Upgrading your Residential Deck

Offering the best craftsmanship and an elevated customer service in MA since 2019

A survey of construction (SOC) report conducted by the US census bureau found that 17.5% of the 1.1 million single-family homes built in 2021 have been built with a deck. This trend is expected to experience steady growth in the next few years, with Coherent Market Insights projecting the wooden deck market to experience a global compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.27% from 2022 to 2030. The residential sector has been identified as the fastest-growing market in this industry. The addition of these fixtures offers multiple benefits, including a great return on investment (ROI), enhanced curb appeal, and improved functionality. Modern designs and accessories have also transformed this extension from a simple seating area to a variety of possible applications. 

Some popular upgrades a Porch Builder can add to a deck when renovating this area include: 

Developing Designated Spaces 

There are multiple options when it comes to decking applications and individuals can set up multiple bespoke solutions with their extension. Individuals who would like to maintain the orthodox approach of a seating area with their design can have a variety of options such as couches, deck chairs, and long lawn options. One of the more popular options available with deck designations is bar sections, dinner settings, and barbeque spots. In most cases, the use implemented with the designation will determine its best position. Seating and tables, for instance, are best placed in the middle of the deck but to the side and away from the entrance. Grills should be placed on one side of the extension but not directly against the railing. Applying a designated space to the deck allows an individual to personalize this section to their particular needs and preferences. 

Enhancing Security 

Security has become a leading matter of concern with the continued rise of crime in a myriad of places. Decks represent an entryway through which invaders can gain access to one’s home or offer a potential target in itself as well. Improving the security details of your home can be crucial to the well-being of the household. Leaving this area unprotected can lead to the extension serving as cover for potential burglars keen to hide in the shadows. Having the Porch Builder install security lights with the extension is one of the simplest ways of enhancing security levels. People planning home invasions generally tend to avoid well-lit areas as their objective is to remain unseen. Installing security cameras around the structure is also recommended. Placing one or two warning signs notifying intruders of camera surveillance and an alarm network is something that not many people consider, but is a great deterrent against home invasions. 

Ambient Lighting 

Installing ambient light is a simple but effective way of influencing the atmosphere of this space. Soft mid-level lighting, for instance, can encourage a restful and welcoming environment that encourages individuals to relax. There are numerous options to choose from when it comes to lighting options, with smart alternatives becoming a popular option for individuals who would like a variety of solutions.
