Should a Deck Be Level With the Door?

Side view of a beautiful wooden deck attached to a homeAre you interested in having a gorgeous new deck installed on your home? There are many factors you should consider before your installation. Other than the obvious design factors such as style, color, and material, you need to ensure that your deck is leveled correctly to avoid future complications.

Why Your Deck Shouldn’t Be Level With Your Door

Oftentimes, homeowners who are looking to have a deck installed on their homes believe that their new deck should be flush with their door. While this technique may look seamless against your home, it is actually unsafe and potentially damaging. If your deck is level with your door, you will risk water damage to your home and create a more common slipping hazard for yourself and your guests. Without a proper slope, the water will not slide off the deck. Instead, it will sit in place and leak into your home through the cracks of your door. To avoid injuries and expensive water damage repairs, be sure to have your deck leveled with a gap or slope away from your door. For optimal results, find a professional deck installation company and ask them specific questions about deck installations, safety, and products.
