When comparing bids, something you might not think to take into consideration is the hours that your deck contractor will be working. After all, it’s no skin off your back when they do their job, right?
But it can have an impact on your day-to-day living, and it can say a lot about how the contractor views you and your project. If your contractor wants to work weekends and evenings, then you may find yourself facing these issues.

Zuri decking is an engineered decking material designed by Royal Building Products. It's an upscale, high performance deck board that is locally produced in Virginia. It's also still relatively new to many areas of the country, meaning homeowners and commercial deck builders in Maryland and Virginia may know how much Zuri decking costs or how to install Zuri decking.
Royal Building Products considers Zuri to be their “premium” line of decking, which is a nice way of saying that it doesn’t come cheap. In fact, when compared to other kinds of synthetic decking on the market (Azek, Fiberon, TimberTech, and others), Zuri decking can be twice as much. What this means in real numbers depends on how much decking you need and what kind of design and style you’re going for.

Start by thinking about what you want to do on the deck:
How many people do you want to fit comfortably on the deck?
Will you use it for big parties on holidays like the 4th of July and Thanksgiving?
Do you want a sitting area?
Do you want to fit a table and chairs? What about a big grill?
