Building Decks On The Lake: What Expertise Is Required

We get it… From the first time you set foot on your lakefront property, you knew you had to do everything possible to maximize the view. If that meant replacing the old deck or building one in an area that never had one. 

Building a deck on the lakeshore can present a unique set of challenges like dealing with water levels, docks, boats, etc. Even if you consider yourself a bit of a handyman, you’ll want to hire a professional to help you create a deck that will last for years.

You”ll want to start with a good design and make sure everything is measured before you start. From there, get all of your tools ready and order the materials. You’ll only want to use wood that’s approved for use in water, galvanized nails & ceramic coated screws. Most deck replacement estimates we give end up finding severely rotted wood and rusted nails. 

Safety is a big #2, you’re going to be working with electrical equipment close to the water. This means you’ll want to keep cords away from the water and only use battery-powered or manual tools. Extra precautions can include adding double reinforcements for extra stability. 

If we’re not removing old decking, we’ll jump right into framing a deck on or near a dock (which isn’t as simple a normal deck). From there, most of the construction is business as usual. We’ll keep in mind your design ideas and wishes including proper walkouts and master bedroom views, which tend to top the want list. Most of our customers want a rustic modern feel that requires little maintenance of course. 

It goes without saying, that throughout the whole building process, you can’t be afraid to get a little wet! When your new deck is finished, you’ll have the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the water, host BBQ’s and watch the kids or pets run around. A lakehouse is simply not complete without a quality deck to create as many memories in your backyard as you will in the water. 

Our Services

Decks

It’s amazing the tranquility that your own deck can provide. Sure you can sip your morning coffee inside, but it’s just way better doing the same thing outdoors. Grab your Adirondack chair and enjoy the great outdoors with a deck built by Lakeshore Decks. 

Your new deck will be a valuable addition to your lakefront home, cabin, or marina. The difference between a safe/durable deck and an unsafe/wobbly deck comes down to careful planning and construction skills to match. Two things that we have.

Porches

Depending on which side of your home gets the sunset, porches and decks are the best places to sit and sip your morning coffee. And as the leaves start to fall and the air starts to crisp, a porch can be a great way to squeeze out a few more months of outdoor fun before the snow comes. 

Lakeshore decks can help you create a safe and enjoyable place for you and your family to kick back their feet and relax in. Give us a call today to schedule a free estimate to build your porch.

Patios

When the weather warms up and you want to move your parties outdoors, having an outdoor living space that’s functional and aesthetically pleasing is paramount. Before you have thoughts of decorating a patio with beautiful furniture, plants, and other accessories, you have to plan where and what these accessories are going to sit on. 

Shade Structures

A gazebo or pergola in the garden adds beauty and elegance to your outdoor living space and adds great value to your home. In addition, this is used as an extension to the functional area of your property and it comes in different shapes and sizes. You’re not only limited to building this on land but also on an existing deck porch or patio.

Depending on how much shade you want coming in, you can have the gazebo you can either build this on land or on existing decks, you can have the gazebo open on sides or covered in glass.

Deck Repair

Lakeshore Decks is here to provide honest value-driven solutions so you can get the most longevity out of your deck and outdoor living space. We know our way around decks unlike a lot of contractors who unfortunately get hired way too often. 

The deck repair process quite often starts with seeing how much of the deck needs to be repaired. Sometimes it’s just replacing a few boards or staining the railing. If it comes to demoing the whole deck, we’ll let you know. We’ll let you know both of your options, the benefits and let you make the decision on yourself based on your findings.

With decades of deck building experience, we have created the perfect process from the moment you pick up the phone to nailing the last nail.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The truth is, there is no “average” deck. Builds can be anywhere between $2,000 for repair jobs for existing decks to as much as $150,000 for larger projects. Commercial builds and larger homes can reach higher prices. What we can tell you are the things that will contribute to the price of your deck installation.

​Here they are:

  • The custom design you’ve requested
  • Square footage
  • Features
  • The type of material (TREX, composite, wood, etc.)

A full deck build can be anywhere from two days to two weeks once all of the necessary permits and materials are acquired. Just as with the pricing of your deck, the design, square footage, and features will contribute to how long it takes to build your custom deck.

​Lucky for you, our deck builders work extremely quickly, not because they rush quality work, but because they have done all of this before dozens of times. Whether you want to build a large backyard paradise or a small wood deck, nothing is too big or small for our teams.

Trex is the worlds most trusted decking brand and the inventor of a wood-alternative composite decking made of 95% recycled wood and plastic. Because of this unique blend, you get the appealing look of high-quality wood and the durability of fully composite decking. 

There are numerous benefits to choosing a TREX deck installation, for example:

Because it’s mostly recycled wood, it’s an eco-friendly option compared to PVC decking.
Composite materials do not attract as much heat as wood and all-plastic decking.
Composite decking does not splinter, crack, rot, or fall prey to insect damage.
Unlike plastic decking, it does not get slippery when it rains or snows.
Trex decking is low maintenance and can last up to 30 years even with Michigans various weather patterns.
