The Benefits of Adding a Deck to Your Home

Adding an outdoor deck is one of the most popular additions and upgrades people make to a home.  A deck provides a great place for hosting events with friends and spending family time outside. There are many benefits to adding a deck.
 
A deck makes a home more visually appealing and enhances the home’s overall quality. It can add dimension to a yard. Decks can be stained or painted to match the color scheme and design of a home.
 
A deck adds an additional place to host parties and gatherings. Whether it be a birthday party, a cookout, or just a place to lounge with family and friends. A deck is a great gathering place during the warmer months.
 
If you are looking to increase the value of your home, a deck is a good idea. A deck naturally increases the value of a home. Experts say that you can recoup over 70% of the cost of building a deck by the amount it raises the property value if you plan to sell. This far exceeds the amount other types of home additions add to the overall value of your property.
 
Adding a deck adds space. A deck gives you additional areas to place patio furniture, a grill and plants.  You can even add a storage area to your deck for outdoor items, bikes, and more. A deck can free up other areas of your yard for outdoor activities.
 
Decks are one of the least expensive types of addition to add to a home. They also can be built rather quickly in comparison to other home additions that can take months to complete.
