Additions such as a deck, sunroom or screened in porch, or an outdoor kitchen can extend your living space and add interest to your outdoor living space. There are plenty of things to consider when you decide to add on to your home!
When adding on, it is important to determine the position of the new structure and how much exposure to the elements it would receive. You also want to ensure to consider the flow of traffic, and how the custom design fits into the space you are adding on.
Laying out the location, reviewing building codes, and determining how you want to use the space should be reviewed in advance to optimize the living space. The color of the decking material or flooring is also key in having a darker appearance or a lighter wood for a more open space.
Thinking about maintenance can also help guide your decision in expanding your living space to the outdoors. Travertine flooring or decking, wood or composite will make a difference in maintenance and durability. Adding decking adds significant value to the home and adding a composite or durable flooring can increase the value long-term.
There are many composite decking boards that give the look and feel of natural timber and never requires painting or staining. Composite floorings are naturally weather resistant and have excellent durability. Trex flooring which is often used, is also environmentally friendly, unaffected by pool water and typically scratch resistant.
While it is more expensive than a wood deck initially, it holds its value long term.
