For the average American, a house is by far the most expensive purchase they’ll ever make in their lifetime. The choice of which home to purchase is an important one that carries with it a great deal of thought and consideration. In addition, any home improvements made will help add to the home’s value, which increases your equity and enhances your investment. But not all home improvements are created equal, however. Some improvements are considered to be better than others, based on their return on investment. Therefore, the decision about which home improvements to make also require proper thought and consideration.
Get a Great Return on Your Investment
Traditionally, kitchen renovations have always provided a great return on investment, as have master bathrooms. Roof, window, and exterior siding replacements also tend to recoup more, on average, than other home renovations and improvements. Speaking of the exterior of the home, another renovation that provides a great return on investment at resale is the addition of a professionally installed, high-quality deck.
Form, Function, and Good Financial Sense
Not only does a deck add value and equity to a home, but it also adds beauty and function to an otherwise bland backyard. (It’s also worth noting that decks aren’t just for the backyard, either. A small deck in the front of the house is not only a warm and welcoming addition, but it’s also great for curb appeal, too!) Aside from the financial benefits, a deck also provides the extra, functional space that many homeowners are looking for to help them move beyond their small, undersized living space indoors that simply can’t be extended.
The Sky’s the Limit
When it comes to deck plans, there is simply no shortage of wonderful ideas to fit every space and budget. From a basic flat deck that simply gives you and your family some extra space to cook out, dine, lounge, sunbathe and entertain, to a terraced, multi-level deck that incorporates a sheltered entertainment area, complete with TV, sound system, lighting, and outdoor bar with a seating area, a professional deck contractor can plan, design, and build the deck of your dreams.
Trust a Deck Professional
When you decide to begin the deck planning process, it’s important to find a trusted deck contractor who has not only the experience and the attention to detail required to build a quality deck that will last you a lifetime, but the ability to work with you throughout the entire process to ensure that your expectations are sufficiently met. At Atlanta Porch & Patio, we take the consultative approach to building your deck. Beyond just size and location, we want to know how you intend to use the deck, what styles you like, and what additional features you’re looking for, while maximizing your available budget.
