“These days, the latest trend is all about outdoor living,” says the founder of Angie’s List, Angie Hicks.

Hicks recommends ‘decks’ as the 3rd most valuable choice for a home improvement project since they retain 80% return-on-investment for a home.

A quality deck (or any other outdoor structure for that matter!) that’s designed and built by a terrific contractor becomes an economical way to expand your home’s livable space… inside to out.

In customizing a deck project, homeowners might also consider these questions:

Will your deck addition include a screened porch, gazebo, shade pergola, or other design elements such as ceiling, skirting, privacy wall, lighting, decorative rails, built-in seating or planters?

Do you prefer a traditional, elegant, country or contemporary look?

Is low maintenance decking material a priority or do you prefer the appeal of natural wood?

Should your deck design include the needs of children, pets, elderly family members?

The possibilities are limitless; thus, pricing totally depends on the size, scope and complexity of your deck project as well as the building materials used.
