Spring may be a few months away but there’s no better time to start planning an exterior improvement project for your Merrimack Valley home. How about a brand new deck? From wood to composite, decks help you boost the usability of your outdoor space so you’re able to fully enjoy backyard pool parties, barbecues and you-time.
Here are the top reasons to add a deck to your home this spring.
1. New Decks Boost Property Value
According to Remodeling’s Cost vs Value report for 2022, a wooden deck has an ROI of 65 percent, while a composite deck has an ROI of 62 percent. Even if you’re not going to sell your home in the near future, you will still see a boost in your property value, confirming the smart investment you made over time.
Top decks that have been known to increase home value include PVC and composite decks, and they’re gaining in popularity each year. They cost a lot, but they also last a lot longer than wood decks and don’t have to be stained or painted every few years. If you’re looking for the least effort in terms of maintenance, composite is the way to go.
2. New Decks Give You More Entertaining Space
If it gives you great joy to entertain in the warmer months, a new deck will be a wonderful addition to your life. Now you don’t have to cram your grill on a tiny porch – with a brand new deck, you can expand the space with a larger grill, plenty of seating, tables, outdoor kitchen, hot tub and much more. It will be a breeze to host barbecues, pool parties and weekend gatherings, as you all enjoy the outdoors while minimizing the crowds and messes inside your home.
Even if you don’t entertain a lot but you love to relax outdoors with a nice cup of coffee and a good book every day, a deck can help you achieve the Zen you’re looking for. And if you have kids and teens, it gives them a space that’s separate from the rest of the house to meet up with friends in relative privacy.
3. New Decks Lend More Privacy
Want more privacy as you sip your tea in the morning, get some sun in the afternoon or just watch the wildlife? A new deck built off the back of the home gives you plenty of privacy because you no longer have to sit on your front porch in full view of neighbors and passers-by. From nosy neighbors to noisy road traffic, you can avoid it all with a new deck.
4. New Decks Increase Storage Space
Usually, decks feature vacant space underneath, giving you plenty of storage space for yard tools, kiddie pools, outdoor toys and extra patio furniture. You not only gain valuable storage areas, you can shield those belongings from the weather yet have optimal accessibility.
