Virtual Is The New Reality

by


For many of us, technology can be just as frustrating as it is helpful. Sure, it can guide us to finding things faster, can connect us with people and businesses instantaneously, or can locate a contractor for us lickety-split (don’t forget to visit our social media pages, coincidentally!), but it can also be annoying having to keep up with the constantly evolving world of tech.

Just when you think you’ve gotten comfortable with your new smart phone or tablet, a new one comes out, bringing with it new features, new software…and new ways to confuse the hell out of you. Who can keep up with all the lingo (What’s a USB? What does VR mean? Who are Siri, Watson and Cortana??), or carry on anything close to an intelligent conversation with those in the tech world? We’re contractors, men and women of the Earth, for God’s sake! We get our hands dirty and use our creativity, sweat and muscle to build things…why do we have to know this stuff? Fortunately, a solution has come along that both builders and buyers can get excited over. It’s a little thing called virtual reality…and it’s available, EXCLUSIVELY at The Deck Store.

Technology Is Taking Over

Up to this point, the landscape of virtual reality has been an overwhelmingly unexplored wilderness. A neat parlor trick for some, and more of a novelty for others, the technology has often been more of a cool toy to this point. Sure, it was fun to use a 360-degree camera and pan around large areas through a fisheye view, but were there any practical applications to these impressive optics? Not many to this point, but like the constant innovators we are, The Deck Store brain trust has developed a way to harness this technology and leverage it to amazing results. Imagine being able to completely view, walk through, and literally stand on your new decking project…before it’s even built! With our EXCLUSIVE virtual reality designs and tours, you can now do just that.

The process starts with a custom decking design, from a member of our award-winning deck design team. The dimensions are drawn, the blueprint is created, and then our very own “Deck DaVinci” gets to work. Utilizing state-of-the-art software, cameras, and technology, this maestro of the tech world sets to work “building” your deck virtually….before contractors, materials and earth are ever set in motion. Everything is then processed and formatted through virtual reality specifications, and BAM! Your new virtual oasis comes to life! Set up an appointment with our design team, slap some really cool VR goggles on, and walk around your deck, without ever stepping foot out of our offices!

So if you’re ready to turn your virtual backyard dreams into reality, contact us today to get started! After all, before you can ever achieve something you have to envision it; so why not actually experience it too while you’re at it?

WHY THE DECK STORE?
The most important part of any deck project is finding the right builder to do the work. Our builders have the right set of skills, our designers share your vision, and we always can adjust project according your price range

Deck Foundation

Helical Piles - Every good thing begins with a good foundation, and your deck is no different. Strength and stability is an important thing to build upon, and that’s why we like to build our decks upon something called Helical Piles. Often known as Screw Piles, Helical Piles are quickly becoming the most efficient and cost effective way to provide your project with a safe and sturdy foundation.

Deck Framing

Metal Framing - Once you have your post properly anchored and standing strong, it’s time for phase two: framing. Available in both metal and traditional pressure treated lumber, framing is the skeleton that supports you decking for the duration of its life.

Surfacing/Decking

Low Maintenance Materials - After your foundation is set and your framing secure, it’s time for the main event of the building process: your decking of choice. This can take on many forms, from traditional pressure treated to synthetic materials (composite/pvc), but is always accompanied by one constant; experienced and skilled build teams.

Deck Accents/Details

Having a new deck is great, but what really turns you backyard space from renovation to staycation are the character pieces and accents that you choose. Things such as custom pergolas, privacy screens, shading options and custom metal artwork can go a long way in turning your outdoor space into a retreat; and we all want the kind of yard that will leave our neighbors and friends jealous and talking.
