Decks and other outdoor deck surfaces are one of the easiest ways to add usable living space to your home for a relatively low cost and time investment. By extending the square footage of living space, you are essentially adding an extra room to your house! If the added space is a raised deck high enough to accommodate people, you will now also have a covered living space underneath your new deck project (see picture to right). This is more cost-effective than other space creating home improvement projects like extending a living room or kitchen.
Installing an attractive outdoor living area with a premium long-lasting vinyl deck will add value to your home in terms of square footage, but also because great outdoor living space is a popular residential feature that home buyers are looking for. If you are ever planning on selling your home, a well-conceived Sun Deck, walk-out deck, Porch or balcony can easily add value to your property.
