Decks add additional living space and beautiful aesthetic touch to the landscape. Whether you opt for a multi-level platform made from treated wood or a basic concrete slab for ground-level decks, the possibilities are endless. Every deck requires sturdy footings and rails, but beyond that, decks can take on various shapes and sizes and be outfitted with benches, stairs, lighting fixtures, and more. Decks also provide opportunities for distinctive creative touches. From baskets of plants to vibrant outdoor rugs and designer furniture pieces, decks can be elevated from a simple outdoor walkway to cozy outdoor sanctuaries for entertaining family and friends.
