You can’t go wrong with adding a deck to increase your living space. However, adding one is no simple feat since you’ll need thorough planning to pull it off correctly. Keep in mind that when you’re designing your deck, you’ll need to consider a few key factors. This also includes whether or not your deck should be level with your home.
- Raised decks, such as custom decks, are heavily influenced by your home’s design. For instance, elevated ranch-style ramblers with split-level flooring can be found with raised decks on the second floor. Outdoor stair access to the upper floor deck can match the height of the indoor stairwell. The height should match the backdoor for easier access. Outdoor stairs can also be built to create another entry point to the deck from your backyard.
- Building a deck “at grade” means that you’re building it on the same level as the ground. It goes without saying that a decking system like this is easier to build. However, they are more prone to moisture damage. Make sure that you use water-resistant materials, or utilize waterproofing seals so that you won’t have water-related issues.
Regardless of the choice you’ll make, it’s important to work with credible and courteous contractors to help you all throughout the decking process. They can help you to pick decking choices to get the best one that will increase your home’s curb appeal.
