Top 5 Types of Outdoor Decks

A beautiful, well-built outdoor deck is more than just a place to sit. It can also be a dedicated space to entertain, eat and chat with your family and friends. There are a myriad of outdoor deck ideas, from designs to locations, and it is up to you to find the ideal situation for your needs. Today, we discuss the five different types of decks to consider.

Outdoor Decks

1. Attached Deck

An attached deck looks quite similar to a patio, except it is often made of wood or composite materials and is raised to a certain height. Commonly installed at the back of an L-shaped or U-shaped house, this type of deck can serve as a connecting platform for the exterior doors of both inside parts of the house.

2. Detached or Island Deck

A detached or island deck can be constructed anywhere on a residential property. However, it should still be accessible through a clear path or steps. This type of deck is more forgiving for locations with rocky or uneven surfaces and can be built above any form of terrain, making it more adaptable.

3. Wraparound Deck

A wraparound deck is like an old-fashioned wraparound porch. But unlike a traditional porch, parts of the deck can be larger and more pitted, and appear room-like. Many homeowners opt for this deck type because it allows them to follow the sun or shade and extend the living space of their home.

4. Multi-Level Deck

A multi-level deck features a series of decks positioned on different levels. It is the ideal choice for properties with wide-reaching outdoor square footage. Most times, the terrain dictates the need for a multi-level deck. Slopes, hills and uneven landscaping will have a hard time accommodating a ground-level or platform structure.

5. Swimming Pool Deck

Building a decking around a swimming pool is a smart move because it is slip-resistant and will not scorch bare feet. The warmth and rustic appeal of wood decking make it a fitting surrounding design for a koi pond or pool.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

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?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

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.
