A floating deck is essentially a deck that is free-standing and is not attached in any way to the house. Some of the benefits you can enjoy with this structure include:
Easier to Construct
This deck is perfect for those who love DIY projects as it can be constructed easily compared to an attached deck. It also takes a shorter time to construct compared to a normal deck.
A floating deck requires fewer materials, meaning elements like labor will come at lower costs and you won’t need to buy large volumes of material. You can opt for prefabricated materials and
No Railing Requirements
Since floating decks are at ground level, they don’t need any form of railing or barriers unless you would personally like to include them for aesthetic purposes. However, there are no building codes that require you to add this fixture.
Enhanced Safety Levels
The fact that floating decks are based at ground level means that there is a significant increase in safety levels in terms of falling off the structure. This can be a great benefit for households with children or senior citizens.
