A wooden patio or outdoor area attached to a house is commonly known as a deck. It has become an essential feature of many homes, especially those with a lot of backyard space and scenic views. Decks can be constructed using a variety of materials, but wood is a perennial favorite due to its natural beauty, durability, and affordability.
Decks have been around for a long time, and their popularity has only grown over the years. In the past, they were mostly found in suburban homes, but now they are a common feature in urban and rural areas as well. They’re an extension of the indoor living space, and as such, they provide a comfortable and relaxing place to entertain guests or spend time with family.
Decks come in many different shapes and sizes and can be built at different heights, depending on the homeowner’s preference. A typical deck is usually raised above the ground and attached to the house, but it can also be freestanding (also known as “floating”). A deck can be built on top of an existing patio or built as a new addition to the house.
In addition to providing an outdoor living space, decks also add value to a home. According to a study by the National Association of Home Builders, adding a deck to a house can increase its resale value by up to 76% of the cost of the project. This makes it a worthwhile investment for homeowners who are looking to increase the value of their property.
