Decks and pergolas are ideal for enjoying your backyard space, whether you are grilling out, “hot tubbing” or simply sitting around with friends.

The most basic backyard feature that a home can have for enjoying the outdoors is a deck or patio. Open decks and patios are ideal for “hot tubbing” and grilling out because of their open design. Features such as safety rails, built-in benches, planters and privacy fencing can be added depending on the intended uses of the homeowner. The addition of a pergola adds beauty and style to your outdoor living space along with providing shade from the sun.

Materials range from treated lumber to specialty woods such as cedar and composite decking, depending on your budget. Carolina Home Exteriors can help you design and build your new deck, patio or pergola and get you started on your way to the outdoor lifestyle.
