Ask a Deck Builder: Does My Deck Have to Match My Home?

As Northern Virginia deck builders, we know that color is often one of the most difficult decisions to make when deciding on a deck design. When you live in a HOA community, your choices are limited and can alter your overall design. For those who do not live in a HOA neighborhood, the color and design options are limitless. This is a blessing for creative personalities and a curse for the indecisive.
