3 Reasons To Add A Back Deck To Your Home

Having a deck outside your home is a great addition that can add a lot of fun times. You can have all sorts of gatherings and fun on a back deck. If you are somewhat of a handyman you can build one yourself or hire a professional to do it for you. Here are some of the many reasons that your family can benefit from having a back deck added to your home. 

Increases The Value Of Your Home

Anytime that you make the strides to add additional spaces to your home you are increasing the value of your home. Even if you are not planning on moving any time soon from that home, it is always a great idea to increase the value of your home. Outdoor living spaces are one of the top things that people can do to their homes that increase the value. 

In most cases, depending on the size and style of the deck that you build, homeowners see an increase in the value of their home when adding a deck. It is said you can get a recoup of 82% of the costs it took to build the deck. 

Increases Your Outdoor Fun

Having a back deck at your home opens up so many more opportunities for you to have fun times at your home. Whether it is just your guys hanging out in the evening, inviting family over, or having a get-together with friends. The opportunity to throw barbecues and birthday parties on your deck will provide everyone with loads of fun.

When you have get-togethers at your home, having a space that people can hang out will make the gathering that much more fun. One of the many benefits that you will see when having a gathering when you have outdoor space to do so is the mess is a lot easier to clean up. You no longer have to worry about when everyone leaves, having a huge mess inside to clean up.

Increases The Aesthetic Appearance Of Your Home

When you add features to the outside of your home, you are increasing the curb appeal of it. The back deck is obviously located in the back of your home, but people will get to see it when you invite them over. You can also decorate and give it a look all of your own. 

You can choose from many different stains and styles to make it match the exterior of your home. Adding your own special features to make it reflect your personality and interests. Such as fireplaces, cooking areas, and more. Many people find it a great area to grow container plants and herbs as well. 

There Is So Much To Choose From

The options and benefits don’t fend there. There are so many different things that you can do with a back deck. In most cases, they are a big expense to add to a home, but one that is well worth it. In the event that you sell your home, you should definitely see the added value that it gives.

Should I Repair or Rebuild my Deck?

Do you have a deck at home that you want to revamp? Trying to decide if it is worth fixing or if you should just rebuild it all together? Sometimes there is so much to be done, that it would make more sense to rebuild. Trying to make the right decision can be hard. Especially, when you are not familiar with all that goes into it. 

Hiring someone to come and look at the project might be a good idea. That way you have an opinion from a professional to give you your options. The staff at Cavalier Builders is trained and educated in making these helpful insights. 

Repairing Isn’t Always Cheaper

When you are making the decision to repair your deck you have a lot to consider. It may seem like the most cost effective thing is to just repair what needs fixed. That isn’t always the case though. These are just some of the questions you need to ask yourself:

  • How old is it? 
  • How much needs to be done? 
  • What shape are the boards in?
  • What is the cost of everything?
  • If hiring, what is the cost of labor?

When you are evaluating everything, the cost may add up pretty quickly. It may start growing to just as much as it would be to rebuild. At that point, you may want to consider rebuilding the whole thing. 

The age of the deck will play a big role in what you decide to do. Even though the things seem simple to fix, the things you have to replace due to being outdated can add up very fast. Asking a professional for some help to make the right decision will help ease your mind. 

Making The Decision To Rebuild My Deck

If you have evaluated your deck and decided that rebuilding it is the best option for you. Now, you need to think about if you are going with the same layout, or changing things up. Going with the same layout would be the easiest option.

Since you are starting over though, this gives you the opportunity to change a few things. It never fails that when you build something, you begin to think about all the things you would have done differently. The stuff you would have changed if you had the ability to.

Do some research and find a reputable builder. They will be able to help you with all of your questions. They will also give advice on the best way to accomplish your wishes. 

Helping The Aesthetics of Your Deck

To finish the look of your new deck in your yard, laying new grass and sod will make everything look fresh and new. All the work being done, has a good chance of messing up the grass. This way everything will look fresh and clean when you’re finished. Just make sure you have a level surface to put it down.

You can then go around and add some flowers or shrubs. During the spring, summer and fall. The outside areas of our home become where we love to hang out. By adding a little something pretty to look at, will make you enjoy it that much more.
