A deck is one of the most coveted pieces of a house. It’s a key selling-point, as long as it’s in good shape because it extends the “living space” of your home in two to three seasons of the year.

In addition, a deck can provide a safe and comfortable spot to sit outside and enjoy your yard, as well as house amenities like an outdoor kitchen, a pergola, or even a hot tub.

A deck also adds visual interest and dimension to the outside of your house. It gives any home a finished look.
