Decks & Home Value

Summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors, but also to get things done while it’s nice outside! We all enjoy our homes while it’s nice out, and now is a great time to think of your house as an investment. The Northern Virginia housing market can be finicky, and installing a deck raises the value of your home, and helps protect that value while preserving your investment. According to Money Crashers, a Deck Addition, “adding a deck increases the value of your home. Outdoor living spaces have become more desirable, especially since more people stay home for vacation… HGTV claims that homeowners recoup 65%-90% of their investment by adding a deck.”

Remember that while doing the construction yourself will save you a chunk of change, deck building is very difficult and technical, not to mention the safety hazard of a poor job. It’s important to vet potential contractors too, you always want to hire companies with a solid track record. Deck and porch building in Northern Virginia should be trusted to experienced builders, and the professionals at Builders Fence Co have been creating custom decks on budget and on time for years.
