The Benefits of Adding a Deck To Your House

For those looking to upgrade their home, there are a number of ways to make it more functional year-round. Adding a beautiful outdoor deck is one of the most popular additions, working to provide a great place for hosting events with friends and spending family time outside. There are a number of great benefits associated with adding a new deck.


A place to host

Whether throwing a birthday party or having a summer BBQ, a deck provides additional space. It will work as a great place to host guests for a dinner party or even to have an extra place to lounge and relax during the warmer months.


Increases home value

Perhaps one of the best benefits of a deck is how it naturally increases the home’s value. According to experts, you can easily recoup up to 72 percent of the cost of building the deck by the amount it will raise the overall property value of your house. This exceeds what can be recouped from other home additions, including adding a living room, sunroom, or even an extra bathroom.

Aesthetic appeal

Adding a deck adds a high amount of design to any home, making it more visually appealing and enhancing the home’s overall quality. It can easily add dimension to any yard for an attractive property that stands out. You can stain the wood of the deck to fit into the color scheme of your shutters and the design of your house to make it look natural and appealing.


Extra space

Adding a deck to your property will provide extra room to store a barbecue, patio furniture, and even potted plants. If you don’t have space in your garage, you could even store your bike. A deck is a space that is easy to furnish and will free up the yard for other interests and activities.

    I find it interesting that you said that adding a deck to a house will help a homeowner get 72% of the cost of having it built back since it raises its overall value in the process. When you said that, it gave me an idea to find a contractor to have one built for my sister’s pool. That way, she can earn more money to sell her vacation home before this year ends so that she can move to a bigger home for her family next year.
