Why Should You Add A Wooden Deck To Your Home

Ready to add a deck to your home? Adding a deck is a great investment for a variety of different reasons – and a properly-built wood deck can last for years and decades to come. But you may not be sure if installing a deck is right for you. So in this blog from JC Premier, we’ll discuss a few top reasons that you may want to consider adding a deck to your yard space!

1. Increase Your Home’s Value

First, a wood deck provides you with a great return on investment. Even a simple deck will provide a lot of value when it’s time to sell your home. It’s estimated that your deck will add about 70% of its project costs to the value of your home, including both the cost per square foot of material and labor. This also depends on the decking materials you choose, though. Natural wood has a higher ROI than other materials like composite decking.

2. Expand Your Living Space

Feeling like your family doesn’t have enough living spaces? Thanks to the great weather in Melbourne, a deck adds a lot of square footage to your home, which can be used practically all year round, especially if you opt to install a sunroom, screened-in-porch, or another such enclosed area. You and your family can enjoy better outdoor living and a more flexible living space.

3. Customise Your Deck Design & Add More Functionality

When you design and build a deck with the help of JC Premier, you can truly customise your design and add all of the functionality you want.

4. Wood Decks Have A Long Lifespan

A wood deck is an excellent long-term investment. Though it will take some upkeep, such as occasional cleaning and re-sealing, a wooden deck can easily last up to 20-30 years, with some treated wood decks boasting a lifespan of up to 40+ years with proper care. This makes it a great long-term investment.

5. Augment And Accent The Beauty Of Your Home And Yard

The right deck design doesn’t just add a useful, fun, and convenient outdoor living space to your home – but also works in harmony with your home to augment its style, decor, and design. It also emphasises and brings out the best of your yard or garden space, unifying your landscaping and your home to improve curb appeal and enhance the appearance of your home.
