Congratulations on building a deck. Decks add value and practical use to any home. To the right are a number of different deck designs and materials that you can choose from.
Any deck can have various levels, types of railings, stairs, etc. We encourage you to communicate to us exactly what you want so we can build you the perfect custom deck design.
Before Designing Your Deck We Encourage You To Ask The Following Questions
1: What Is My Budget For My Deck Project?
The reason budget is important is that decks can vary in price based on material and size. If you have a firm budget it is easier to work backwards from that budget amount so you can have the deck of your dreams. Ways to save money on a deck project are to use with pressure treated spruce (instead of cedar or a composite material), eliminate railings and stairs if possible, and keep the dimensions only to what you require.
2:What Type Of Material Do I Want To Work With?
Pressure treated spruce, cedar and composite material are your most popular options for decking. Each comes with pros and cons and varies in price. See below for some pictures of pressure treated, cedar and composite decks.
3: What Design Do I Want For My Deck?
We will work with you to design the best deck for your space, your budget and your expected use. Most decks can be designed in a few minutes while discussing with your family, but for larger projects we are more than happy to assist. Railings, stairs, decking material and dimensions are the cornerstone of great deck design.
Deck Construction Examples
- Pressure Treated Decks
The following is an average pressure treated deck. These decks can be done in any dimension, walk out or no walk out and can be combined with various railing options.
- Cedar Decks
Below is a cedar deck. Cedar is a higher quality wood than spruce and has an orange color to it, especially when stained as in this picture. A cedar deck is more expensive than a pressure treated deck and can also be combined with various railing options.
- Composite Decks
Some people like to go with a composite material when building a deck. This deck is built using a trex composite material with aluminum railings. Composite materials can come in various colors and styles and are usually paired with aluminum or glass railings. A trex deck will be more expensive than a wooden deck due to the cost of materials and as a result is very durable and has a unique style.
How High Do I Want My Fence?
Six feet high fences are more familiar in most new neighborhoods and allow for adequate privacy while stopping cost-effective. Seldom a four or five-foot fence is installed if your residence backs onto a greenspace or you favor a moderately shorter fence. Almost any fence design can add structure to the top to increase privacy and fence height.
Do I Want 4×4, 4×6 Or 6×6 Inch Posts?
Most basic fences have 4×4 inch posts. This is the most cost-effective choice and typically gives the fence enough support for most uses. The benefit of a 4×6 or 6×6 inch post is added strength due to youngsters playing football in your yard or big dogs uniformly jumping up against a fence. Bigger jobs will also tend to last a few years longer and prevent sag a little better over the years. That being said we recommend most people to stick with 4×4 to minimize cost.
What Style Offense Do I Want?
We encourage people to choose one of the following fence styles below. Totem Building Supplies offer these styles and go under various names by many building supplies. Calgary Fences offers these styles because they are trendy and are great fence designs. If you want another style, we encourage you to take a picture of the fence you like if it is in your neighborhood or download an image off the internet. As we said before, there is no style offense we cannot replicate with a picture.
Whether it is the trees, bushes, or flower beds, landscaping comes down to professionalism and passion. The right landscaping service can deliver high-quality results and ensure the final solution is up to par with modern standards.
Property owners want to make sure their curb appeal is in line with the rest of the neighborhood, but it has to begin with a vision and a quality company such as this one. The quality is going to be seen as soon as the landscaping starts with each specialist taking the time to draw out a plan of action. This is how a world-class result is put together!
The beauty of getting the best possible landscaping Miami has to offer often revolves around the idea of modern techniques, quality equipment, and the ability to do an excellent job in this particular environment. Miami is a robust setting with a unique situation, which has to be kept in mind when a plan is designed for the first time.
The right professionals can come in and make sure all of these details are accounted for before the landscaping is done. Anyone needing a high-quality solution needs the best team around for their needs.…

When it comes to fences there are three important questions to ask yourself:
How high do I want my fence?
6 feet high fences are more popular in most new communities and allow for adequate privacy while remaining cost effective. Sometimes a four or five foot fence is installed if your home backs onto a greenspace or you prefer a slightly shorter fence. Almost any fence design can add lattice to the top to increase privacy and fence height.
Do I want 4×4, 4×6 or 6×6 inch posts?
Most basic fences have 4×4 inch posts. This is the most cost effective option and typically gives the fence enough support for most uses. The benefit of a 4×6 or 6×6 inch post is added strength due to teenagers playing football in your yard or big dogs constantly jumping up against a fence. Bigger posts will also tend to last a few years longer and prevent sag a little better over the years. That being said we recommend most people to stick with 4×4 to minimize cost.
What style of fence do I want?
We encourage people to choose one of the following fence styles below. These styles are offered by Totem Building Supplies and go under various names by many building supplies.
