Adding a Deck to Your Home is a Great Investment

Posted on November 16, 2018

Deck Installation in San Antonio

There are many ways to add value to your outdoor space. Whether you decide to invest in new landscaping, install a spa, or build a deck, any addition to your yard will be certain to increase your home's worth. While any of these options are a great choice, some can be better than others when it comes to their return on investment. In fact, various consumer value reports have indicated that a deck is one of the biggest valued home remodel projects of 2018. So if you are looking to add resale value to your home, or just want to spruce up your backyard, adding a deck is a great choice. 

You Get More For Less 

One of the best things about adding a deck to your home is that you get all the benefits of increased living space, without the cost of building an entire new room. Living in Texas, the warm climate almost year-round makes creating an exterior living space a great choice for any homeowner. You can also choose to make your deck covered, to increase its longevity and viability, further increasing your return on investment.

A deck is a more economical way of adding more space to your home, as it requires significantly less material - and time - to build than a full addition onto your home. Not having to build full walls can save you a great deal of money.

Choice of Material Matters

Most decks these days are made out of a composite material, although wooden decks are still a great construction choice. We are versed in many different types of decking material, which means our decks are truly customizable.

Both synthetic and wooden decks will offer a great return on investment, although a deck made from synthetic material - while more expensive initially - will ultimately provide more for you in the long run. Synthetic materials will last longer and will require significantly less maintenance over the years. Therefore, the value a deck can add to your home can depend on the type of material with which you choose to construct your deck.

When to Install a Deck

Another way to increase the value of a deck addition to your home is by choosing the right time of year to start this project. Contrary to what you may believe, installing a deck in cooler weather is actually a more cost-effective choice. Contractors are less busy during the fall and winter seasons, which means the overall cost of the project will be lower. Additionally, contractors tend to be freer during this time of year. This freedom of their schedule means that your deck project can be done on your schedule, decreasing the negative impact the construction can have on your home life. The lower the initial cost of the project, the greater the amount of added value your deck can provide.

Time to Get Started

There are many reasons to add a deck to your home, from increased living space, to a great visual anchor for your backyard. While it is always a great idea to have a deck as part of your home, recent studies have shown that the construction of a deck is one of the biggest values you can add. Now is the perfect time to start a decking project.
