By fiderioandsons Mar 14, 2016

Want to turn your old backyard into a space with flair? Adding a deck offers several benefits to the homeowner that can save you money and give you extra space to enjoy. This article discusses how you can utilize the extra yard space by investing in a new deck.

A Place to Relax Outdoors

Adding a deck to your backyard gives you a place to enjoy the outdoors in a relaxing environment. There are times you just want to lie down, read a good book and soak up the sun without having to be directly on the ground. Upgrade from lawn chairs on the grass to a place outside that is a part of your home and adds space to enjoy when guests come over. Whether you are hosting a birthday party or having family over for a BBQ, a deck provides additional space for everyone to enjoy their time together.

Enhancing Your Home’s Value

A deck not only increases your home’s appearance but also your home’s value. Potential buyers seek additions that make homes stand out from the rest and a deck is one of those qualities they look for. According to the 2016 Cost Vs Value Report, You will be able to recoup up to 75 percent with a wooden deck or 64 percent of a composite deck from the cost of the installation by the amount it will raise the overall property value of your home. This exceeds what can be recouped from other home additions. This means installing a new deck is a worthwhile investment for you and your home.

A Quick and Inexpensive Addition

Typically, decks can be completed in as quickly as a week. You get a great new investment for your home without having to withstand the loud noises and people walking around for a long period of time. Other projects such as remodeling or adding a new bathroom can take months to complete but you can quickly add a deck and start using it right away.

According to Sundaybell, decks cost significantly less than other home additions, making them a great option for those on a budget who still want to enhance their home in some way without taking out a loan. The cost of a deck ranges, but depends on the type of lumber used, as well as how large it will be, often ranging from $20 to $35 per square foot on average.

With the availability of a designer deck you can get the look you have always wanted to enhance your backyard.There are many different styles of decks available and you can have your choice of style, design and color. Add dimension to your yard and boost the overall visual appearance for a n aesthetic appeal.
