Working on your deck is a good way to enhance the overall resale value of your home. If you already have an existing extension, sprucing it up will likely be easier than building a new one.
Some essential aspects to consider when working with a Porch Builder to upgrade this section of your home include:
Meeting Building Codes
If you applied a DIY approach to your deck, you might have missed a couple of regulatory standards. You can use any upgrade venture as an opportunity to ensure that your extension aligns with any rules and regulations that govern the erection of this structure. Any deck that is 30 inches or more above ground, for instance, should have a railing installed.
Replacing the Stairs with a Ramp
Replacing the decking stairs with a ramp is a great way to enhance safety levels. A ramp makes it easier for the elderly to make their way into the house, while it also lessens the risks of children tripping over the steps as they rush in and out of the house. It’s also a great way to make your home wheelchair accessible.
Installing Shade Sails
Installing sails is a simple way of providing shade without having to pay a small fortune to avoid the hot sun. These sails can also be easily folded back during the days you would like to enjoy the sunshine. In most cases, installing shade sails will take 10 to 20 minutes on average.
