With a beautiful Texas spring on the horizon, there is no better way to capitalize on your outdoor space than by building a deck in your backyard.

...to add value to your home.
If you are looking for an affordable, fun way to add value to your home, a deck is the perfect solution. A well-maintained deck is a huge selling point in the housing market. Unlike many other home improvement projects (bathroom additions, room expansions, and more), a deck is almost universally-appreciated by home buyers. It is estimated that the return on investment with a deck is around 72%!
...to provide year-round fun!
As San Antonians, we are lucky to have beautiful weather for the majority of the year. We are in a unique position to be able to use our outdoor spaces throughout every season, which means you get a higher return on investment when you have a deck installed. Whether you're sipping sweet tea in early July or sitting around a fire pit with the family on Thanksgiving, in San Antonio, you can use your deck every month of the year!
...to add functionality to your outdoor space.
Wouldn't it be great if your kids could do their homework outside, or if you could enjoy your morning coffee in nature? When you install a deck, you add new opportunities for your family and friends to be productive outdoors. From dining, to paperwork, to simply relaxing, a deck gives your backyard functionality that it had lacked before!
...to add square footage.
As a designated living space, a deck adds valuable square footage to your home! A deck is more affordable than building an addition, and gives you many of the same benefits. Even more importantly, building a deck can be a great first step to a sunroom later on, if you feel the need to expand any further.
...to add a new look to your home.
If you are looking for an easy way to improve the appearance of your backyard, a deck is a great solution! A newly-installed deck means there is less yard to maintain, and in its place is a beautiful new wood living space. Additionally, building a deck allows you to add your own flair to your backyard space. Whether you are choosing high quality woods or incorporating new backyard decor, a deck is a great way to add new aesthetic touches to your home.
Regardless of the size or type of deck you are planning to install, adding this feature to your home is the perfect way to enhance your living space. Give Alamo Handyman a call when you are ready to start planning your deck!
