One of the common styles Premier Deck’s builders recreate for New Hampshire homeowners is the wraparound, which is highly valued for its expansive functionality. By installing a deck like this as an attachment to your home — which “wraps around” two or more sides of the house — certain areas are in the sun while overs are in the shade. This gives you the freedom to use the space during whatever time of day you’d like, and the deck can be accessed through several different doors.


An attached style is what most homeowners think about when the term “deck” comes to mind. The Premier Deck team can help you build an outdoor living space that functions essentially like a patio, typically with either an L-shape or U-shaped design. This type of project is also “attached” to the home, and is perfect for making the most out of a smaller yard, or for creating a space for family and friends to gather.


As the name suggests, the “detached” style from Premier Deck is the exact opposite of the “attached” style; also known as “island decks,” a project of this nature is not built as an adornment to a house, and instead is it’s own structure in a backyard. While uncommon, this is the perfect way to create a mini “getaway” from your busy home where you can grill, lounge, sunbathe, or have a romantic night in.


If your home is situated on a slope of sorts, much like other New Hampshire and Maine homes, when a multi-level deck can safely guide visitors from your home and into the backyard; this allows you to better utilize your property. Premier Deck is more than capable of building a deck that is attached to the house, and features platforms on multiple pitches connected with either stairs or walkways.
