CT Home Remodeling: 5 Reasons to Consider Adding a New Deck
By Your Fiderio Expert Jul 30, 2014
If you are seeking to make your home appear more beautiful and illustrious, sometimes it is a good plan to start with the exterior of your home. The conscious homeowner is always doing their best to maintain their home; inclusive of the interior and the exterior, keeping the paint, the trim, moldings, carpeting and tile flooring, roofing, windows etc. However, when it comes time to consider adding more external amenities to your home, there are lots of options to consider.
By adding a new deck to your home, you cannot only enhance the aesthetic and feel, but you can also enjoy that deck for many years to come. With a brand new deck, the homeowner has a place of solace, a place where they can relax and enjoy the sunrise– or the sunset– and a nice added amenity that can be enjoyed during all seasons of the year.
Here are five reasons to consider adding a deck to your home:
Short Construction Time
Decks don’t take that long to build or construct, and you can easily get a solid estimate on the time from a deck builder. In a matter of weeks you could be enjoying your brand new deck, and for many years to come, too.
Decks cost significantly less than other home additions, making them an interesting option for those homeowners who are on a budget but still want to enhance their home in some fashion without taking out a loan. The cost of a deck varies, but depends largely on the type of lumber used, as well as how large it will be, often ranging from $20-$35 per square foot on average.
A New Appearance
There are more decking materials on the market now than ever before. Express your design aesthetic with natural or composite materials, from exotic hardwoods to pine and from a traditional diagonal to a complex geometric design. There are also a variety of construction choices, starting with traditional brass or steel screws and hardware and including fasteners that are entirely hidden.
More Functional Capabilities
Outdoor living is such a popular trend that the market has responded with a huge variety of products built for outdoor living, from fire pits and fireplaces to outrageously comfortable seating arrangements designed to make your outside spaces as beautiful and versatile as the inside of your home.
High Return on Investment
Few areas add value to your home more than outdoor living spaces. Experts agree that a deck offers one of the highest return in value. You will get back a majority of the money you spent building a deck when you sell your home, and the additional curb appeal will help you sell it faster. Decks are one of the hottest trends in the home-buying market.
