Any homeowner, and especially the proud owner of a new home, always seems to posses the never-ending home improvement list. Although this list can be stressful, it is always rewarding to be able to check something off. If installing a deck is on your list, make this the time to cross it off. Summer is the #1 time of year that decks are used most, so you will want to start this project in the Spring.
If you are feeling hesitant, keep in mind that the construction period for a deck is typically about a week. Additionally, you will need to check with your contractor to see what their wait time is. Some contractors might be able to begin right away, however most will be one to several weeks out. With this information, beginning in early spring should mean that your new deck will be ready for summer. Building a deck is one of the best things you can do for yourself and home because of the many benefits it offers.
Fun New Living Space
What do you plan on doing this summer? Are you looking to entertain outdoors? Maybe you have always wanted to, but never could because of the inadequate outdoor living space you had in the past. With a new deck, you will be able to earn the title of “best host” by providing your guests with optimal entertainment space! Guests will feel comfortable with the space to congregate and socialize. Along with great parties, your deck can provide you and your family with a spot to enjoy relaxing dinners during the warmer months.
Valuable Visual Appeal
Your back yard’s landscape will completely change for the better once a deck is added. There are many deck designs and varieties to choose from; your deck can be simple or complex, depending on your personal style and budget. Decks are available in natural wood, composite, and PVC; each offering different options for color, texture and design. Take your deck to the next level by decorating it with planters, lights, outdoor furniture, a grill, – the options are numerous. Adding a new deck will not only add aesthetic value to your home, but will increase its resale value as well!
A Cost Effective Addition
The cost of adding living space to your home can range from very expensive to affordable. If you are looking for a cost effective solution for additional living space, in most cases, a deck will be a more affordable solution than an indoor expansion. Decks will not require many of the more costly options that additions will, such as roofing, siding, wiring, windows, or insulation. Your deck cost will be driven by its size, design and materials. The costs associated with each different type of deck vary greatly. Wood is the most affordable option, followed by composite and then PVC. Your deck contractor will be able to work with you to fit a beautiful new deck into your budget.
