Will A New Or Improved Deck Add Value To My Home?

This may be the million-dollar question we get here at Archadeck of Nashville. The answer to which is actually more complex than a simple “yes” or “no”.

looking for a deck builder near me

You may have heard that only heated and cooled room additions can be calculated in your home’s square footage, for determining market value of your home. The realtor term for this is probably really familiar to most, as it is called “heated square footage” But, let’s put the question of value into a broader context. Whether you’re considering your increased enjoyment or the increased allure for home buyers, heated and cooled square footage is not the only way to assign value.

Decks are highly sought-after amenities in many neighborhoods in the Nashville area. If adding a new outdoor living space helps your home stand out in comparison to others in your area, your home may sell more quickly. Like any other home improvement, the quality of the materials and workmanship associated with a deck addition will most definitely dictate the ROI you could expect should you ever decide to sell your home.

When considering value most of our clients add outdoor living spaces to their homes for their own enjoyment. Yes, it’s possible they may choose to sell the home at some point in the future. But their primary concern is usually creating an outdoor space that’s inviting and comfortable – either for personal relaxation or for entertaining.

When you add a custom deck to provide a new recreation area for your family, your return on investment comes from smiles and laughter. You may count your blessings as you sink into a cushioned deck chair and put your feet up to enjoy the fresh air. You’ll count your blessings again when you walk out onto the deck and find your teenager curled up, asleep, holding a tablet or book. Or when you and your children practice soccer strategy on the deck preparing for upcoming tryouts at school. And again when extended family gathers for a family reunion. These are the moments that you cannot put a value on, as they are priceless.

Where Can I Get Tips for How to Design My Deck?

A great deck always starts with a fabulous deck design. Experienced deck contractors like Archadeck know there’s more to building a deck than just “building” it. When you’re ready to add that dream deck to your home, your first challenge is finding a builder who understands the importance of getting the design right.

Why does the design matter so much? Deck design includes materials, and that may be the first aspect that comes to mind, but it’s about much more than materials. Deck design is also about size, placement, shape and blending with the existing design of your home’s architecture.kingston springs tn azek deck builders

Do-it-yourselfers are wise to look for tips when it comes to deck design. It would be one thing if a deck was just for looks. But when your family uses the deck, your safety rests on the structural integrity of the deck construction. That’s why you need to do your research, gather your ideas about how you want your deck to look, and call a professional. Because deck design is more than cosmetic.

We cannot overstate the value and importance of using a professional design and build firm enough when it comes to building your deck. No matter how much research you do, research cannot take the place of experience. So, yes, research deck design tips. Learning what you can about deck design will help you make decisions about your deck aesthetics. Then, trust a qualified, professional deck designer and deck builder to make your vision a reality. Using an experienced deck contractor will ensure your safety and your long-term satisfaction with your new deck addition.

Nashville Wooden Deck Builder

If you are looking to build a wood deck, we have a selection of wood options ranging from pressure treated pine to exotic IPE hardwoods. Thoughtful planning goes into each wood deck design, even down to small details such as having the grain go against traffic pattern to help reduce the chance of splinters on bare feet.gallatin TN deck with multi directional decking

Wooden decks do require regular maintenance with stain or sealant. Depending on your property, if your deck is exposed to full sun most of the day or is under the cover of a heavily wooded lot, you may need more or less maintenance. The versatility in finishes allows you to choose different stain colors each time to make your deck look brand new.

Nashville Low Maintenance Deck Builder

wood deck with detailing​Low-maintenance composite and PVC decks are becoming more and more popular among Nashville homeowners. Many of our customers don’t want to stain their deck every year and in fact, if you choose a low-maintenance material such as TimberTech, AZEK or Trex, you never have to! Although they can be a bit more costly up front, synthetic decking such as composite and PVC can greatly reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep your deck looking like new for 20 years or more.

low maintenance composite deck

Natural wood has met its match when compared to today’s composite decking. No other decking material requires as little maintenance, nor can natural wood promise the longevity they provide. Synthetic materials are so popular now that they currently account for about 15% of all decking material sold in this country.

composite deck nashville ​Along with their low maintenance and high aesthetic values, these materials come with product warranties in excess of 25 years in many cases. The composite and PVC materials we recommend at Archadeck of Nashville are resistant to fading, scratching, cupping, warping, and splitting. They are also impervious to insects such as termites and resist mold, mildew, and rot. All of these benefits equal a deck that will stay original form and whose beauty will last for many years to come. These are all elements that make choosing a composite deck a worthy choice for many homeowners.

