There is no better way to enhance the curb appeal of your home, than creating a deck. A deck can be the perfect addition to your home serving as a quiet space for you to relax or spend quality time with your loved ones. Building a deck is an exciting proposition but by no means a simple one. With numerous styles, designs, and materials to choose from, finalizing the design of your deck can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process. The look and feel of your deck will change drastically depending on the material you choose – pressure treated wood, cedar, composite, hardwood, vinyl, etc.
The shape of your deck impacts how easily people can move around and which areas will be used the most frequently. Following is a list of shapes or layouts you can choose from.
Rectangular: Rectangular is the most common type of deck system. There are several applications for rectangular designs including Denver concrete patios, sundecks, and tiered systems. Rectangular decks are also the easiest to construct.
Octagonal: Octagonal Decks are great for barbecue areas, beach decks, as well as a hot tub deck. These decks are a great addition to any outdoor space.
Rooftop Decks: Rooftop decks are built of vinyl to prevent any leaks into your home during the rains.
Side-pool decks: If you have a swimming pool, a side pool deck can be an easy to build extension, adding to the beauty and enjoyment of your pool.
