As warmer weather is finally on the horizon, many homeowners have begun to think about their outdoor living spaces. Whether you have plans for gardening, a summer spent by the pool, or warm evenings spent outside enjoying the sunset, consider how the addition of a new deck or other outdoor recreation area could impact your yard.

The addition of a deck is one of our most sought-after – and favorite – services. A well-built deck creates a brand new outdoor room that families can enjoy for years to come. Decks can create an outdoor recreation space for grilling, eating, playing, or just relaxing with family and friends.
In addition, decks have one of the greatest returns on investment when it comes to adding value to your home. According to “Remodeling” magazine, many homeowners find that the addition of a deck can return up to 80.5% of their investment. This is because decks can increase living space at a minimal cost; according to the National Association of Homebuilders, room additions can cost upwards of $85 per square foot, whereas decks can cost as little as $35 per square foot.
