A Deck Can Add Value To Your Home

January 15th, 2015 Written By Carol Pawley

Wood Deck with Built In Furniture

Adding a deck to your home, especially in South Florida, is a worthwhile home improvement project. In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine, a wood deck addition project returns an average of about 80% of the original investment.

One of the reasons that a deck is such a good investment is because it increases living area at a minimal cost per square foot. Careful consideration should be given to where the deck is located. A vital factor to consider is how to access it from the house. The kitchen back door won’t do the job, a better solution is a French door or slider that gives primary access from a living room, dining room, or family room while being handy to the kitchen. If the doorway can also be positioned to offer an expansive view, all the better.

The experts recommend to make sure the deck neither swamps your yard, nor becomes lost in it. Your local codes may set standards for how much of your lot can be occupied by a deck, and how close a deck can be to your lot line. Check these limitations early in your planning with your city or county building department.

Work out how to preserve your privacy and also consider the path of the sun and the location of shade trees.
