We talked in our previous blog posting about how a deck increases the value of a home. Specifically maintenance free decks have major advantages over wooden decks when it comes to future savings. But value isn’t solely monetary—a maintenance free deck can also add value to a home via the comfort and enjoyment you and your family will receive for as long as you live there.
All too often, spring and summer in a homeowner’s yard can not begin properly until a wooden deck has been cleaned, which usually involves power washing and sometimes staining. Additionally, because wooden decks are affected by weather and age, there may be additional maintenance to be performed, such as repairs, mold removal, replacing rotted boards, and other very costly renovations.
With a maintenance free deck, as well as deck railings and outdoor staircases constructed using composite decking materials, you don’t have to worry about constant upkeep. Instead, you can enjoy your deck all year round.
As addressed in our previous post, maintenance free decks add value to a home even though the initial cost of building a deck may be higher than that of a wooden deck. You will benefit from significant savings over the coming years, as well as the extra time you will have to enjoy your deck by not having to perform continual maintenance.
Additionally, with so many options for decking materials and deck designs to choose from, you can easily incorporate many features and elements into your deck that will further improve your luxury, comfort, and enjoyment. You can also add other stylistic elements to really give your deck design a “wow” factor, such as an outdoor spiral staircase.
