5 Reasons a Deck Is a Great Investment

If you're a homeowner in the suburbs with kids, pets, and a big backyard, you want to make your space as fun and fulfilling as you can. Deck building may be one way to create value for your environment and add to your overall home equity.

A new backyard deck may find you envisioning summer barbeques, autumn nights, and winter fire pits. And you're not the only one either doing the dreaming; more Americans are making deck building part of their overall home improvements, with deck and patio construction growing by more than 1% annually between 2017 and 2022, according to IBISWorld.

The idea of deck building isn't as daunting as you might expect. Here are five reasons to invest in a deck for your home.

1. New Outdoor Activities

Maybe your backyard is a kids-only environment with toys and balls in the yard. Putting in a new deck gives the kids more than just a swing set for their activities. Maybe they can read, draw or play games on the deck. It will add a new dimension to your family's life.

2. More Living Space

When you add an outdoor deck, you'll increase your living space during suitable weather outside. Add a few chairs, a few lights, some plants, and other personal touches to give yourself another full room for the family.

3. More Parties With Friends

With a new backyard deck, you'll be able to enjoy more outdoor events that give your guests breathing room and a great summer vibe for parties. Set up chairs, tables, and more to spend more quality outdoor time with your family and friends.

4. Increase Home Value

Adding to your outdoor living area offers a high rate of return for your home's value. Whatever investment you make in deck building will definitely add curb appeal if you ever choose to sell your home.

5. Aesthetic Improvement

Building a backyard deck will bring you a higher aesthetic value to your living environment. It may change the way you look at your home's overall look. Maybe a refinishing of the house by adding a deck should be your next home improvement project.

It's clear that if you have the time, energy, and available money to invest in deck building, then it's a very smart investment for your healthy home lifestyle. If you're looking for an expert deck building company, choose Safegaurd Fence & Deck!

    • This company installed a deck and then came back to stain it. The price was unbelievable in the work was immaculate. I pretty much hate everything. Five stars would not even be enough for this company.
