Custom Deck Design and Construction

Our Deck Contractors Can Design Your Dream Backyard

There is nothing more satisfying than helping homeowners design their "Dream Backyard." This allows them to expand their living and entertaining space beyond their home. The deck should match the style and structure of your home as well as the personal preferences, needs, and lifestyle of the owner. It should be easy to maintain and can be used all year. It should also be constructed to the highest standards so that it can last for many years without any worries.

Starting a Deck Build

It can seem overwhelming to start a deck building project. But we are here to help. Our deck designers will meet with you to discuss your requirements. We will discuss your expectations, budget concerns and past projects/ideas. It doesn't matter what it is to you.

Below are some resources to help you make an informed decision about decks and other remodeling projects in Crestview, Niceville, Freeport, Ponce De Leon, Westville, Bonifay, Vernon and nearby areas. You can also reach us by phone at. 850-290-0603

Custom Deck Features

Custom Deck

You can have many features in your outdoor living space. These are just a few of the many features you can include in your outdoor living space. You can get even more inspiration in our project gallery.

Deck Accessories

You can choose from a wide range of accessories for your deck to enhance outdoor living spaces.

  • You can enjoy the outdoors by adding windows to a covered deck or creating screened walls that keep pests out.
  • For those cold evenings and days, add a gas fireplace or "real wood" to keep warm.
  • To enjoy the best of both, extend your "outdoor space" with an open patio or hardscape patio.
  • Many of our clients love LED lighting, ceiling fans, and TVs.

Built-in Benches & Bars

Built-in benches are great for relaxing with friends or family. Built-in benches are great for low decks, as they preserve the view and create a new space. A bar-height counter built into a railing can be a great place for your drink, and it will reduce the need to have additional tables.

Covered Decks

You can create privacy and use the area more often by adding a pergola to your roof or simply putting it up.

Built-in Spa or Pool

You can add a hot tub, a swim spa or a full-sized swimming pool to your outdoor living area. You should also include a bar/kitchen so that snacks and drinks are always at your fingertips.

Multi-tiered Decks Descending to a Patio

We can create a deck that goes down to your backyard if your home slopes in the back. You can create a patio with many landscaping and hardscaping options. It is often more efficient to have several small spaces that are connected creatively than one large space when dealing with a difficult property.

Deck Material Option

 The following materials are used in most decks in Berks County, Eastern Pennsylvania.

  • Decks made of pressure-treated wood
  • Redwood and cedar
  • Hardwood (such IPE, Massaranduba and Mahogany).
  • Vinyl/PVC decks and composite decks

This chart will give you a quick overview of the different types of decks and allow you to compare them.

  Pressure Treated Redwood and Cedar Hardwood Composites and PVC
Cost Lowest initial cost Higher initial cost Higher initial cost Higher initial cost
Maintenance Highest maintenance of all decking materials, will likely require replacement boards High maintenance; requires regular sealing for best performance Moderate maintenance; requires some staining/sealing to retain finish Lowest maintenance; long lasting color and texture, especially PVC and capped composites
Performance Splinters, cracks, splits, warps, stains, and scratches easily Subject to some cracking and splintering, resists rotting and insects, does stain and scratch easily Few splinters, highly resistant to deterioration, does not scratch or stain easily Overcomes performance issues of wood; composites stain, scratch, and fade, but PVC and capped composites are more resilient
Longevity 10-15 years when properly maintained 15-20 years when properly maintained 40+ years when properly maintained Reputable manufacturers offer warranties typically for 25 years but these decks will last much longer when properly maintained

NOTE: All decks, regardless of materials and construction, should be inspected annually for safety and cleaned with soap and water each year to maintain the best appearance. Breyer Construction also provides preventative deck maintenance and annual inspections.
