Deck materials have evolved. You’re no longer limited by wood decks. PVC decks look just as beautiful and authentic in natural colors with faux wood grain. Composites blend with the environment while outliving their wooden counterparts.
Ground Level Or Stairs
Depending on your home, building a deck on the ground is a money-saving option. Stairs and protective railings add to the material costs. Whether ground-level or elevated, make sure you check for building and safety codes in your county.
Decide On Size
Want a wrap-around porch? A multi-level deck on a hillside? A simple entryway patio? Once you pick your style, take measurements to determine the length and width of your deck. Deck calculators are a handy way to estimate what you’ll need to complete your project.
