Adding an outdoor deck to a house can make a big impact on a backyard. Decks add functional outdoor space and give you a perfect place to enjoy summer days and evenings grilling and spending time with family and friends. If you’re looking to either build a deck or upgrade an existing deck, there are ways to make that happen within a variety of budgets.
Building a deck is less expensive than many other home renovations, but can still add up in cost. UglyDeck.com has ways for customers to save money while still getting a quality deck that looks great and will last for years to come!
- If you have an existing deck but are considering a deck replacement, you can save on costs by using the existing frame and footings. As long as it passes an inspection and is still structurally sound, keeping existing footings and framework can save you money on materials and labor.
- Another thing to consider is the long-term cost of materials. Composite decking material may cost more upfront than lumber, but choosing a maintenance free decking material may save money in the long run since you’ll never have to sand or have your painted with composite decking.
- Homeowners can also start small and add on to the deck later if they’re looking to get a new deck on a smaller budget. They can also save on labor costs by building a deck themselves. UglyDeck.com offers partial completion packages to help customers out.
