My deck is going to be constructed around the second story of my house. Any tips?

customers/contractors will paint the brackets a color which complements the bottom of the deck. Painting requires a primer and then an exterior grade metal paint or coating. If you desire to use the areas under the deck for more recreation or a storage area, you may want to install a corrugated “under deck” panel to capture the rain runoff. Be sure to slope the panel away from the house.
