Two Story Decks in Woodstock, GA

Benefits of a Two-Story Deck

A two-story deck creates a multi-functional outdoor living space for your family to relax, dine, entertain, and enjoy the fresh air. Two-story decks are highly customizable and create space that adds value, comfort, and convenience to your home. The biggest benefits of adding a two-story deck to your home are:

  • Added outdoor living space for dining, relaxing, and entertaining.
  • A more versatile and functional deck space.
  • Increased privacy.
  • Enhanced views of your surrounding landscape.
  • Increased property value.
  • More space for potted plants and other decorations.
  • Additional emergency exit for your home.
  • Extension of your indoor living space to the outdoors.

Considerations for Two-Story Deck Designs

When we begin your two-story deck design, we will work closely with you to understand your needs and goals and make sure we can bring your vision to life. We will assess the age, condition, and structural stability of your property to make sure it can support the construction of a two-story deck. We will then go over your options for two-story deck designs. The most important things to consider when designing a two-story deck are:

  • The age, condition, and structural stability of your home and what type of deck it can support.
  • How much privacy you want your deck area to have.
  • Your local permitting and building code requirements.
  • Your neighbors.
  • How will you and your family access your deck.
  • Whether your home is built on flat ground or a hill or incline.
  • The best materials for building a deck in your region.

  • Your plans for your home.
  • How the design of the deck will affect your choice of seating and dining furniture, lighting, sound system installation, and more.
  • How close the deck is to your pool, spa, or other outdoor living areas.
  • Whether the deck can be accessed by local wildlife.
  • Overhanging trees that could damage the deck over time or increase maintenance.

Two-Story Deck Planning & Building Process

We take a highly individualized approach toward the two-story deck planning and building process. We understand that no two homes and no two clients are alike, so we do not use a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Instead, we will have in-depth consultations with you to discuss your vision for your home, future plans, and purpose in adding a deck or outdoor living space to your home. We can then begin designing your deck. In general, the planning and building process includes:

  • Initial Consultations – These initial consultations are to discuss your goals, vision, plans for your home, and how your deck will improve your property.
  • Site Assessment – We will conduct a site assessment and evaluation of the available space, the age and condition of your home, and its ability to support the addition of a deck safely.
  • Two-Story Deck Design – Discussion of the deck design and deck materials. We will also provide an initial estimate for the cost of your deck.
  • Permitting – Acquiring the proper building permits for your deck.
  • Deck Design Finalization – Finalizing your deck design and getting your approval.
  • Estimate – At this point, we will provide an updated estimate for the cost of building a two-story deck.

  • Site Preparation – This includes marking off the deck area, removing the topsoil, leveling and compacting the ground, and laying down landscaping fabric and gravel. You will have a final chance to change your design or make adjustments before we lay the foundation. We will then lay concrete deck footings and begin placing deck posts.
  • Construction of Your Deck – After laying the foundation, we will begin building the actual deck. We will keep you carefully informed throughout this process so you know how long it will take and what to expect. We make every effort to minimize noise and inconvenience.
  • Finishing Touches – We will then install any finishing touches, like railings, stairs, lighting, speakers, and other specialties.
  • Inspection – We will handle all final inspections to ensure your deck is safe and ready to use. We will review our work with you to ensure it exceeds your expectations. We will also discuss the proper care and maintenance of your two-story deck.
