Spring and summer are just around the corner, and there are few things better than starting off a sunny morning with a hot cup of coffee or tea while sitting out on the deck. Or, having friends over and enjoying a nice evening grilling and having dinner in the great outdoors.

On the other hand, if you don’t already have a deck added to your home, it may seem like a daunting task to have one installed. But it is important to consider the value you get out of having a deck installed. In today’s post, we are going to be going over some of the key benefits of having a deck added to your home in order to give you a good idea of the value you can get out of doing so.

1. It improves the value of your home.

When you have a deck professionally installed to your home from a reliable deck builder, your home will almost always improve in value. And, if you are thinking that your current house may not be your forever home, having a deck can almost always give your resale value a substantial bump depending on the quality of the deck and the amount of spacial compromise you make with your yard.

2. It adds functionality to your home.

Space from decks, porches, and patios offer more functionality to your home along with a wide variety of outdoor living benefits that you will surely find useful all year long. For example, have you ever found yourself hankering for a grilled steak or vegetables during the snowy winter months? While that is something that may not be accomplished very easily in an uneven, snow-filled yard, it is no problem when you have a deck with a roof or an awning!

3. It improves home’s curb appeal.

While there are many different ways you can enhance the look of your yard — from pergolas to a nice garden or some new grass — adding a deck will almost always add to your yard’s aesthetic appeal as well.

4. It is low maintenance.

Unlike most other aspects of your home, decks are typically pretty low maintenance and require less effort to keep in good shape. Where a kitchen expansion will create more space to be cleaned, you won’t find yourself sweeping or washing your deck on a constant basis. A nice weatherproof stain to your deck upon installation or whenever there are signs of wear should last for years and won’t require much upkeep.

5. It adds livable space to your home.

What’s better than being able to spend quality time with your family and friends outdoors? With a deck on your home, it increases the amount of space where you can hang out at your home. You will also find that you have new places to work, play, and enjoy family and friend time, while also having more room to store your outdoor items as well.

6. It is relatively inexpensive.

When compared to other home additions, the cost to install a deck is substantially lower. While this will depend greatly on the size of your deck and what your wants and needs for your deck are, some decks can cost as little as $2,000 while more custom, fancier decks can run upwards of $18,000 or more.
