Just like a siding replacement project, having a deck built is a great way to improve your home’s curb appeal and resale value. After all, you’re creating more space for you and your family to enjoy outdoor activities. This is why you should carefully pick the materials and the way you want to build your decking. While normal decks are raised off the ground, picking how high they are elevated depends on a few factors.
In this post, Villwell Builders, LLC, shares whether you should build a raised or grade-level deck.
Building Raised Decks
These raised decks are also known as custom decks. Building a raised deck depends on the architecture of your home. This deck could have stair access on the outside with the stair height copying the height of the indoor stairs. Keep in mind that picking the right deck will elevate your home’s value. According to local deck and additions experts, it’s an excellent way to finish the look of your backyard, coupled with landscaping and greeneries.
It’s also worth noting that the durability and lifespan of your decking will depend on the capability of your contractor and the materials that you install. Make sure that you work with a skilled decking contractor and install top-grade materials so that you can get the most out of your investment.
Building Grade-Level Decks
It’s easier to build grade-level decks since it’s a cheaper option compared to raised decks. You don’t need piers or railings to build this decking system. You can further enhance your deck’s appearance by adding accents or additional outdoor furniture. However, they are more prone to moisture damage. As such, you would want to install water-resistant materials, or add waterproofing seals to protect your decking from water damage, especially near the joists.
