If that warm summer breeze has you eager to enjoy the outdoors, why not build a deck that gives you plenty of space to play?
Online resources report an average cost of $10,000 for a 16x20 foot deck. That might seem a little pricey, but keep in mind that a deck not only enhances your enjoyment of your home, it can also add significant resale value. A modest wood deck addition can recoup up to 80% in home value.
In addition to providing a beautiful outdoor area for summer activities, a deck can also provide additional storage space for outdoor items. Need to free up some space in the garage? Your new deck is the perfect location for your BBQ, patio furniture, potted plants and more.
To keep costs down, opt for wood instead of composite and use very simple railing (if necessary).
