Home remodeling adds value to your home, no doubt. When showing a home, most buyers will agree that a fresh look to the house is an attractive part of home buying. Not everyone has a well-cared-for backyard deck. So, when homeowners add a deck, the living space is instantly increased, and value is added.
Backyard decks have, in large part, completely replaced front porch lounging and social gathering of the past. While offering your backyard’s privacy, an outdoor deck can be designed to fit almost any area with any shape and elevation.
Decks can be made for small and intimate gatherings, or built large enough to be considered additional rooms in the home. They can fit built-in seating areas with room for a grill, sandbox areas for children, a place to play games, and more.
The long and short of it is both yes and no. Confused? Let’s break it down.
There is something to say about adding quality of life to financial decision making. After all, we make money to live, not live to make money. The value added by building a deck in your backyard is a financially sound way to significantly increase that quality of life.
Increasing the home’s functioning space provides a change of scenery and the chance to get outside daily. (weather permitting, of course) Privacy and fresh air have become increasingly more valuable commodities in the past few months.
Setting up a deck as an outdoor living area with plants, seating with comfy cushions, a table, and a grill area expands the square footage in the eyes of a home buyer. It is welcoming and conveys an excellent time to be had for all.
Chances are, once you build your backyard living room, you won’t want to leave it!
When adding a deck to the backyard, the builder will discuss your decking goals. The designer will give suggestions and likely draw up a plan. They will also need to look at the ground quality and elevation of the land where the deck is to be built. They will recommend techniques to get the best result from your deck design.
Once the deck design is complete and the supplies arrive, the construction can begin. It is wise to keep in mind, the posts cannot be set in the rain. A builder needs dry conditions to set the posts. After that, it is go time. Adjustments may need to be made here and there to level out the deck, but it should be smooth sailing.
You will be enjoying your backyard oasis in no time.
