Imagine this: It's a warm summer night and the kids are playing in the backyard, while you and your significant other sit on a brand new deck, sipping cool drinks with a soft wind nipping at the back of your neck. Doesn't that sound nice?
Not only does adding a new deck enhance the look and feel of your home, but you can also enjoy that new deck for many summers. With a brand new deck, you have a place of solace, a place where you can relax and enjoy the sunrise-- or the sunset-- and a nice added amenity that can be enjoyed during all seasons of the year. Continue reading to learn about the four biggest benefits of adding a deck to your Connecticut home.
Relatively Fast InstallationAdding a deck to your home can be completed within a week. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that it will be easy to live within your home without all of the racket that can normally last weeks for other home projects. Plus, since it's an outdoor home renovation project, you won't have to worry about moving any of your furniture, or any other major preparation.
Additional Recreational Space & StorageAdding a deck to your property provides additional room for storage. With a Connecticut deck installation, you have a perfect place to store your barbecue, patio furniture, and even potted plants. If you don't have space in your garage, you could even store your bike on the deck. A deck is a space that is easy to furnish and will free up the yard for other interests and recreational activities.
Aesthetically AppealingThere are more materials for making decks on the market now than ever in the past. Express your design aesthetic with natural or composite materials, from exotic hardwoods to pine and from a traditional diagonal to a complex geometric design. You also have a wide variety of construction choices available to you, including traditional brass or steel screws and hardware and including fasteners that are entirely hidden from plain sight.
Increases Home ValueSitting outside on the deck allows you to entertain and enjoy the Connecticut outdoors. If you are remodeling for the purpose of maximizing the utility your home provides you, adding a deck is a great idea, and over 50% of the cost will be recouped when you decide to sell. CertainTeed is our favorite supplier of decking material. We use their products because they are made of resilient extruded polyvinyl chloride, a material that lasts in the harsh and always changing Connecticut climate.
