It’s a tale as old as time in the home improvement and construction industry. A homeowner says, “This Summer I’m going to get a deck built.” And why not? According to a 2016 study done by the National Association of Realtors, adding a deck to your home will increase the value of your home. The study says that a new wood deck will recover 106 percent of its value during a home sale. Regardless of your home value, a deck is a great addition to any home. Grilling on the back deck is American as apple pie. The memories you’ll make with family and friends alone make it a worth while investment.
If you plan to be that homeowner that decides this will be the summer your going to have a deck, then the time is now. On the Bennett Contracting Blog in the past we’ve covered what you should think of when building a new deck. What we didn’t mention is when to start your plan.
Even though the Capitol Region has been hit with a few March snow storms, the truth of the matter is that now is a perfect time to start planning your new deck. While a deck is synonymous with the summer, late winter is when deck dreams are turned to reality. Many companies that offer deck building services get booked well in advance of the summer creating a back order of new deck jobs. Those who wait too long to begin their new deck process, might have to end up delaying it until NEXT Summer. While even one else is hosting killer cookouts, you’ll be missing out.
