What to know about a Hot Tub Deck
Relax and unwind by adding a hot tub deck to your outdoor space. At Best Rate Repair, we specialize in designing, creating, maintaining, and repairing hot tub decks for a range of properties and clients. We will work with you to create the perfect oasis; from crafting a recessed hot tub deck to building out an attached entertainment space, there are endless options. Best Rate Repair also offers hot tub deck inspections, repairs, and regular maintenance.
What to Consider When Designing Your Hot Tub Deck
At Best Rate Repair, we design and install a hot tub deck that is perfectly suited to the space. The first factors to consider are the location of the tub, the wiring, and the square footage available around the tub.
Once you’ve established how much space is available, our team can recommend styles, features, and material options that will work well for your vision and budget.
Social Space or Silent Sanctuary?
Some of our clients are looking to build the perfect getaway. A small hot tub deck with a chaise lounge, enclosed walls, and lots of privacy may be the perfect solution. Others see their hot tub deck as an entertainment space, complete with couches, a bar, and an outdoor heater.
Hot Tub Deck Materials
Best Rate Repair offers both traditional wood options and engineered materials. Some clients may opt for Redwood or Douglas Fir to match an existing deck or nearby outdoor features. In recent years, however, composite materials have come a long way in their look and style options. Composite material requires less maintenance, better fire ratings, and is not vulnerable to termite damage or wood rot. Engineered wood comes in all shapes, colors, and sizes and is easy to cut into intricate designs. We carry the full line of Trex and Fiberon materials and are happy to help our clients determine the best option for their project. Book your free estimate to learn more.
Hot Tub Deck Repair
If your hot tub deck is damaged by termites, wood rot, weather, or old age, it’s crucial to book repair services before suffering further structural damages. Weakened planks and posts could cause serious issues for you and your guests as they step in and out of the tub. At Best Rate Repair, we specialize in all types of deck repair and will provide a full, detailed estimate before any work begins. We always walk our clients through multiple options and find the best solution for their timeline and budget.
Refinishing Your Hot Tub Deck
If your current deck is cracked, faded, or warped, it may be time to refinish. Refinishing your hot tub deck can help prevent structural issues and damages in the long run. We recommend refinishing the wood every few years depending upon the age, sun exposure, and quality of the material.
Why Install a Hot Tub Deck?
Installing a hot tub deck is an easy and effective way to elevate the look and accessibility of your home spa. There are several reasons why including a hot tub deck in your outdoor plans is a great idea:
Create Your Relaxing Oasis
An outdoor hot tub deck is the perfect place to end your day. The deck adds a clean, dry place to stash your towel, robe, and a beverage as you slip into the spa and melt your stress away. Add outdoor lighting, a chaise lounge, and a fire pit and you’ll never want to leave.
Provide a Space to Entertain
A hot tub deck is the perfect outdoor entertaining solution for both small and large properties. Adding a deck around the spa allows you to include outdoor furniture, lighting, greenery, and other features that complete the scene. This is an excellent alternative to installing a swimming pool and can be used for entertainment year-round.
Increase Your Return on Investment
Adding a home spa to your property is a sure way to increase its rental and resale value. Building a deck can elevate the look and feel of your tub, boosting the value of your property whether you’re renting or looking to sell.
Hot Tub Deck Designs
Recessed: In this design, the floors of the deck wrap around the top edges of the tub, making it easy for guests to transition from the deck into the tub. This design is great for social spaces, allowing guests in the hot tub to easily speak with people sitting nearby. It is a sleek and seamless option that also provides neat storage for electrical and water lines.
Raised Platform: The raised platform deck is a great way to make getting in and out of the tub easily. This is also a clever solution for smaller spaces, or areas where you’d like the option of adding walls or foliage for privacy. This design may include stairs and railings to keep your guests safe.
Hot Tub Steps and Railings: Adding railings, walls, and stairs can increase the safety and comfort of your hot tub deck. We can provide several materials and designs to choose from, ensuring that the final outcome looks welcoming, sleek, and is easy to care for.
