With Memorial Day right around the corner, you’ll most likely be enjoying a bar-b-que with family and friends and if you don’t currently have the space to host, consider adding a new deck to your home. Extending your living space outdoors is something that can be enjoyed year-round in Colorado, although summer is the ideal season to spend more time in your backyard. The professional contractors at KBC Remodeling Services in Longmont can cover every aspect of a deck addition for you to enjoy dining and lounging in fresh air.
If you’re considering taking on a deck addition as a DIY project, consider that most deck construction needs a permit and you will also need the skills of an electrician if adding lighting and/or a plumber if including an outdoor kitchen. For these reasons, and many more, it makes sense to hire a general contractor to ensure your new deck will be up to code- plus you can expect to recoup 80.5% of your investment when selling your home, according to the Cost vs. Value 2015 Report.
Besides guaranteeing that your deck is structurally solid, the professionals at KBC Remodeling Services of Longmont will deliver a finished space that looks great and fits your needs. The first stage of a deck addition is determining how you want to use the space and developing a plan to fulfill your needs that takes into account positioning, size, privacy and comfort. Our designers have countless ideas on how to maximize your extended living space from including an overhead structure to provide shade and shelter from a surprise drizzle to incorporating ambient lighting or a fireplace to enjoy your deck into the night.
Ideas to Consider with a Deck Addition
- Blending the style with your home’s architecture
- Overhead protection from the sun or rain with a retractable awning or gazebo
- Privacy with an arbor or latticework
- An outdoor entertainment system with hidden speakers and maybe even a TV
- A fire pit or water feature- possibly a hot tub
An average-sized deck addition only takes one or two weeks to build, so don’t let summer pass you by without a space to enjoy it- call KBC Remodeling Services today!
