With the release of the 2010-2011 report from Remodeling Magazine and the National Association of Realtors, we know that decks rank third as the most cost-effective projects for homeowners.

This conclusion resulted from comparing values for 35 remodeling projects in 80 markets across the country.

Upscale remodeling projects have certainly been affected by the weak economy.  However, the 2010-2011 Remodeling vs Cost vs Value Report clearly shows that decks are an exterior project that “not only provide the most value but are among the least expensive improvements for a home”.

In considering the sale of your home, decks are an amenity that dramatically increase curb appeal and expand the square footage of your home as an outdoor living space.

A well designed and professionally built deck by a trusted deck contractor like Archadeck, can easily be the home feature to ‘close-the-sale’ especially when tied to a nice kitchen.

But more importantly, decks or other outdoor living spaces are a home addition that you will love and use, throughout the year.

Decks Rank #3.  Archadeck Ranks #1.  (Check-out the link to see exactly what we’re talking about!)
