Adding a deck to your home is one of the best ways to make it more beautiful and functional. It can also be a good way to increase your property’s overall value. There are many kinds of decks available, each with its unique appeal and benefits.
Exterior Source, the trusted home improvement contractor, talks about the different deck types in detail:
The wraparound deck is similar to a traditional wrap-around porch. The difference is that parts of the deck can be larger and more room-like than a porch. Typical wrap-around decks are built slightly elevated to add living space to your home. This deck style will allow you to follow the sun no matter its position in the sky.
Island or Detached Deck
Detached decks are called island decks because they can be built at any point on your property. You can even place them quite far from your home as long as you have space in your yard. Usually, a pathway or series of steps accompanies this deck style to help guide you as you make your way to and from your home. As a home improvement and replacement windows expert, we suggest using this opportunity to decorate this pathway with lighting and turn your island deck into a centerpiece of your yard.
This deck style is similar to a front porch but it is not completely covered overhead. A deck builder will typically use the materials, design, and shape of an entryway deck to complement a home’s existing architecture. This makes the deck addition look like it was built at the same time as your home.
