Decks are platforms or a porch built on your property to enhance outside living and to widen your living space.

According to Oxford languages, it is a structure or platform, typically made of lumber and unroofed, attached to a house or other building.

If you want to go clinical and technical, a deck is a flat surface capable of supporting weight, similar to a floor. 

Some would say that having a deck built on your property or house extends the living room space of your house. That is so true. Having a deck gives you the feeling of having a wider room for you to live and enjoy your house. It promotes good living and will improve wellness.

Decks add aesthetic value and beauty to the external look of any house. It also adds character and soul to a beautiful house. There is always something good to be said for a structure that rises above the ground to create another space to enjoy.

One of the best reasons for building a deck on your home is that it adds value to it. It is said that a deck adds more value to a house more than an extra bathroom or indoor living space. The square footage of a house also increases thereby increasing the value of the property.

If the above reasons are not enough for you to decide on having a deck built in your house or property then maybe, a deck is not for you but definitely, it will make you miss one of the main reasons for having a deck, the years of joy and enjoyment you get in having a deck in your home.
