Decks are becoming a popular addition to every home and it is rare to pass a house that does not have an attached deck. When it comes to decks, there are unlimited possibilities of styles and designs to choose from including pool and hot tub decks, stone decks, patio decks, one-story decks and two-story decks as well as many others. The shape of your deck is completely up to you and there are a number of shapes to choose from such as horizontal patterns, diagonal patterns, v-shape patterns and diamond patterns just to name a few. In addition to the styles and designs, decks come with many accessorizing options such as added overheads, benches, awnings and lighting. As for materials to choose from when building a deck, wood is probably the most popular with vinyl coming in a close second. Regardless of the design and shape you choose, a deck is a great addition to any home.
