Understand what goes into building a high-end deck, from start to finish. If you’d like to upgrade or build a deck, Decks and Outdoor Projects is a must read. The centerpiece of this special issue is an all-new, expanded article that tracks the construction of a new deck, from start to finish – and all the significant details in between. This panoramic view of the project will better prepare you for planning your own deck project and avoiding costly mistakes.

Plan smart and get the permitting right. Even before you tackle the actual construction, it’s smart to check into what permits are required, whether it’s all-new construction or just a remodel. Our pros provide a helpful head’s up, demystifying the permitting process so you are aware of what is needed before starting any work – a critical step that can save you from serious problems down the road!

Before upgrading a deck, arm yourself with good advice. There’s more to redoing a deck than meets the eye and you can save yourself a lot of time and money, when you start with the right stuff. Decks and Outdoor Projects is packed with valuable information on how to:

  • Construct a rooftop deck
  • Demolish an old deck
  • Fix a deck that’s gone bad
  • Lay out new footings
  • Choose wood decking
  • Build railings on site
  • Select deck-specific tools and materials

Plus additional outdoor projects you can build yourself. Also included in this special themed issue are articles on how to build an attractive backyard barn, a cedar pergola, and rugged stone steps - any one of which is worth the price of the magazine.
