Makeover Monday: A Patio Transformation in Towson, Maryland

Decks offer numerous advantages over traditional patios, making them a popular choice for homeowners seeking functional and aesthetically pleasing outdoor spaces. One key benefit is versatility in design and construction. Decks can be built at various heights and configurations to accommodate uneven terrain or take advantage of scenic views, providing homeowners with greater flexibility in tailoring their outdoor living space. Unlike patios, which are typically ground-level, decks can extend the usable space of upper floors, creating seamless indoor-outdoor transition. Additionally, decks are an excellent choice for regions with unpredictable weather, as they elevate occupants above damp or uneven ground, offering a cleaner and more enjoyable outdoor experience.

Homeowners in Towson, Maryland contacted Fence & Deck Connection to transform their outdoor patio into a more extravagant outdoor living space. With the help and design expertise of Project Consultant Steve Nehus, our Baltimore County clients now have a beautiful TimberTech Azek second story deck.

We first constructed a 19′ x 13′ free-standing deck using high-quality pressure treated wood. We then secured TimberTech Azek Landmark decking using hidden fasteners. For this project, our customers chose the American Walnut hue. American Walnut is a deep, cool brown with a range of hues from chocolatey brown to ashy black for a rustic tone that resembles walnut hardwood. For the railing, we installed white vinyl Lincoln-style railing with black aluminum balusters. An American Walnut cap rail provides a great space to place beverages or planters. The deck was wrapped with white PVC fascia with mitered corners for a clean, finished look.

No longer ground level, this outdoor space was equipped with one set of steps with two 4′ x 4′ landings — one mid-landing and another at the top of the stairs. For a lovely after-dark ambiance, we installed white Venus post cap lights on each rail post. The deck is even more gorgeous even when the sun sets!
