Decks are one of the best ways to improve the value of your home. If built and maintained well, a deck is a great addition, and something that many homebuyers look for when shopping. An extension of the home, a deck can be transformed into an "outdoor room" complete with seating or dining areas, lighting and plants.
Safety is one of the most important elements of a deck - when building or maintaining. Many states have deck railing codes, and certain areas may even require permits if constructing a deck more than 18 inches off the ground. Check with your municipal codes before you design or update a deck.
