3 Reasons You Need to Remodel Your Deck This Summer

Get a Free Quote Today!

Summer is nearly upon us and you are probably looking forward to spending long days and nights outdoors. The deck is an extension of your home, the perfect place to unwind after work with wine in your hand, and your dog on your lap. As you spend more time on your deck, you may notice some deterioration. The wood is discolored, it’s a little unsturdy when you walk around in certain areas, or you may notice some rotting. A deck is just like other parts of your home, it needs maintenance and sometimes a replacement. First Out Roofing can do it all. 

Get More Use Out of Your Deck

If you’ve ever wanted a fireplace but never had the room for it inside your house, your deck is the perfect solution. Imagine sitting outdoors on a crisp winter evening, roasting a marshmallow while watching the snow fall right in front of you. Maybe you want to invite some friends over for a drink. You can have a bar built on your deck or a grill complete with kitchen countertops. In the hot Texas heat, wouldn’t it be great to have a swimming pool built right into your deck? These deck features are sure to make it a hotspot. First Out Roofing will provide the structure and space so all of these options can become a reality.

Wood is High Maintenance

The most classic decking style is wood. It is cost-effective, resilient, and durable. Wood is highly resilient to moisture, insects, and warping. However, even the best material gets worn down over time. Wooden decks can last from 10 to 30 years. After they have served their purpose, it is time for a new one. 

Discoloration and stains will appear over time. This can be a result of rot and decay caused by moisture exposure and mold. Your wooden deck will weaken and be exposed to greater threats, such as insect invasions. Providing maintenance checks and continuous care will elongate the endurance and appearance of your deck. 

Add Value to Your Home

A deck increases property value and builds equity for your home. Whether you\’re planning on staying there for 30 more years or planning to move out in 5 years, installing or remodeling your deck will increase the appeal of your home. The resale value of your deck can be up to 80% of recouped costs. However, the deck must be updated often in order to maintain a high resale value. First Out Roofing will keep your deck looking fresh and welcoming.
