Three Reasons Why a Deck is a Good Investment
Posted November 23, 2020 to Before You Buy: Tips, Advice, Checklists.
Of all the improvements people can make to their homes, especially outdoors, we think that a backyard deck is probably one of the best. At Sierra Structures, we’ve been building outdoor structures for decades and know first-hand that adding a deck can make a huge impact on a home.
Here are three reasons why we think a deck is a good investment for homeowners in the Triangle area:
- Adds usable living space to a home: A well-planned and well-built deck adds a good amount of usable living space to a home. Many people use their decks as much as some interior rooms! A good deck becomes part of the family’s day-to-day life, rather than just a place to run out and grill a few times in the summer.
- Good return on investment: Not only do decks add usable living space to a home, it does so at a lower price per square foot than a full addition. This makes a deck a great return on investment.
- Raises property value: An attractive, welcoming backyard has always been coveted by buyers, and this is even truer in today’s world when we’re staying home more and more. A good backyard deck transforms a backyard into a destination. It gives it character and purpose while adding to the value of the home.
Home improvements typically fall into two categories: those that are primarily cosmetic (like marble countertops) or those that enhance the function of the home. A deck is one of the few home improvements that fits in both of those categories. It’s an improvement that increases property value and also makes life better for the homeowners.
