Planning to Build a Deck in Bloomington, IL

Even among the most experienced handymen, the process of building a custom deck & installing it in your backyard is a daunting task. For both ease-of-use & safety concerns, you have to be sure that every step of the building process is up to the local Bloomington, IL code. Most homeowners will do some homework by searching online for things like “How to build a deck?” or “Custom Deck Building Plans”. They will quickly find that these informational guides are more complicated than originally expected, or that their home backyard setup has a unique layout or challenges and they will have to improve & deviate from the plans. About this time, we usually get a call asking for help.

Different Common Deck Styles

The main consideration when designing & building a custom deck in Bloomington, IL is what style you prefer. We outline a few of the more common styles we commonly see in the Central Illinois market, but feel free to give us a call if you have a more unique deck style that you want to build!


Single-Level Ground Deck

A single-level raised deck is extremely common on ranch & 1 story houses. Without the home having a higher up walk-out level, there is no need for the deck to be built high up. In addition to the cost savings from building this style of deck, it is also the safest form of deck as it doesn’t need railings or as much unnatural structural support.


Single-Level Raised Deck

Compared to a single-level ground deck, the main difference is this deck sits higher in the air – usually with an entrance from a home’s 2nd story. These decks will have higher railings and stairs that lead down to ground level. Often, the entrance to these custom decks will be off of a kitchen or living room. While more expensive than a single-level ground deck, a single-level raised deck can still be relatively simple when compared to a custom 2-story raised deck.


Custom Two-Story Raised Deck

The most expensive and customizable option in wood or composite deck building, the custom two-story raised deck is considered one of the premier deck styles in Central Illinois. These will often have entrances off of a 2nd story kitchen or living room will room for a grill and outdoor eating table – with space on the lower level usually designed around conversation with friends after dinner on comfy outdoor couches & other furniture.
