Second-story decks and patios can be very appealing features for Ottawa residents to add to their homes as well as for business owners looking to add more outdoor space for their customers to enjoy. A second-story deck can be a great option when there is limited yard space or you are looking to have a more panoramic view than a ground-level deck can provide.
Railings, of course, at the second level are essential for safety and compliance with building codes. At Jans Awnings, we offer customized railing solutions for both residential and commercial buildings. Our railings offer the ultimate combination of safety and elegance as they are available in various colours, styles, and designs to suit any setting.
Advantages of second-story patios
Second-story patios can offer Ottawa homeowners and business owners an ideal, convenient outdoor space. Just imagine walking straight from your bedroom to your upper-level deck to enjoy a leisurely Saturday breakfast or taking a break from the home office to get a little sun without ever having to put your shoes on! If the second-story patio is for a commercial building, your business will get a reputation for being a great place to go out with friends to enjoy warm summer evenings.
Add to that the fact that second-story patios have a certain “cool factor” to them. The view is often better, and it’s a great place to indulge in your favourite beverage with some of your favourite people.
Some Ottawa homes and businesses have a second-story deck located directly above their ground-level deck, so the upper deck serves the dual purpose of being both a deck in itself and offering shelter for the lower deck.
Second-story decks, along with beautiful and functional railings, can be customized to suit the style of almost any building.
