​Suddenly Seeing Second Story Decks in Your Area?

second story decksIf you are looking for ways to improve your home’s value, you have probably done some research. There are tons of articles online about which projects bring the biggest return on an investment. And if you have read a bunch of them, you probably saw one thing over and over: decks. A new deck is one of the best additions you can make to your home. But it does not have to be on the first floor. Second story decks are becoming popular.

Why are second story decks gaining interest?

First and foremost, as mentioned, any new deck adds value to a home. If you are thinking about selling soon, this could raise the asking price significantly. Even if you have no plans to move, it is always a good idea to do things to improve your home’s value.

In addition to value, a deck creates a nice new living and entertaining area. In the Triangle area, we are lucky to have warm weather for a large portion of the year. This means we do not have to stay cooped up inside. A deck provides an excellent spot to enjoy the outdoors.

There are many reasons why second story decks are starting to pop up on houses in our area. Some people just do not have the space or layout for a ground floor deck. Others just want something different. Several homeowners like the idea of having a deck off their upstairs bedroom.