To avoid compromising the characteristics of the material it is important that it be installed properly. Our knowledge and experience working with synthetics over the years can ensure a deck that not only meets but exceeds your expectations and all the specifications set forth by the material manufacturer.

Archadeck of Nashville Also Offers Redecking and Deck Resurfacing

In addition to a new deck custom design and build, we offer another option for homeowners wishing to breathe new life into their existing backyard deck.

Redecking, which is also referred to as deck resurfacing, is the process of renovating a deck by using the existing substructure and replacing the decking boards. Additionally, we often replace the railing and steps. Redecking can be a more cost effective option for homeowners if the “bones” of your existing deck are in good structural shape. Redecking can add tremendous aesthetic value and longevity to your space. Another benefit is that we can often complete a redeck within a shorter timeframe than a new deck build.

Redecking can be an option for both those whom have an existing wooden deck or an aging composite deck. Archadeck of Nashville has started to see more and more requests from those that have a deck built 1st generation composites.

Ultimately, the first step in determining if your existing deck is a good candidate for redecking is to have it evaluated by a reputable deck builder, such as Archadeck of Nashville. If the substructure (which is the base that the deck is built on) is in good shape, you may be able to save money and time by redecking instead of tearing down your old deck and starting from scratch.

The key areas Archadeck evaluates to access if your deck is a candidate for redecking include:

  • The Quality of the original substructure
  • How the structure has degraded or weathered over time
  • If your deck is adhering to any new building codes
  • Are the footings sagging or showing signs of wear?
  • Is the structure properly attached to the home and in good condition

These crucial areas will help us determine if your deck is a candidate and will include assessment of the quality and structural integrity of the original substructure as well as any accompaniment structures or the structure the deck is attached to. We will also want to evaluate how the deck has weathered over time. We will determine if any applicable building codes have changed since the deck was originally installed and whether or not the deck fits all the criteria required for redecking, we will make sure it complies with those new building codes as well.

The Nashville Deck as Part of an Outdoor Living Combination

A huge benefit of being able to live the outdoor lifestyle you desire is having options. This can mean having a protected outdoor living structure such as a screened porch or open porch in conjunction with your Nashville deck.

Having the freedom of an open-air space, such as a deck or patio, paired with a protected outdoor living structure allows you the freedom and protection to escape a summer shower, hungry mosquitoes or the heat of the August afternoon sun without having to retreat indoors.

Shade structures can also include pergolas. A pergola’s design can help block out heat and the sun’s harmful rays. How closely the upper portioned slats (purlins) are constructed will determine how much shade and sun protection the pergola will provide.

7 Ways Archadeck of Nashville Can Customize Your Deck

We customize every deck we design and build. It’s the natural result of our design process because we base each design on that client’s preferences.

1. Material for decking boards.

Wood or low-maintenance composite or synthetic decking? Pressure-treated pine, cedar, or exotic hardwood? Composite capped on 3 sides or 4? This is where a custom deck begins.

Multi-level deck

2. Color of decking boards.

With natural wood, you choose your stain color. With low-maintenance composites and synthetic decking (PVC), you select from a wide variety of available colors.


3. Decking board layout.

Don’t think deck boards can only run from left to right or top to bottom. Diagonal designs are among our most popular. Include a parting board through the middle or a border (picture frame) around the edge of your custom deck.

4. Deck size.

Most homeowners want a deck that’s sized in proportion to the home, but it’s your call.

Deck and firepit

5. Railing style.

A railing cap of wood, composite, synthetic, or aluminum? No rule says it has to be made of the same material as the boards. Choose pickets of aluminum, iron, wood, or glass. Choose glass panels instead of traditional pickets.

6. Multi-level deck design.

Part of the fun of having a large deck is designating areas for specific purposes – dining and lounging, for example. A multi-level deck can help define different areas.
