Decks / January 12, 2015
When you want to upgrade your home, add value and increase its year-round usability, the best way to do so is with a deck. Whether you want to spend quiet time relaxing outside, you want to spend more time with your family playing and enjoying the great outdoors or you want to entertain guests in beautiful weather, a deck will make it easier and much more enjoyable to do so. A beautiful deck creates the perfect place to dine al fresco or watch children play in the yard.
A deck can be scaled up or down to meet the needs of your home, yard and specific landscape. Not only can size be changes but shape and elevation to create your ideal outdoor environment. Your deck can essentially function as addition square footage of yoru home whenever weather permits. If you have a smaller interior of your home, adding a deck creates additional entertaining space for larger gatherings. Consider installing French doors or large sliding glass panels so that you can create an indoor/outdoor experience that flows directly from your living room right out onto the deck. Additionally, by building a deck you add substantial value to your home. Should you ever decide to sell your home it will be worth more and it will also be more appealing to potential buyers. This means that a deck will help your home sell more quickly and, likely, for more money than it would have otherwise. A deck is a relatively inexpensive addition to your home when comparing it to other options and can be built very quickly. This means that you will see more return on yoru money when you invest in a deck than if you were to invest in a different kind of addition to your home.
A deck also adds curb appeal to your home. The exterior of your home gives an impression of what to expect on the inside of your home. By creating a luxurious outdoor environment it helps enhance the overall aesthetic of your home and increase curb appeal. A deck also gives your landscape a completed look and tied everything together. Rather than placing a table out in some rocks or dirt you can create an outdoor living space on your deck. When you have a deck you are far more likely to spend more time outside, enjoying the wonderful weather and fully utilizing your yard than if you did not. A deck is a beautiful addition to any home but unless you are skilled in carpentry it is best to hire a contractor or handyman to complete the job. A deck needs to be prepared, stained, and finished correctly in addition to installed correctly to extend the life of the deck and ensure its safety.
