Grow Usable “Living Space”
Recover Over 75% Of What You Spend,
And Add Value To Your Home With One Simple Addition…
Build A Deck.
If you don’t believe me, here’s what US NEWS MAGAZINE had to say about it…
“Building an outdoor living space — such as a deck — might not seem like a particularly appealing proposition for many homeowners. But as the housing market continues its downward slope and the economy slumps in a recession, building a deck can be a smart way for property owners to maintain or even improve their home's value. After all, it's less expensive than building an additional room but still enables homeowners to expand their living space. "It's safe to say that a deck is one of the more cost-effective things you can do," says Robert Markovich, home and yard editor for Consumer Reports.
"Decks are really a high-return item."
Remodeling Magazine's "Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report for 2007" found that more than 85% of the cost of building a wooden deck could be recouped during resale "When most people build a deck, it adds pretty much dollar-for-dollar [value] ," says Michael H. Evans, president of Evans Appraisal Service.
Comparing costs and benefits as it pertains to outdoor living situations, U.S. News & World Report consulted the manager of the western area of the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association, Paul Mackie. He was kind enough to explain why building a deck is a pretty smart idea in today’s economic climate:
“In 2007 a person building a deck would recoup about 85% of the cost during resale. Today, according to the 2013 Cost vs. Value report from Remodeling magazine, adding a deck will give you an average of about 77% return on your investment. That is phenomenal staying power and a testament as to the resale value of a deck addition over the life of a home.”
Your return is, of course, tied directly to the material used to construct your deck near Anoka. Decking material differs since some are better suited to the type of construction than others:
- Wood decking, despite looking great, carries addition cumulative costs in maintenance and usually deteriorates at an advanced rate.
- Composite decking, since it contains wood, shares a lot of the drawbacks of wood decking.
- Cellular PVC lasts the longest and helps your deck look better over a longer period of time, adding to the resale value despite how long it’s been around with a minimum of maintenance costs.
