Platform Decks


Platform decks are the simplest deck style and have the benefit of being the design constructed lowest to the ground. Platform decks are traditionally built on level lots and attached to single-level dwellings. One benefit to a platform deck is that railings are often not necessary, leaving you with many options for landscape and hardscape construction around your outdoor area. United Fence and Deck offers perfect
fence options to complement this deck style, as well as the services  to maintain its integrity and beauty, such as protective sealing and waterproofing.

Raised Decks

Custom Deck on Back of Home in Eastern Shore of MarylandMost houses with first floors constructed above the ground require a raised deck construction. For both safety and design, this alternative requires railings and stairs for proper access. When completed, a raised deck includes exposed foundation posts, that can be concealed with foundation plantings or skirting, which United Fence and Deck can also help design and build.

Multi-Level Decks

Multi-level decks are a creative and beautiful design in highlighting your landscape. This alternative is constructed of a series of separate decks connected by stairways or walkways. These decks are usually built for sloped lots, since the construction naturally follows along the contours of your property. Joining each section with a short run of stairs prevents the lowest deck from interfering with the views from the higher decks, which is not only function, but visually enlarges the scope of your landscape’s size.

Freestanding Decks

If you and your family love being outside or anticipate a good amount of outdoor entertaining, a freestanding deck can be a creative option for your yard. This deck construction is unique in that it is not attached to the house itself, but are built with the same basic methods and techniques as attached decks, except footings, posts, and beams replace the ledger. Because freestanding decks are not attached to the house, but are designed more like an “island” within your larger landscape, you can get very creative with its placement and truly highlight specific areas of your yard.
