Bellevue balcony deck with cable railing overlooking Seattle

We recently completed a balcony deck with cable railing in Bellevue. We were excited about the project as it presented an opportunity to create a deck with exceptional views overlooking Seattle.

So, we jumped in and got started!

As you can see in the Bellevue drone video, the raised deck balcony mounted in the backyard of the house elevates the homeowner’s outdoor living space with a view of the city. To make sure the view was not obstructed, we installed custom cable railing. The deck railing was manufactured in Bellevue by Maisy Rail, while the composite decking boards were manufactured by Trex.

It’s all about the foundation

Scenery is a strong selling point for many homes. Through our custom deck engineering, we design decks that enhance views, not obstruct them.

Often foundations can be tricky as if not done right they can create an eye-sore. We wanted to make sure that the foundation did not detract from the beauty of the home. So, we built the deck with larger than standard posts to minimize the number of posts needed. This made sure that the foundation didn’t obstruct the view from the lower levels of the house.

Perfect for the Puget Sound environment

Bellevue and the greater Seattle area is renowned for being a rainy environment. We had to make sure that our decking could withstand this weather for many years to come. So, we used decking boards that are water sealed and come with long warranties, making the deck perfect for whatever the Bellevue weather can throw at it.

Railing top rails that match the decking

We believe in consistency, both in the quality that each of our decks exudes but also in the design. The wide top rail, which is a perfect place to set drinks and small plates, is made from the same material as the decking boards.

With the same decking board used on the platform, the top rail is fitted to the top of the cable railing. These top rails made from decking boards are softer than the raw steel railing and wider than the steel.

The skyline is an asset

When we design and build decks for homes across Washington and Northern Idaho, we understand that they can add significant value to a property. A large part of this value comes with the views that they offer of the skyline.

When considering a deck for your home, it’s important that you see it as an investment. When you do sell your home down the line, you’ll be creating an appealing addition to your home that will attract many more interested buyers.

In fact, Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost Vs. Value Report found in 2007 that adding a wooden deck is the most cost-effective home improvement project for a mid-range home.

Here you can see how this deck significantly improved the view over the Seattle area. It provides a great place to host friends and family, or a place to sit back on your own and enjoy the excellent view. Wouldn’t you want this view from your home?

According to the 2018 Remodeling Impact Report from the National Association of Realtors patios can recover 102% of their building costs on average.  The 2016 version of this report found that the recoup rate was as high as 106%. Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost Vs. Value Report found in 2007 that adding a wooden deck is the most cost-effective home improvement project for a mid-range home.
