Benefits of Building a Deck onto Your Home

Decks are one of the most popular features of a home today.  A deck can provide an inviting transition between the house and yard, and creates additional space for entertaining and relaxing.  A deck can also enhance the usability of your yard, especially if your house is situated on hill.

Because activities such as backyard barbequing and entertaining have so popular, a deck is considered a necessity by the majority of home buyers.  Adding a deck to your home can greatly enhance the resale value of your home by providing an extension of the living room, dining room or kitchen.  Decks can also add architectural interest and style to your home, helping to sell it more quickly.

Styles and Features of Decks

Decks come in a variety of styles from the very simple to multiple tiered designs.  Decks can also incorporate features such as hot tubs, arbors, planters, built-in seating, water features, or gazebos.

Access to your deck is very important.  Access from the house can be provided by sliding glass doors, French doors, or an existing door, and there should also be one or two points of access from your yard.  We can design your deck for you in such a way that enjoyment and accessibility is maximized.

Your Choice of Wood or Trex Composite Deck

Many homeowners are opting for decks built out of Trex composite decking materials (rather than pressure treated or wolmanized lumber) because it’s virtually maintenance free.  Trex Composite will never rot or splinter, eliminating the need for sanding, staining, and sealing your deck.  If you already have a deck that’s in need of repair, consider refacing your deck with Trex — it will probably be the last time you will ever need to repair it.  And because Trex is made of 50% recycled & reclaimed plastics and 50% reclaimed wood, Trex is environmentally friendly — trees are never cut down to make Trex products.
