For most homeowners, updating any part of the home is always about how much value the update brings and the general aesthetics.
While most updates may add to the home’s beauty, not all of them will have a greater return on investment.
Home improvements such as updating the roof, kitchen remodel, and bathroom remodeling projects are some of the most known updates to have a greater return on investment.
But did you know a new deck can boost your home value by about 65%? We thought you should know.
So, when your deck is not in the best condition, this would be the time to prioritize it, especially if you plan to sell your home in the future.
But even if you don’t plan on selling, a new deck will crown the look of your backyard.
Critical considerations for a deck construction
It’s recommended that you consider the following factors to get the most out of your new deck construction
- The size of your deck
Remember, a deck is an extension of your “living space,” so let the design be of a reasonable size that will accommodate better outdoor living.
A larger deck would probably have a higher value, but don’t let the size be too big; that makes it feel more like a separate thing. An extension should seamlessly blend into the home.
Let your design be top-notch and practical. You should answer questions like, can it accommodate a good seating area? Is there space for a convenient outdoor kitchen etc.?
The bottom line is, the deck design should accommodate your needs.
- Type of materials
Quality over rules. Make sure to find some of the best-quality deck materials, such as composite and PVC decking. Also, ensure the decking is low maintenance.
For a long-lasting and better-looking deck, remember to apply a nice deck finish. If you love the feel of natural wood, deck staining is an option you can go with for your wood decking.
- Finally, accessibility
Let your deck be easily accessible even for kids by having steps on the back of your home. With all these considerations in place, you’re good to go.
