One of the biggest visual components of your deck is going to be the elevation level it’s on. There are usually three different elevation levels: low, medium, and high. Low elevation decks are for lower level walkouts, medium elevation decks are for lower level walkouts that are slightly above ground level, and high elevation decks are usually used to accommodate second level walkouts. Now, that probably sounds like a lot to take in! Let’s focus on one type of deck today, and explore the benefits of a high elevation deck!
Utilize Both Stories
If you have a basement with an entry that is level with the ground, you may be under the impression that you can’t have a deck. That’s not true! On your second floor, installing a door and a high elevation deck is the perfect way to make an easy access route to your second story. Hold outdoor parties on your deck without needing to walk down to the basement first. Make sure your living space is being used to its highest capacity.
Show Off Your Land
We all know everything looks better when viewed from a high place. If you’ve got a lovely landscape you’d like to show off, a high elevation deck is the perfect place to do so. It’s easy to hold cookouts when you’re able to present an amazing view. This is a particularly excellent solution for those with scenic backyards.
Parties With Storage
When you’ve got a high elevation deck, you can use the lower level for storage. Underneath your deck, you can add an enclosed area where you can place yard tools, gardening tools, and even drivable lawn mowers. It’s really up to you! However, a high elevation deck is sure to give you far more space and storage.
