Spring Project ideas: New Deck

Looking for more space outside? Or, do you have a deck already, but it’s showing signs of its age? Springtime is a great time to talk to deck builders about adding a new deck to your home. A few of the benefits of investing in a deck ar:

1. A high-quality deck increases the value of your home.

Many home buyers are anxious to have great spaces outdoors for entertaining. If you have a new and gorgeous deck, this can make your home more desirable if you ever decide to sell.

2. Decks are great places to entertain.

After a cold winter, it’s a relief to get outdoors to enjoy food and drink with friends. Adding a deck to your home means that you have a great open space to host get-togethers with friends.

3. You can increase your living space.

With the right furniture and accessories, your deck can function as an outdoor room, giving you new areas of your property to enjoy. Research shows that time spent outdoors is beneficial to our wellbeing. Start the day with a cup of coffee on the deck. Or, take a break between work and evening chores by reading a book out back.

4. Get back more of your backyard.

When you have a deck, items like your grill, potted plants and backyard furniture can all be corralled in this defined space. That leaves the rest of your yard for other types of play.

5. Add outdoor storage.

Depending on the design of your deck, you can gain space to store outdoor items underneath. Talk to our deck builders about what can be added to give yourself more room.

6. A deck is a quick project with a huge pay-off.

Home additions can take weeks or months to be finished. Adding a deck behind your home is economical and a project that can be completed fast. You can be enjoying your new space very quickly after making the decision to add one.

7. You get a great return on a small investment.

A new deck is an affordable project. You’ll find that you use this new space often, making the payback on your home improvement investment pay off.

Whether you are adding a new deck or replacing an old and worn one, this is one of the most rewarding outdoor projects for your home. Talk to Aspen Exterior today about what style and size deck suits your home, your budget and your outdoor entertaining needs.
