When you think about building a deck, there’s a good chance you’re doing it to add a place for you and your family to relax. You may not be thinking that this is a project that will add value and convenience to your home. It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re thinking about home improvement projects, but there are definite benefits to having a deck installed. Good Guys Contracting is the place to go if you need to install, replace or update a deck. So we want you to know why installing a deck is a smart move for homeowners.
Building a Deck is an Investment in Your Home
In 2010, US News and World Report created a list of the five best and five worst home improvement projects. They included adding a wooden deck as one of the five best projects and, according to the article, homeowners who install a deck recoup about 81 percent of their investment. Celia Kuperszmid Lehrman, the deputy home editor of Consumer Reports, told US News that decks appeal to those who are looking to save money by spending more time at home. “Since they are staying home they want to enjoy their exterior, they want to enjoy their outdoors,” she told the website.
Adding Appeal to Your Home and Flexibility to Your Life
In addition to recouping your investment, building a deck will also increase your home’s aesthetic appeal. With the right design and installation, it can give your home a great new look, make your yard more attractive as well. Building a deck will not become an endless home improvement project. Some decks can even be completed in about a week. As a rule, building or renovating a new deck tends to be inexpensive compared to other types of projects. Prices will differ depending on the size of the deck.
Another benefit to building a deck will be the added flexibility it will give to your living space. You’ll have more room to spread out and you’ll have a new space to host barbecues or outdoor parties. You can add outdoor furniture and have a new family gathering place, or an area to spend time with company. It will also give you a place to find solitude, relax, read or play. You can even sleep under the stars.
