A home with a deck is simply better than a house without one. You’d be hard-pressed to find an Australian who doesn’t enjoy a summer barbecue on a sunny deck. If you have the room, investing in a deck can be the perfect addition for your family and your home. Here are some reasons Aussie’s are installing decks and loving it.
1. A deck is versatile.
Whether it’s entertaining guests, enjoying some quality family time, hosting a festive event or a birthday, a deck is the perfect way to utilise your property’s space.
2. A quality deck will increase the value of your home.
Homebuyers are drawn to a great space where they can envision a future family setting within that home. Decks are aesthetically pleasing structures when built well with beautiful materials.
3. A deck is customisable.
A deck can be made your own. You can get creative with the design, shape, layout, timber and finish to match your style and needs. New features can be added to your deck in time, as your family needs grow and change.
4. A deck can be built fast.
Unlike the lengthy process of extending a property, a deck takes a fraction of the time and stress to design and construct. It’s one of the quickest ways to add space to your home by using the space that’s already there.
5. A deck is affordable.
The likelihood of any home addition or alteration going ahead inevitably comes down to cost. Decks are a fantastic way to create an impactful, usable home feature that won’t leave you financially fizzled. Even homeowners on a budget can find an inexpensive solution that will still add value to their homes and lives.
While a deck is a real possibility for Australian home improvers, there are some important considerations to create a great deck that will last.
The planning stage is super important to fully understand your lifestyle needs, design tastes, and budget. Plans can quickly pivot when costs are identified, and visions need to align from all members for a positive outcome.
Partnering with a trusted carpenter ensures an expert job, with superior attention to detail, delivering peace of mind that your investment will be worthwhile.
