3 Reasons It’s Worth Adding a Deck to Your Michigan Home

After spending cold, dark months indoors, we all want to get outside in the sunshine and enjoy life. There’s no better way to soak up some of the sun’s rays than to add a custom-built deck to your Michigan home.  In fact, adding a deck is a smart investment.  Let’s look at three reasons it’s worth adding a deck onto your Michigan home.

  1. Decks Create Expanded Living Space
  2. Decks Provide Increased Functionality
  3. Decks Add to Your Home’s Value

1.  Adding a Deck Creates Expanded Living Space

Michigan winters keep us cooped up inside. Once the warmer days of spring arrive, the outdoors begins to call to us.  And a custom-built deck is an excellent way to naturally answer the call by expanding your living space into the great outdoors.

Decks add a trendy, modern living space to your home. Picture yourself having your morning coffee while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Or perhaps lounging under the stars as you unwind after a long day at work is more your style. Either way, decks allow you to escape from the stresses of life in the comfort of your own yard.

With a backyard deck, you’ll have an inviting place to relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Comfy seating, a fire pit, and potted plants can all add to the comforts of home right outside your door.

2.  Adding a Deck Allows for Increased Functionality

Decks are the new gathering spot: a place to entertain and socialize with family and friends. You can enjoy fresh air and serene surroundings. Add an outdoor grill, dining area, or portable bar and your custom deck becomes not only an extension of your living space, but also an extension of your lifestyle.

Whether hosting a backyard bash, a birthday barbecue, or an outdoor movie is your style, your deck will be the place everyone wants to be. And when you personalize your deck with comfortable pillows, string lighting, and inviting deck furniture, it truly becomes another living space for you, your family, and your guests.

3.  Adding a Deck Results In Higher Home Values

Still wondering if a deck is worth the cost? The experts agree that adding a deck to your home increases your home’s market value.

On average, a deck adds $10,000 to the resale value of your home. That adds up to a 70% return on your investment.

In addition, adding new landscaping plants around your deck will give your home the curb appeal buyers are looking for.
