3 Big Reasons to Add a Deck to Your Home

Have you ever looked at a neighbor’s deckside barbeque in the summer and wished your family had such a cool place to hang out? Everyone who lives here wants to make the most out of our short summers, and what better way to do that than with a gorgeous new deck?

When it comes to decks, though, it’s hard to go wrong. Their benefits and uses as an exterior renovation are plentiful. It’s difficult to imagine many drawbacks at all!

Why Decks Are a Great Fit for Many Homeowners

With a deck from the experts at Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors, your home is sure to be the envy of the neighborhood! Decks are a great investment for many homeowners because they:

  1. Expand your living area. Have you ever tried to sprawl out in the grass for a nice summer sunbathe? Even with a towel or a lawn chair underneath you, you’re likely to be assaulted by chiggers and mosquitoes. The bug population in Minnesota isn’t always easy to coexist with! If your house has a deck, though, you can kick back and enjoy our few-and-far-between hot days while keeping far away from irritating insects. For the few wayward ones that make their way away from your yard, consider investing in bug lamps or citronella candles.
  • Increase your home’s resale value. A home with a deck is much more appealing than that same home without one, and if you’re considering putting your house on the market, you can use this to your advantage. Enjoy your deck before you sell and enjoy the extra cash and increased interest you’ll receive from buyers.
  • Boost curb appeal. If your deck is visible from the streetside, it could be said that it boosts curb appeal. In other words, your home’s aesthetic appeal in relation to passersby. While this is similar to the “boosted social status” benefit we talked about above, it still remains distinctly separate. Even if the rest of the neighborhood doesn’t take much notice of your deck, it’s a matter of personal pride to own a gorgeous home, and a well-designed deck can certainly make that happen. If you’ve been feeling down about the way your home looks lately, a new deck can be just the metaphorical facelift it needs for you to take pride in it again.
