A trend that is more popular than ever right now in home development is outdoor living. Homeowners are choosing to expand their living spaces to include the outdoors, building unique spaces that include everything from kitchens and dining spaces to quiet nooks to read. Expand your own living area with an outdoor space by building a new deck with the help of J&A Services, a construction company in Ellicott City.
Types of Decking Materials
Wood and Trex decks are some of the most sought after decking materials, each with their own set of pros and cons. Most people choose wood because of its naturally attractive appearance. It doesn’t need to be painted or decorated because it’s already vibrant with natural beauty. It’s also extremely strong and durable. Trex decks are environmentally friendly and made with 95% recyclable material. All you need to clean it with is soap and water, and then you don’t have to worry about it warping, rotting, or staining.
Ideas for Your New Deck
- Platform decks are simple. They’re a few inches off the ground and work best with level backyards designed as an attached or detached structure. Add built-in planters and seating to give it substance.
- Raised decks are best for those who live in elevated homes or have backyards with a steep incline. You can conceal structural members with shrubs or skirting.
- Multilevel decks offer access to upper-level areas of your home. They are a series of decks connected by walkways or stairways. Use the level closest to your home for entertaining friends and family and another level to relax in the shade.
- Freestanding decks are separate from the house and built with the same techniques and methods as attached decks. They’re usually built distanced from the home where the best views are offered.
