Five Reasons to Consider Custom Decks for Your Backyard

- May 29, 2014

Nothing enhances a home’s beauty, livability, and curb appeal like custom decks. And the best way to get the deck of your dreams is to work with a highly capable, experienced builder like American Fence & Deck. We have the tools and training to do the job right, all for a cost that fits within your budget.

Here are five reasons why custom decks are a great choice for your home:

  1. They greatly extend your usable space.       This is especially true in areas with a mild climate like San Antonio, where it’s possible to enjoy outdoor activities most of the year. A deck allows you to entertain guests, have family cookouts, or just relax with a good book and a refreshing beverage. Having a functional, attractive deck is a great way to combine the best of the inside and outside of your home.
  2. They act as a transition point between interior and exterior spaces. It’s easy to get used to walking in the dirt or over your lawn to get to your house, garage, or shed, but installing a deck can make transition areas cleaner, safer, and more beautiful.
  3. They add to your home’s appearance and its retail value. Decks are among the most common features that potential home buyers look for.       When you can advertise a custom deck among your home’s selling points, you’re likely to generate more interest and more offers for your home.
  4. Today’s decks stay beautiful and hold up to the elements better than those made just a few years ago. Whether you choose one made of pressure-treated lumber or modern composite materials, you’ll be making a long-term investment that will pay for itself over and over for many years to come.
  5. Custom decks can be built with features like intricate patterns, specialized railings, and even planting boxes or open areas for trees to grow through. These effects can make your deck seem more like your own private nature park and can help you express your own personal style.

With all the benefits that come from having your own custom deck, why wait any longer? Call American Fence & Deck today to get the ball rolling. We look forward to meeting you.
