The Best Deck Renovation Trends in 2018

The Best Deck Renovation Trends in 2018Summer’s arrival means getting outside to get the grill going, gather with friends, and have a great time.  Which, more often than not, happens on a deck.  Decks are perfect for entertaining because they serve as an extension of indoor space and create a well-defined area for guests to mingle.  Although many homes these days come with decks, they are often outdated or in disrepair.  If you are a homeowner looking to upgrade or repair your deck this summer, check out these three trends before jumping into the job. Here are the Best Deck Renovation Trends in 2018

Wide Railings

The wide railing trend for decks is both fun and functional.  A few years ago, someone came up with the ingenious idea to make deck railings wide enough, and with a small indent, for the purpose of holding a drink cup or bottle.  People were astonished by the innovation, and the trend caught on.  If you are installing new railings or a new deck this year, you don’t want to be caught without wide railings, perfect for entertaining.


In the past, most decks built off the back of homes were just one level.  An extension of the kitchen or living area, they served the purpose of expanding the living space.  However, as decks have evolved, so have their designs.  Today, homeowners are loving that they can create multi-functional outdoor entertainment spaces by building a deck with multiple levels.  While the cooking might take place up top, a party is sure to be happening down below!

Expanded Staircases

When it comes to outdoor entertainment, the more space the better; and staircases are no exception to this rule.  People have grown tired of doing the staircase dance, moving to the side for their passing friends and plates of hot foods. Therefore, decks are now being built with wider staircases to alleviate this issue.

As your big deck project begins this summer, be sure to call your local professional, Action Home Repairs, to make sure you are incorporating all of the best 2018 deck renovation trends!

Great company to work with. Very professional, friendly and very attentive to details. You can definitely tell that the employees took pride in their work and the owner was very good at staying on top of all of the tasks at hand. Would highly recommend this company to anyone who's looking to have some home remodeling. Their prices were competitive but the overall product was much better than what other companies have delivered.

We had some flood damage in our basement and needed baseboards replaced. We worked with Jim who was super friendly and knowledgeable. He did the repairs quickly and for a very fair price. After the repairs he walked me through what he had done and explained everything. I will definitely use them in the future. it was a great experience from start to finish.
