Decks are the perfect addition to any property in Chicago. They are not only functional but also add to the overall appeal of the property. If you are a homeowner in the Chicagoland area, you’ll find a deck is an excellent way to enjoy your property. If you live in the city, a rooftop deck is an excellent addition that allows you to spend more time outside taking in the sun and a cool breeze.
Below is more information about the deck-building process in Chicago, the costs, types of decks, and more. If you have any additional questions, reach out to LimakWay. We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about your new deck.

Why a New Deck?

There are a lot of major advantages to having a deck built. For a residential property, you’ll love the way it looks and the comfort it provides. Many residential deck owners decorate their decks and add furniture, grills, speakers, fire pits, and more.
Decks are great both for entertaining guests and relaxing on your own. Imagine sitting on your deck in the shade enjoying iced tea, reading your favorite book, and taking in a nice breeze. If you love to entertain, you can add patio furniture, a grill to cook out on, a cooler, and more. Bring in the New Year, celebrate a birthday, or simply enjoy a summer day with friends on your beautiful porch!
If you own a commercial property, you’ll find a deck is a lucrative addition that pays for itself over time. Each additional chair can add thousands of dollars a year to your revenue. If you build a rooftop deck or wraparound, you’ll have plenty of space for additional chairs, tables, and even an outdoor bar. Guests also love rooftop bars. There’s nothing quite like having a drink, enjoying the night air, and taking in the sights and sounds of the city.
There are lots of advantages to a new deck. These are just a few of them!

The Deck-building Process in Chicago

The process of building a deck in Chicago is multi-step. It all starts with a call to LimakWay or filling out the form on our website for more information. From there, we’ll discuss what types of decks may be available. We’ll then send a contractor out to check out the property. If you are considering a rooftop deck, your contractor will check the flatness and stability of your rooftop to ensure you can have a rooftop deck built.
The next step after your contractor has visited the property is the design phase. Your expert contractor will draw up plans for the perfect deck. They will then run those plans by you for approval. Once approved, the deck-building process can start. In a short period of time, you’ll have an amazing, new deck built that you can lounge on, entertain guests, and more!

How Long Does the Process Take?

The length of the deck-building process depends on a few factors. One factor is how large the deck is. Another is the complexity. For instance, a small, detached deck will be much easier and quicker to build than a multi-tier deck.
Another factor is the design phase. We want your deck to be the one you envision for your property. Because of this, we will work with you to put together the perfect design. If there are multiple rounds, though, it will take longer.

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Deck in Chicago?

The cost of building a deck in Chicago varies greatly. The type of deck, size, materials, and more will all factor into the cost of building a deck. With that said, you should expect your new deck to cost a minimum of $10K. LimakWay can provide you with a more detailed estimate when you reach out. Call us or fill out the form on our website for a more comprehensive estimate of the cost of the deck.

The Perfect Deck

What some people don’t realize is that decks come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and types. Below are some of the most common types of decks. LimakWay will help you to choose the perfect deck for your property.

Multi-Tier Deck

Multi-tier decks are fantastic for those that live on a slope or uneven land. These decks allow property owners to enjoy more of their property without having to stand on a slope. Multi-tier decks can be built around trees and foliage, allowing for natural shade and a treehouse-like appearance.

Rooftop Deck

Rooftop decks are an excellent solution for Chicago residents. Those that live in Chicago know how important space is. This is especially so for outdoor space. Sometimes you simply want to hang out at your house, but also spend time outdoors. A rooftop deck is perfect for getting some sun and fresh air without having to leave your property.

Wraparound Deck

A wraparound deck wraps around part of a property or the entirety of the property. Many people add outdoor couches, bench swings, and more to their wraparound decks. Wraparound decks provide properties with a cozy and warm feel.

Detached Deck

Detached decks are generally the simplest to build and are a cost-efficient solution. These decks are not attached to the home itself and instead sit in the yard like an island. As these decks generally aren’t too far off the ground, they are easy to build and access. They can also be decorated in a variety of ways. A detached deck is perfect for those that would like a nice getaway without leaving their property.
