Should Your Deck Be Level With Your Home?

You can’t go wrong with adding a deck to increase your living space. However, adding one is no simple feat since you’ll need thorough planning to pull it off correctly. Keep in mind that when you’re designing your deck, you’ll need to consider a few key factors. This also includes whether or not your deck should be level with your home. 

Deck Level
  • Raised decks, such as custom decks, are heavily influenced by your home’s design. For instance, elevated ranch-style ramblers with split-level flooring can be found with raised decks on the second floor. Outdoor stair access to the upper floor deck can match the height of the indoor stairwell. The height should match the backdoor for easier access. Outdoor stairs can also be built to create another entry point to the deck from your backyard.
  • Building a deck “at grade” means that you’re building it on the same level as the ground. It goes without saying that a decking system like this is easier to build. However, they are more prone to moisture damage. Make sure that you use water-resistant materials, or utilize waterproofing seals so that you won’t have water-related issues.

Regardless of the choice you’ll make, it’s important to work with credible and courteous contractors to help you all throughout the decking process. They can help you to pick decking choices to get the best one that will increase your home’s curb appeal.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
