Anything other than the actual deck and handrail can be considered an accessory. We even consider stairs an accessory because they can vary in number, width, size and shape. Furthermore, itemizing the stairs in this way keeps the pricing fair as opposed to assigning them a square-foot price.
Custom Deckworks offers many built-in additions to our decks that can't be found anywhere else. Check out the examples below in our accessories list or you can click to see them here.
Bench Set: Two benches with
angled backs set on a 90 degree corner of a deck separated by a table
in the corner. Our most popular accessory.
Wrapped Bench: A bench with
a back that follows the deck angles. These definitely take a very
skilled carpenter to create. We haven't even seen attempted
copies of these in Arkansas.
Tables: Corner tables, grill
tables. These tables attach to the handrail and seem to "hover"
without legs. Tough enough to sit on.
Planter Boxes: These can be
any size or shape. They can be sunken into the deck or steps or be
built to be mobile. Planters usually work best on a deck that's
low to the ground due to drainage. We install thick plastic sheeting
on the inside to keep moisture away from the wood and to keep dirt
from washing out onto the deck.
Handrail Planters: Simple,
inexpensive and stylish boxes built to mount to the outside of the
handrail. Used for small flowers and can be moved to most any handrail
location without unsightly brackets over the top-cap of the rail.
Garden Benches: Benches without
backs typically built where the deck is less than 30 inches off the
ground. These can follow any angles and turns the deck may have.
Trap doors: A section of the
deck floor that removes to access any utilities or controls that may
be under the floor level. We build these to be as "unobvious"
as possible and offer several different ways to remove them by recessing
the handle or grab point.
Lattice Panels: The operative
word being "panel". Lattice installed any other way will
not last long.
Skirting: Very solid vertical
underpinning. The way we install skirting really makes a quality,
finished look to a deck. We always include an access point with hinges
and double latches to help prevent warping.
Also: Trellis’, Arbors,
Roofs (any style), hammock supports, porch swing supports, Hot-tub
support (on deck or sunken) and much more.
Custom Deckworks will also build any other built-in accessory you may have in mind as long as it can be done with our same quality and integrity. We also offer the installation of outdoor, low-voltage lighting on our decks. We can help you decide how much lighting you need. There are so many different types of lights on the market today that we suggest you purchase what you want and we can install it.
Custom Deckworks is currently working on developing some other accessories, so be sure to check back here often for availability.
