What’s the Difference Between a Deck, Porch and Patio?
Deck: Decks are an open-air platform attached to your home. These can be just along one side of your house or can wrap around, even connecting to reach both front and rear or side doors of your home.
Porch: A porch is attached to your home in the same way as a deck, but features a roof, making it partially enclosed and protecting those sitting or standing on it from the weather.
Patio: A patio is an area – generally detached from the home, but not necessarily – that is at ground level. It is paved with concrete or paver stones, and offers a space for entertaining.
What Are Some Types of Decks?
There are many different options you can choose to enhance your enjoyment of the great outdoors at
your home in Elbert, CO:
Wraparound Deck: Wraparound decks or porches take advantage of the edges of your home and offer multiple perspectives for you to enjoy.
Multi-Tier Deck: Multi-tier decks offer a top and bottom level, connected with a stairway. This leaves the lower level partially protected and an elevated view for greater visibility.
Attached Deck: An attached deck is a classic and traditional option. Most often, these are added to the rear of the home, with roofing added to create an inviting porch.
Detached Deck: Detached decks act similarly to patios, creating a standalone space for you to entertain. Whereas patios are often paved, a detached deck will be built from wood.
Rooftop/Over Garage Deck: Reclaim space over your garage by adding a rooftop deck. This design converts the space over your garage into a flat area for entertaining.
Elevated Decks: Elevated decks are ideal for homes located on slopes or backing up to a steep change in elevation, creating new space supported by pillars.
Custom Decks: Do you have a uniquely shaped home or distinctive property features? We can work with you to create a custom deck, porch or patio solution.
Extensions and Enclosures: Already have a deck? Our team of deck, porch and patio contractors can help take it further or add roofing to convert it into a more enjoyable space.
Water View Decks: Take advantage of your waterfront property by adding a water view deck. Depending on the proximity of your property, we may even be able to extend it into a dock!
