Decking Trends for 2016

It’s finally Springtime, and people all across Chicagoland are dreaming of spending warm Summer days and evenings outside. What better way to celebrate the upcoming warmer weather than to let Rusco help you extend your outdoor living space with a new custom vinyl or wood composite deck?

While there are many options to consider when designing a deck, consider these custom design options and elements and how they may increase the visual impact and future resale value of your home:


Multi-level / Multi-story

With a multi-level deck there are predetermined areas which all harmoniously flow together. The grilling area, entertaining area, and the hot tub area could each be on their own level or section, yet still easily accessed by all.

A multi-story deck has completely separate entertaining areas, separated by stairways and can be especially useful if your main exterior door of your home is not on ground level or if your deck extends around and above-ground pool.

Rounded edge designs

Looking to give your outdoor space a truly organic and unique feel? Impress your guests and neighbors with the elegance of a curved deck that will showcase your home with its nature-inspired lines. In addition, adding curves especially on a second story deck can potentially add usable space and provide additional covered shelter on the ground.

Alternative vinyl and composite materials

Traditional wood decks require annual maintenance to maintain their safety and natural beauty, which results in copious amounts of time, money and effort spent by the homeowner. Give yourself the gift of time and relaxation with either Azek Vinyl Decking or TimberTech Composite Decking or Railings, as both products are low-to-no maintenance and are available in a variety of colors to perfectly compliment your home’s exterior.


From functional to aesthetic design, to a variety of colors and textures, our design experts at Rusco can help create the deck or porch of your dreams. Call Rusco for your personal decking design consultation in the Chicagoland suburbs.
