Are you looking to maximize your outdoor space or make your backyard more accessible to more areas of your house?
Have you ever dreamed of walking out of your master bedroom onto a private deck? Or perhaps you want to connect your patio by the walkout basement with the kitchen on the main floor.
Who wants to walk needlessly around the house when a second story deck could easily connect the two? It might be time to consider this outdoor addition.
A deck is one of the most coveted pieces of a house. It’s a key selling-point, as long as it’s in good shape because it extends the “living space” of your home in two to three seasons of the year.
In addition, a deck can provide a safe and comfortable spot to sit outside and enjoy your yard, as well as house amenities like an outdoor kitchen, a pergola, or even a hot tub.
A deck also adds visual interest and dimension to the outside of your house. It gives any home a finished look.
Second-story Deck Advantages
A second-story deck can be even more advantageous.

Did you know that beautiful landscaping adds as much as 20% to the value of your home?
It kind of makes you want to splurge on that flowering tree or those stone pavers, doesn’t it?
It’s true; outdoor spaces are getting just as much attention as the house itself these days. When you see what a difference it can make on some of these home and garden shows to clean up your landscape, you want to do it too.
