Typically, a backyard deck is a roofless platform that is built with lumber and attached to your house. A deck can be built over the ground or directly on the ground. Decks are usually supported by columns and include wooden front steps with a landing. Decks are a popular way to increase the enjoyment of your outdoor property.

A porch is traditionally a leisure area under the overhang of a house’s roof. Its typically located in the front entrance of a home. Porches can be attached to the front of a home without a roof, but typically they are built with a roof to provide shade and protection from the forces of nature. The addition of a porch offers you a perfect spot where you can add outdoor furniture, relax after a long day, or enjoy a cup of coffee in the fresh morning air.
