A Slightly Raised Deck Package is ideal if your home is at or near ground level. In addition to providing access to your kitchen and/or living room, the slightly raised design creates a unified entertainment space between your deck and your backyard. The size of your deck and personal style will help determine your décor, whether it’s a simple barbecue and bistro set or a full dining table with couches and other furniture. The composite decking closely resembles the lustre and beauty of natural wood but requires far less maintenance. It won’t split or splinter and will not fall prey to termites or other pests. It can also withstand extreme temperature fluctuations, though composite decking does get hot in direct sunlight. All Home Hardware Backyard Projects include quality materials, comprehensive plans, detailed cutting & assembly instructions and helpful, expert advice.
