Summer is idyllic here in Bend, OR, and when the weather warms up, you probably want to move all of your indoor activities outside. From brunch al fresco to reading in your favorite wicker chair, your backyard should be an extension of your home where you can soak up the sun and let loose. However, a comfy outdoor setup takes a bit of planning and setup. The perfect backyard starts with a well built, easy to maintain deck.
You may think that a new deck is out of your reach either financially or from a maintenance standpoint, but we are here to dispel those myths. So, let’s chat about why deck building is a great decision for your Oregon home.
Many people believe that they cannot afford to add or replace a deck, but decks are more affordable than you might think. From the start, you have two different materials to choose from; you can build a wood deck, which requires more maintenance, or select composite materials, that are pricier to build but will recoup your costs within five deck maintenance-free years. The total cost of your deck will vary depending on size and style but is overall less pricey than you may think. Our expert deck team can help you with all the details.
Deck building is one of the wisest investments you can make in your home. Studies show that upon home resale, homeowners make over 80% of their investment costs back when adding a deck. Not to mention the years of enjoyment they spent relaxing and grilling hamburgers on their investment before selling.
Deck maintenance can seem overwhelming if you are new to it, but the truth is that with a professional crew at your disposal, pristine deck building and repair is only a phone call away. Webfoot Painting offers a free annual inspection for every deck we install. Often, all that’s needed is a wash with our non toxic wood cleaners and a bit of deck staining for a finished, refined look.
If you are worried about the environmental impact of deck building, let’s talk about it. Many companies who supply decking materials are dedicated to eco-friendly practices such as promoting sustainable forestry or using only recycled materials. Composite decking, for example, is often made from locally sourced, recycled wood and recycled plastic bags that may have otherwise ended up in a landfill. Just think of how much more enjoyable your summer would be if you decide to invest in deck building or deck maintenance. It is never too late to expand your living space by adding a beautiful new deck for lounging and entertaining.
