The Best Outdoor Remodeling Projects for Spring: Decks
Winter can be long and hard, and this winter has been no exception. Like most homeowners, you’re probably looking forward to the day when you can stand in your backyard, cook a burger on the grill, and feel the sun shining on your face.
But is your deck ready?
No matter if your deck is in poor condition or if it’s non-existent, now is the time to start thinking about a remodel. The sooner you start working with your deck contractor in the Hudson Valley area, the sooner you can start planning your design, materials, timeline, and budget. The past couple of years have disrupted typical timelines, so early spring is the perfect time to start planning.
Why Should You Remodel or Build a New Deck?
You love spending time outdoors, having friends over for a barbecue, or just unwinding outside after a long day…then you need a deck. There are endless reasons to build a new deck or repair your existing deck, but here are some of the top reasons:
Improve Your Home’s Value
Likely the most important factor when considering investing in your outdoor living space, a new deck can drastically improve your home’s value. Some sources say that the Return On Investment (ROI) of a new deck is about 80.5%! Over the past couple of years, we’ve only seen this value continue to increase as homes with customized outdoor living spaces have grown in popularity.
At some point, everyone has thought about selling their home. Installing a deck could make your home more appealing to buyers on the market. This could enable you to sell your home faster and easier than you might expect (and for more).
We saw it happen in real time! Hosting moved outdoors the past couple of years.
You love to host! You’re going to love having a new deck (or a newly remodeled deck) for your spring and summer entertaining. Do you know why decks are great for entertaining?
- You’ll have a great space to grill out and dine outdoors.
- Your guests won’t ruin your lawn while they’re standing around in your backyard.
- Your guests will appreciate spending time outside without getting their feet dirty in the grass.
- You won’t have to keep your guests inside while you party.
- You’ll have less of a mess to worry about cleaning up inside.
Create a Space to Unwind
We all need a space to relax at the end of a long day of work. A deck is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy a nice glass of wine or adult beverage.
Create a relaxing oasis in your backyard by adding built-in benches where you can lounge to your deck. When choosing the right outdoor remodeler, your deck design and landscaping can work together to create your dream backyard. And choosing the right remodeler will also help you design your space to enjoy evenings after the sunset by factoring in outdoor lighting.
Eat Meals Outside
Make a moment of every day feel a little more like a vacation. Or better yet, a staycation.
With a deck, you can dine alfresco whenever you like (pending the weather, of course). It will give you the perfect place to host outdoor dinners, barbeques, and other gatherings. Switch it up and instead of eating in your dining room, move your dinner out to your new deck to take in the beauty of your backyard as you enjoy your meal.
