If you are considering how to improve your backyard, a deck is one popular way to add usability and beauty to your landscape. A deck in-and-of-itself is a desirable asset in any property, as it provides a place for homeowners to enjoy the outdoors without leaving home. The question comes down to what material to use. If you live in Dorchester County, MD, or anywhere else on the Eastern Shore, United Fence & Decks offers a wide array of fabulous wood decks for your backyard.
The three main types of materials for decks has in recent years included composite, vinyl, and wood, and wood has always been the most popular. As a natural material, it has a beauty of its own that the man-made materials will never be able to genuinely replicate. Although vinyl and composite are known for their low maintenance needs and durability, wood also proves to be a long-lasting building material. Although threatened by rot, mold, termites, weathering, and warping, wood for decking has either a special sealing that keeps it for longer or natural resins that repel insects. As a decently durable and available product, wood is perhaps the most affordable option as well. Whether you want to stain or paint it, a wood deck can meet your color needs too.
Types of Decks
After deciding that wood is the material of your choice, it’s time to figure out what kind of design would best fit your home. Decks come in various heights, depending on the level of your back door. Platform decks have the lowest height, made generally for single-level homes and often not requiring any railing. Raised, multi-level, and free-standing decks are other options. If your deck cascades down into the backyard, it can have a landing or even a lower-level deck. Meanwhile, free-standing decks are optimal for those who love to be in out in the yard. However, height is only one consideration for wood decks. Decks have a wide array of floor patterns and deck railing designs from which to choose.
