Having a deck added onto your home gives you a great place to host family and friends, so will a patio, but adding both a deck and patio will provide you with the ultimate party spot. You’ll be able to invite your entire family and all of your friends to your home. At North American Deck & Patio, we’ve helped a lot of homeowners add decks and patios to their homes, including many patios below decks. We wanted to talk about why building a deck with a patio below is a great idea.
Your Deck Will Keep Your Patio Dry
If it’s really stormy outside, you’ll likely have to move the party indoors; but if it’s just regular rainfall, you can move to your patio as your deck will be protecting it. This is a huge positive gained by building a deck with a patio below. We can’t prevent the rain, but we can adapt our homes to help accommodate us when it does rain. Adding a deck above a patio is one of the best ways to do this.
The Designs of Your Deck and Patio Can Accent One Another
When adding just one deck or patio to your home, you’ll want to incorporate its design into the design of your home. When you add a deck and a patio, you’ll be able to have both of them accent your home, as well as each other. We have the experience required to help you find the best design for you and your home.
Adding Steps that Connect Your Patio and Deck is a Great Design Idea
If you have friends and family on both your deck and patio, there’s a good incentive to have those two connected, and the easiest way to do that is to add steps that connect your patio and deck. Adding steps to connect your deck and patio isn’t difficult, and is something that any quality Maryland decking and patio company will be able to help you with.
You Can Hang Lights, Fans, and Heaters From Your Deck
With your deck above your patio, you’ll be able to hang lights, fans, or heaters from your deck, and all who are on the patio will reap the benefits. You, and your guests, don’t have to deal with high or low temperatures, and don’t have to stop the party just because the sun goes down. This is something you can discuss with your decking/patio contractor during the design phase, to ensure you’ll have enough space under your deck to put all of the lights, fans, or heaters you’d like. There are so many benefits to building a deck above a patio onto your Maryland home.
