In a typical year, about a million homeowners throughout America will build a new deck or upgrade an existing one. Beauty, added value, and comfort are just a few reasons why decks are so popular. Decks extend the living space of the home, adding a special “outdoor room” for entertainment and relaxation. Design choices range from simple, compact structures to elaborate multilevel decks with benches, planters, and railings.
