Building a Deck will bring value to your home.
When it comes to overall joy and happiness there is nothing better than the pride one receives when hard work pays off. In this case, the constructing of a brand new deck will not only bring joy to your life, but will also provide your home additional equity, and/or resale value.
Imagine this: you get home from a long days work, the couch and tv are not providing the comfort they used to anymore. So you walk out the back door. A beautiful deck is at your feet. You have comfortable adirondack chairs, an outdoor kitchen, a patio cover to watch family and friends have fun, a cool breeze blowing, and all the while you carry a sense of happiness and accomplishment because you’ve done the unthinkable. You’ve allowed all this to happen, your home is complete. You provided you and your family a gorgeous outdoor place to gather, escape, and have fun. However, there’s a problem. You don’t have any of this. If this is something you have imagined, let me provide you a better understanding of the value a deck will bring you and your home.
The average cost for a deck (lumber and labor included) is around $6,600, which is estimated as around 400 sq ft. However, you could still expect a return of around 80% to the resell value of the home. So, purchasing and constructing a $6,600 deck would theoretically only cost you around $1,500. Which doesn’t include the other added benefits of owning a deck, which include a fun and exciting living space, the endless additions to a deck; like an outdoor kitchen or patio, and another added benefit of bragging to your neighbor that you have a better outdoor space than they do.
So, if your plan is to provide your home with additional resale value, or you simply want a relaxing outdoor area to barbeque, relax, and enjoy the outdoors; a deck may be the perfect solution.
