The benefits of an attached deck

Decks and Wisconsin seem to go hand in hand as every home built in Wisconsin has a deck or a patio added into the building plans. Why? Because it makes sense and decks are not that expensive. The low cost of a deck versus the benefits is a no brainer. But let me say this before I go any further. Make the deck as big as you can! Don’t skimp on the size because you’re going to regret it down the road, I promise.Get the best staining and refinishing done by Deck Hero Richmond Hill.

Desks will add an entirely new place to host family and friends when they come over for the big game, a BBQ, or the holidays. Decks are also a place to store coolers right outside the sliding patio doors that will hold all the beer and soda instead of the fridge and it’s right there for as convenient as can be.

Adds value to your home

A beautiful deck will dramatically increase the value of your home and according to experts, you can easily recoup up to 75% of the cost of building the deck by the amount it raises the value of your home. You can’t say that when adding other rooms to your home. Although, I have never been one to add value to my house for that reason alone. If I wanted a deck or any added features to our home we do it because it will bring enjoyment to our lives and everything else is secondary.

Appealing to look at

Depending on how your deck is designed the appeal factor enhances the overall quality of your home. I personally have built several decks for family and friends and I can tell you from experience that the bigger the deck is the more appealing it is. I helped build a deck for my best friend and we wrapped the deck all the way along the back of the house. He was smart to do that because he then had all kinds of space for the grills and furniture and flowered pots with tons of room to spare. Two years later he added a pergola over the living area of the deck and it looks fantastic.

Quick & easy to build!

Decks are not hard to build. The hardest part is designing it and then ordering the materials. Most decks are rectangle or square and if you have a chop saw and hand saw, a level and some basic skills you can build a deck in a week. Sinking the posts in a hole and then adding cement can be done in one day. You come back the next day and you get to work. Attaching the deck to the house will require a building permit but for decks, you can do that over the phone or online.

If you are really creative there are websites where you can order deck plans for FREE that come complete with a parts list and materials list. That’s worth it right there in all the time you will save. YouTube has countless videos on how to build a deck as well if you want to do it yourself.

What what you get it worth building a deck

The costs of building a deck are considerably less expensive than other home additions. Even if you’re on a tight budget it’s still inexpensive. The average range of costs depending on the size of your deck and the materials used can range for $20 to $50 per square foot. Remember, the cost of what you’re getting and how long and often you will use the deck will far outweigh the cost. you will love it!
