What Are the Benefits of Adding a Deck to Your Home?

By fiderioandsons Mar 25, 2016





For those CT homeowners looking to upgrade their home, there are a number of ways to make it more functional year-round. Adding an awe-inspiring outdoor deck is one of the most popular home additions, working to provide a comfortable place for hosting events with friends and spending family time outside. There are a plethora of benefits associated with adding a new deck.

High Return on Investment

Perhaps one of the best benefits of adding a deck to your home is how it naturally increases a home’s value. According to Remodeling magazine, decks place fourth in remodeling ROI, and boast an 86.7% return on investment while adding usable space to your home. This surpasses what can be recouped from other home additions, including adding a living room, extra bathroom, or even a sunroom.

Relatively Inexpensive

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.

Aesthetic Appeal

CT decks provides extra design to any home, making it more visually appealing while enhancing the home’s overall quality. Decks can add dimension to any yard for an attractive property that stands out. You can stain the wood of the deck to fit into the color scheme of your shutters and the design of your house to make it look natural and appealing.

Additional Space

A backyard deck or patio is an excellent way to spend more time outside in the privacy of your own home. Whether you are throwing a birthday party or having a summer BBQ, a deck provides additional space. A new deck will work as a great place to host guests for a dinner party or even to have an extra place to lounge and relax during the warmer months. Adding a deck to your property will provide extra room to store a barbecue, patio furniture, and even potted plants. If you don’t have space in your garage, you could even store your bike. A deck is a space that is easy to furnish and will free up the yard for other interests and activities.

Quick Installation

Deck additions can be completed in as little as a week’s time. This makes it easier to live within the home without all of the noise and disturbance that can often last months for other home projects. If you need a deck tailored to your own specifications, you will need to have it constructed from scratch and this will definitely take some time. However, you can significantly reduce this time by opting for the services of an experienced contractor. The design you choose for your deck will also affect the time taken and very complex designs take longer to complete. If you need a complex deck finished fast, you should consider hiring the services of a contractor with a huge labor force. This will ensure that there is division of labor where different people will be working on different parts of the deck at the same time.

If you are considering doing the project yourself to save money, we suggest you at least speak to a professional first. We can help you understand the full costs involved to secure a successful project, and we can probably help you figure out methods for saving some money as well. If you hire someone, you will be adding labor costs, but that does not necessarily increase the overall cost of the project. After years of deck installation, have the skills to install ct decks efficiently, and most importantly, expert installation will prevent the warranty from being voided. That alone has a lot of value. It can’t hurt to have a consult, especially when it’s free!
