The Benefits Of Having Multi-Level Decking At Home

Not meaning to put a curse on the weather, but there have been hints, over the past week or so, that outdoor conditions are slowly improving, as we get closer to the start of spring.


The very thought of warmer, drier and sunnier weather may be the springboard (excuse the pun) you need to seriously consider having UPVC decking fitted somewhere outside your house.

Spending lots of time outside this summer is certain to do you the world of good – it’s great for the mind – and owning a decked area will offer you the excuse you need to do it.

Depending on how you want to use the decking and your home’s rear layout, a single-level deck may not be the best option.

Multi-level decking might work better for your circumstances, a decking arrangement that comes with several benefits:

Overcomes any shortage of space

You don’t have to sacrifice your garden for the privilege of owning UPVC decking.

When there isn’t much garden space to extend outwards with some decking, you could always have it built upwards into one or more tiers.


Who said decking can only cater for one sole purpose?

You could create two spaces out of one with a split-level deck, potentially using one tier for topping up your tan on a cosy sunbed or chair, and the other for enjoying al fresco dining around an outdoor dinner table.

Visually stimulating

We doubt that you want any new decking you have put down to go unnoticed.

There’s little chance of a multi-layered deck escaping people’s attention as it will normally feature stairs, railings, balustrades etc. and have a distinctive shape.

Solves the problem of sloped ground

Most gardens have a slope of some kind, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of being able to add decking to them.

One of the most advantageous things about multi-level decking is that it can sit on uneven ground.

Lakeland Verandahs has designed and built bespoke multi-level decking for loads of residential properties, lodges and caravan and holiday parks. You can view several examples in this Gallery.
