At first thought, a deck may seem like a simple concept to put together. It’s just some wood planks forming a rectangular extension of the house, right? Wrong! You have the ability to customize your deck design with countless options. There are different colours, shapes, and sizes to choose from to build the deck of your dreams.
Great decks are like great homes. They come in all manners of size, shape, and color, often using a wide range of creative building materials like metal, engineered wood, or even concrete, plus a number of distinct finishes to make them truly unique, but are often the “odd man” out after a few years of heavy use.
If your deck has suffered a similar fate, let the design professionals at ME Contracting help you choose from innovative design ideas to bring your deck back to life – and make it a favored outdoor destination for years to come. M.E Contracting has the team that can help you add a deck as a new feature to your house or bring your existing deck back to life after years of wear and tear.

Coming up with the perfect deck design is not only the first step in the planning process but the most important one as well. It needs to be functional, aesthetically pleasing, and something that you will be happy with for an extended period of time.
M.E Contracting knows that deck design revolves around the most important question—how will you be using your deck?
- Are you going to be entertaining large groups or just grilling with your family and close friends?
- Are you going to be starting a family at some point or do you already have children past their adolescence?
- Are you just looking for a basic design or do you want to build in custom elements such as a fire pit or garden?
Our design professionals will take your customization needs and apply it to their knowledge of the latest trends that will best suit your lifestyle and desires. Once you have settled on the types of activities your deck will be used for, there are several other details to be considered.
Getting the Best Site and Views
What could be better than kicking back on your brand new deck, enjoying a beautiful view in front of you? Even if you don’t have rolling hills as your view, that doesn’t mean you should settle for sticking the deck onto the house at the same level. Our design professionals will help you choose the best elevation for your deck, taking into account the ideal view and potential privacy that could be gained. They will recommend the appropriate materials for your desired deck height for maximum safety and sturdiness. ME Contracting will help you create a design that will accentuate the best parts of your view and hide the less picturesque parts.
Staying Within Your Budget
While our design professionals create your deck plan, they will take your budget needs into account. They are skilled at estimating how much your deck will cost based on the square footage and the materials that will be used, as well as any add-ons or special customizations. You will be provided with all of our options, giving you the ability to create a stylish deck while still staying within your budget.
Choosing Your Design Style
Your home has a unique style to it. Is it a beautiful colonial, or a stylish contemporary? Whatever it may be, you are going to want your deck to be designed to match the look of your home. ME Contracting will help you come up with a concept that beautifully blends into your home and becomes a part of it.
Traffic, Stairs, and Railings
When you think about how you would most often be using your deck, consider the type of traffic that will be moving across it. You will want the space to flow with ease and accommodate the people who will be using it the most. You will want your entrances and exits, which may include stairs, to be strategically placed in an easy-to-find spot. Railings will protect and guide people and should be set at the appropriate height. ME Contracting is experienced at providing appropriate and safe recommendations for installing these three key features to your deck.
