Deciding what configuration to choose for your deck may be stressful and confusing. Remember your deck should flow with the shape of your house. Don’t change your house to fit your deck, fit your deck to your house. Ground-level decks are less elaborate than other decking installations, and depending on your local building codes, may not require any railings because of their close proximity to the ground. If you’re looking for something that offers a little extra design; a wraparound deck, an elevated deck or a multilevel deck are some other decking options.
