Deck Addition: Smart Return on Investment

beautiful new deckWith summer just around the corner, many homeowners are considering the pleasures of outdoor living spaces, whether covered patios, decks or gazebos. According to Remodeling magazine’s yearly “Cost vs. Value” report, a deck addition is a smart home addition, typically yielding an 80 to 90 percent return on the original investment. This is primarily because, compared to a garage or bedroom addition, a deck increases usable living area at a minimal cost per square foot.

Not only is a deck a clever way for property owners to maintain or enhance their home’s value, this addition provides countless ways to relax with family and friends. Imagine grilling burgers and hotdogs with friends in the summer, or hosting a New Year’s Eve champagne toast under the stars. For Halloween, a deck is the perfect spot for a jack-o-lantern carving contest with the kids.

In short, a deck provides an inviting space for entertaining, BBQ parties, or just getting back to nature.

We’ll discuss the pros and cons of the various available materials (pressure treated woods, composite decking, hardwoods, aluminum or bamboo) as well as design ideas to highlight the perimeter with railings or planters.
