If you own a home in the Atlanta area, a tasteful outdoor deck is an absolute necessity. Georgia is blessed with lovely weather nine months of the year, so having an attractive, fully functional deck allows you to simply step outside your door to enjoy nature. Whether your home lacks this kind of outdoor space, or your existing deck is too small or has deteriorated, a new deck addition offers some big benefits:
Awesome Outdoor Living Space
A new or revitalized deck extends your home’s living area out into the fresh air. You’ll have a multi-purpose space to use as a peaceful and relaxing retreat, an outdoor dining and entertainment area to enjoy with family and friends, or a secure play or hangout area for your children.
Enhanced Home Value
A custom-crafted deck not only adds to your enjoyment of your home, but according to Home Remodeling magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value report, it’s also a project that retains about 70 percent of its value if you decide to sell your home.
What may surprise you is that compared to other home upgrades, a deck adds more value relative to cost than a master suite or bathroom addition, or a major kitchen remodel. Plus, while the actual cost of your deck will depend on the size and design, and whether you use wood or maintenance-free composite materials, the outdoor room you add will cost far less than any other type of home addition.
Personalized Style and Safety
If your existing deck hasn’t aged well, it may not be a very appealing place to spend any time. You may also have safety concerns if it has deteriorated structurally. Skilled deck carpenters in Atlanta, like Echols’ Sebastian Ambrosinni, can transform your dilapidated deck into an aesthetically-pleasing space that meshes with your personal style and highlights your home’s architecture.
On one recent deck project, Sebastian and the Echols carpentry crew rebuilt a badly deteriorated deck using pressure treated wood, and incorporated wrought iron spindles to give the railing a distinctive modern look. They also set the footings in concrete, and installed a new header and bolts so the deck is securely attached to the home. The homeowner now has a handsome, tasteful outdoor living area to enjoy that’s also safe and structurally sound.
