Many times when you drive up to a property the first thing you see is the front deck or porch. So it is a signature of the building before you ever enter it. Some are built from stone, wood, or limestone.

Typical construction of a deck or porch relies on posts anchored to footing in the ground generally made from concrete, and sometimes stone in older homes. The landing and stairs may be concrete, wood, and steel. Local ordinance require railings for safety. A canopy can be added to control sunlight, and keep the entrance dry. Other options like lighting and motion sensors are added for curb appeal and safety. Many people want to use the unused space over the garage or on the roof of the structure, where a roof deck would allow more space to entertain in the warmer months.
