Return On Your Investment On Your Deck - Deck Repair Deck Resurfacing in Somerset NJ Morris County

A high return on investment makes a deck addition a worthwhile home improvement project.

Adding a deck to your home is one of the most worthwhile of all home improvement projects.

One of the reasons that a deck is such a good investment is because it increases living area at a minimal cost per square foot. The national average for new construction costs of a two-story, 2,000-square-foot home is about $95 per square foot, according to the National Association of Home Builders. However, the construction costs for a wood deck are less than $35 per square foot and a composite deck less than $55.

The return on your deck investment will vary according to the region in which you live. In the North-East, where construction costs are generally higher than other parts of the country, decks are more expensive to build. However, the return on investment is also higher than other regions.

Each year, Remodeling magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report provides a fascinating look at the percentage of a home improvement project’s costs that are likely to be recouped at resale. The report finds that not all home remodeling jobs are created equal—you’ll probably get more of your investment back after building a wooden or composite deck, for example, than adding a sun room.

Deck additions are ranked #3 as the best return for the investment.

Homeowners who add a deck to their properties recoup on average nearly 85 percent of the project’s cost when they sell the home, according to the report. Celia Kuperszmid Lehrman, deputy home editor at Consumer Reports, says that the deck’s appeal is linked to today’s more thrift-conscious consumers, who are looking to save money by spending more time at home. “Since they are staying home they want to enjoy their exterior, they want to enjoy their outdoors,” Kuperszmid Lehrman says. “So [adding a deck] is one of those areas that can add value.” Another key benefit of building a deck is : “That’s not heated and cooled space, but it is an opportunity to make you feel like you have a lot more space in your home than you actually have.”

“Deck Guardian Team did a good and pleasant job to give us a professional service and a beautiful new deck, without replacing it. We love the color and the way it feels like. Highly recommended!”

Kathryn Barchi from Piscataway, NJ

“My husband and I had recently moved into a new home and quite quickly we learned of so many things that both us and the home inspector missed prior to the purchase; the deck being one huge item. We quite desperately wanted to use our deck and know that it was safe for us, our kids, our pups, and our guests, which in the original state, was definitely not the case. Deck Guardian to the rescue! The Deck Guardian team, from the free estimate to the point of project close, were quite wonderful to work with entirely. They even pointed out additional things we had missed with regards to the safety of our deck. Of course, best of all, the Deck Guardian team was able to work within our budget, while giving us back our deck with a new lease on life. Deck Guardian far exceeded our expectations and for that, my husband and I can not thank them enough!!!”
