Enhancing Your Home With a Custom Deck

Written by Will Valento

Adding a high-quality custom deck to your house is one of the best ways to simultaneously increase its aesthetic appeal and overall property value. Even more importantly, decks can facilitate a wide range of unique and incredibly fun activities for family members and guests alike. Decks can be built with a wide range of materials to accommodate the look and feel of your house, transforming it into a suburban dreamscape. However, due to the limitless design and layout options, it’s almost impossible to know which deck will work best for your house without talking to an expert.

Here at We Build the Fun Stuff, we believe that your home should be a limitless source of joy, relaxation and opportunities to create unforgettable memories with your friends and loved ones. That’s why we specialize in providing the best and most affordable home improvement services in the Twin Cities. Today, we’ll help you decide whether you should invest in a custom deck for your home by exploring some of the phenomenal benefits it can offer.

1. Decks Are Great for Social Activities

Decks are fantastic spaces for barbecues and outdoor family meals, especially when the weather is warm and beautiful. With the addition of a simple outdoor table, you and your family can forgo those bland and boring indoor meals in front of the television, basking in the calming sights and sounds of nature whenever you all sit down to eat instead. Of course, you’ll want to pick up a few pieces of comfy deck furniture for those special occasions when you just want to sit back with a refreshing drink, relax and chat as well. And if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can even use your deck to host small parties and social events with friends and neighbors, including birthday parties, cookouts and Fourth of July bashes. Enjoy nature from the comfort of your deck without worrying about all of those nasty ticks and bugs on the lawn.

2. Deck Additions Offer High ROI

At first glance, custom decks might seem expensive, but you have to bear in mind that this investment in your home will generate big returns if you ever decide to sell. Will Valento, a lead contractor and real estate expert in the Twin Cities market, agrees that adding a deck to your home is one of the most worthwhile of all home improvement projects. He also agrees that one of the main reasons why deck additions are such a smart purchase is because they allow you to expand your living space at a minimal cost per square foot. Put simply, decks increase the living area of your home without burning a hole in your pocket. And when prospective buyers see your spacious deck and all of the spare room that it provides, they’ll be willing to settle on a higher price.

Bear in mind that having your deck professionally built is the best way to ensure that it adds value to your home. As you know, when it comes to buyer perception, the true ROI is in the details. Having your deck professionally designed and built will guarantee that it pays dividends when the time comes to sell your home.

3. Decks Provide Additional Storage and Free Space

There’s nothing worse than being forced to haul your old grill or favorite lawn chairs up and down the basement steps due to lack of outside storage. Another huge perk of installing a custom deck to your home is that it gives you a large area to keep your gear and equipment safe and dry. There’s a mountain of technology that allows hooks and other gadgets to hold and store your equipment (including ladders, bikes and boats) beneath your new deck. Moreover, all of that additional space that your new deck adds has the potential to free up huge portions of the yard, creating opportunities for other fun additions to your home, including gardens, swimming pools, sheds, outdoor bars and more.
