufacturer warranties ranging from 25 to 50 years. For general wear or non-warranty damage, we also provide repair services.
