Oakland homeowners interested in expanding their home should seriously consider adding a deck. This simple expansion of your home is an investment that can have a lot of returns. The most obvious benefit of having a deck is one that’s immediate--it’s a great place to lounge around and enjoy the outdoors. A deck can also reap as much as 80% of the cost when it’s time to sell your home. If you’ve had it built in your backyard, or up at the second level overlooking the garden, it would be a nice venue for an outdoor party. While adding a deck to your home seems like simple carpentry work, it isn’t that easy. If you’ve got the skills, you can attempt to do one yourself, but it’s always recommended to hire a deck builder instead.
