Did you ever think about the word deck? Unless you’re a deck builder, it’s not likely something to cross your mind. Even in the construction business, it's not a common thought. The Online Etymology Dictionary dates the word back to the mid-15th century decke, a Middle Dutch word for “covering.” It’s a meaning that holds true for many types of decks today. Think of the tall, second-story decks with enough space underneath to cover tools and outdoor equipment.
Of course, the purpose of the front porch or pool deck isn’t coverage alone. Some options, like low laying and ground level decks, don't provide a lot of coverage or any coverage at all. Instead, they fulfill other purposes like accentuating homes and creating a level area for enjoying the outdoors. Perhaps the best use of a deck, however, is the obvious one: entering and exiting above ground pools and multi-story buildings. In this case, they make for a practical addition. Last but not least, decks serve as a great place for entertainment. They're an excellent area to host family and friends while enjoying the outdoors.
All this is to say, there are many types of decks that can meet the needs of your home or business. The team at Warren Construction is happy to help build one for you.
