How does a Cape Cod deck differ from decks at homes off Cape? If you have to ask the question, then we have a question for you: how are you enjoying your first visit to the Cape?
A Cape Cod deck is one of the signature pieces of any home on the Cape. It’s where family and friends gather for cookouts and parties. Or just a quiet place to unwind after a day at the beach or work.
Much in the same way wood shingles feel the brunt of the sun, snow, ice, rain and wind that accompany the climate in the Northeast, the Cape Cod deck is also subject to the elements. Especially if you’re not clearing your deck after a snow storm. As years go by, the deck that was once your pride and joy and the focal point of your entertainment area will eventually show signs of age in the form of rotting wood, broken boards, perhaps even mold and mildew.
Choosing the right deck materials
Moniz Home Improvement and our team of Cape Cod deck experts can help revive your entertainment area with a customized deck tailored to your specific wants and needs.
Of course, a Cape Cod deck still must stand up to the elements. That’s why we recommend using pressure-treated Mahogany boards to withstand the sometimes harsh Northeastern climate– particularly for larger decks where it might be difficult to clear all the snow in winter time. If you have a deck around a swimming pool area, we use Azek® composite decking for further stability and longevity.
Repairing or creating your deck anew follows a similar process as other Moniz Home Improvement services. It’s very much a collaboration. We come out to your home to make an initial assessment of your current deck. From there, we sit down to hear your thoughts on what you envision for your Cape Cod deck.
Cape Cod Deck Replacement Experts
Having an older deck that needs a total replacement is an opportunity to create the deck you want. You can take the elements you like about the current one and add some new wrinkles. Maybe you want a better location to put a grill and picnic table. Perhaps you want additional benches or seating areas. What about screening in a section of the deck so you can enjoy the Cape Cod nights without the intrusion of mosquitoes and other bugs?
After the initial assessment and our brainstorming session, Moniz Home Improvement will come up with plans that work for you and your budget. We will create a design so you can see what your new deck will look like. Once you sign off, we will work with you to find the materials that best meet the needs of the project. We work with a number of suppliers who offer high quality materials at competitive prices.
