What Are the Benefits of Having a Deck?

You should consider having a deck for the following reasons:

Improved Property Value

A professionally done addition to your home such as a deck almost always improves the value of the property. Even if you plan to sell the house in the future, a deck can substantially boost the resale value depending on the quality.

Adding Functionality

Decks offer greater functionality to your home with various outdoor living benefits that are useful throughout the year. For instance, if you have a deck with a roof or awning, you can easily accomplish the feat of grilling food in the winter.

Increased Livable Space

Having a deck is also a great way to increase your home’s livable space. You will now have new places where you can play, work, enjoy time with the family, and even have more room for storing your outdoor belongings.

Improving Yard Aesthetics

Having a deck can also add to your yard’s aesthetic qualities too. The visual quality of a nicely finished deck has the potential to transform your plain-looking yard into a palatial one with just a bit of planning.

Low Maintenance

Unlike most rooms in your house, decks are fairly low maintenance and require minimal effort to keep looking great. You don’t need to constantly sweep or wash the deck. They also don’t require much upkeep, either. A decent weatherproofing stain is enough to last for years.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Fence?

If you are still unsure about whether or not to install a new fence, here are the benefits of having one:

Shelter

The elements have the potential to wreak havoc on your home and yard. However, having a privacy fence can protect your backyard and garden from the wind and provide shade from the sun.

Protection

The elements might present a real issue, but unwanted guests on your property are actually a far greater problem. If you have a fence installed, however, your home will be protected from both humans and animals entering your property without your permission.

Decoration

A properly maintained fence helps to add character to a home. For instance, you can stain or paint wooden fences any color thus adding a bit of style to your backyard. A fence can also improve the curb appeal of your home.

Noise

If you have noisy neighbors or there’s constant construction going on in your neighborhood, you can count on a privacy fence to help with that. It acts as a sound barrier that keeps unwanted noise out of the yard.

Maintenance

If you have a quality privacy fence, the maintenance required is minimal. For instance, if you have a wooden fence, all that’s needed to keep untreated wood safe from the elements is a few coats of varnish.
