With summer now a memory and the kids back in school, hopefully today is a calmer time for many of us. We finally have a chance to catch our collective breath and check a few of the boxes we’ve been anticipating completing for some time.
If a home improvement that allows you the more livable square footage you’ve been longing for be on your list, you’re in luck because now is the very best time of the year to move it outdoors and enjoy the extra space you’ve been missing on an Archadeck deck.
Boost The Value Of Your Home While Adding To The Aesthetic Appeal Of Your Backyard
Whether you choose a natural wood, pressure-treated lumber, or composite decking material, your deck can add a dramatic aesthetic appeal to the outside of your home.
If you are looking for an affordable way to increase the value of your home, a deck is a terrific option to do just that while providing countless hours of enjoyment.
Some experts claim that installing a deck can increase the value of your home by more than if you were to add another bathroom or living room. Also, decks are normally much more inexpensive to add to your home than those other home renovations.
The cost of installing a deck will largely depend on the size of the deck and material you use. However, most homeowners will recoup nearly 70% of the cost to build a deck when they sell their home. Keep in mind that the higher-quality materials tend to last longer and appeal to more homebuyers.
In fact, many homebuyers prefer homes with decks in the backyard, especially if the deck was professionally designed. Decks provide a clean, outdoor space that can particularly appeal to home buyers with families.
Decks Easily Increase Livable Square Footage
Another reason why Archadeck decks are so popular is that they can increase the square footage of your home. During the warmer months, a deck can essentially extend the usable space of your home for activities like eating, relaxing, and cooking on the grill.
When you add patio furniture, potted plants, and perennial flowers, decks also provide a place to enjoy nature on your property. Many of our custom decks have usable space underneath them, as well, by design. This area is a great convenient place to store outdoor equipment that may otherwise clutter your yard or garage or house additional outdoor living furniture when it’s not in use.
A New Deck Can Turn Your Home Into A Family Destination
A great place to host parties and family get-togethers, decks are also a great place to throw summer parties, outdoor barbeques, and family reunion get-togethers.
Guests can visit with each other while enjoying the beautiful breezes, fresh air, and sunshine that spring and summer bring.
And decks enable you to better utilize your backyard space, so you and your guests can have more places to relax, visit with one another, or play games.
When planning your deck design during your complimentary design consultation with Archadeck, you may want to add additional features to better accommodate your guest visits and entertaining, such as low voltage LED outdoor lighting, a grill or smoker, or a built-in kitchen. You may even consider adding an outdoor fireplace or firepit to add a beautiful glow and wafts of warmth for those chilly evenings.
