Decks are wonderful places to spend time with friends and family, especially in spring, summer and fall. The opportunity to be outside and enjoy the fresh air makes decks a popular addition to both new and established homes. Additionally, investing in outdoor spaces like screened in porches, sunrooms or decks can increase your home’s value.
If you already have a deck, but aren’t totally satisfied with it, we can either repair your existing deck or completely replace it. If you want to make your deck bigger, we can add onto an existing deck, as well.
Deck Types, Heights and Styles Offered by EnRich Construction
There are several different types of outdoor spaces you can add to your home. These include patios, sunrooms, screened in porches, decks, outdoor kitchens, pool areas and more. EnRich Construction is Columbia’s top choice for affordable home construction and remodeling. We’ll deliver the outdoor space you’ve always dreamt of.
Ground Level Deck
A ground level deck, or platform deck, is a deck that sits low to the ground or directly on the ground. This deck height is usually used for pool, attached or detached, wraparounds or porch decks.
Raised decks are raised off of the ground using support columns. These columns can be made of wood or something more decorative like brick. Raised decks are used for first and second story decks, as well as multi level and sometimes pool decks.
If you have a swimming pool in your backyard, a custom pool deck really transforms the space. Wood composite material prevents splinters and doesn’t get as hot as concrete, making it the best choice for pool decks. Pool decks provide entertaining or sunbathing space around your pool.
Multi Level Deck
Multi Level decks are decks that are built on different elevations. Each portion of the deck is connected with steps or paths. This type of deck is suited for those with larger backyards that are uneven. Multilevel decks can be as large or small as you want.
An attached deck is attached to your home and made of wood or wood composite decking materials. It functions just like a concrete patio, but differs because of the material used. Attached decks are great for seating or outdoor dining areas.
A detached or island deck is a deck built away from your home somewhere else in your yard. This can be a great option for backyard gardens or if there are structural challenges to building an attached deck.
Wraparound decks are like wraparound porches, but can be larger or uneven. This type of deck is slightly elevated and encompasses your home. Wraparound decks are wonderful spaces for relaxation and allow you to follow the shade or sun depending on the time of day.
2019 Decking and Outdoor Trends for Columbia, MO
For 2019, we’re seeing a rise in desire for outdoor spaces for entertaining and relaxation. Homeowners are interested in creating more shade and comfort through roofing, deck positioning, materials used and features like sunshades. We’re also seeing an interest in bolder colors both in decking and outdoor spaces in general. This means both the color of the deck itself as well as the way the deck and outdoor area is accessorized. Younger homeowners are taking an interest in outdoor gardens and water features, as well. We expect to see more custom deck designs built around garden features.
