Having a deck is a real game-changer for your home.
Decks extend your living space to the outdoors, so you can sip lemonade while watching the kids ride their bikes out front, or enjoy a BBQ out in the backyard. Besides functional value, decks add a lot to your home.
Adding a deck to your home:
- Adds an aesthetic appeal to your home’s exterior
- Increases liveable space to your home
- Provides a place to host parties and family get-togethers
- Adds value to your home
There are a variety of types of decks you can build onto your home. While traditional decks are made from wood or composite materials, covered concrete porches are becoming more popular, especially with the new stamped concrete finishes.
Types of decks:
- Wraparound deck, which completely surrounds the front or back of your home
- Attached deck, the most common kind of deck typically extending from your back door
- Detached deck used for a specific purpose, such as a shady spot in the garden, etc.
At Wayne Homes, we use two materials when building decks and porches–Trex composite decking and concrete.
Our Hampton Farmhouse II model at Bowling Green and Richmond II Craftsman model at Akron-Medina feature Trex decks. There are also several models that show covered concrete porches. The Ashland Charleston features a stamped concrete covered patio, and the Columbia Farmhouse model also has a concrete patio.
How to care for an outdoor deck:
- Trex composite decks are easy to take care of and maintain. It’s a huge part of their appeal. See how to clean and care for your composite deck– https://www.trex.com/trex-owners/care-and-cleaning/
- A concrete patio or porch requires some TLC to keep it looking great. Here’s how to clean and care for concrete patio/porch– https://www.concretenetwork.com/concrete-patio/maintenance.htm
If you are building a second home or vacation home from our Lake Collection, a deck is a wonderful feature to take advantage of a view or great location. Just imagine…lounging on the deck overlooking the lake for a lazy summer you’ll never forget. Or, gazing at the mountains or beautiful landscape. That’s right–our Lake Collection can be built anywhere you want. It’s not a requirement to be near the water. Look at this lake house deck inspiration from our collection.
