Is a covered deck worth it?

If you are considering a covered deck for your home, there can be multiple value-added benefits!

Many of our clients build covered decks and porches. They often will cover at least a portion of their outdoor living space to add more
usability. Building a covered deck will add value to the myriad ways you can use your space. A covered deck, or deck with a roof, will
offer full weather protection, which will allow you many more hours outdoors each year.

A deck or covered deck is a great home investment.

Whether you choose to build a covered deck, open deck, or screened deck, any choice is a worthy investment. According to the most recent Cost vs. Value report, a deck addition is in the top 10 outdoor home upgrade investment choices you can make. Depending on where you live in the United States, and which type of deck you build, you can expect anywhere from a 63% to 81% return on your initial investment. Some clients prefer to cover their deck with a pergola, but there are downsides to choosing a pergola over a full roof design. Read about pergolas vs. roofs here.

What are additional benefits of covered decks?

Covering your outdoor living space with a roof can introduce a plethora of comfort amenities into the space. Roofs do not simply protect us from the weather outside, they can accommodate radiant heating, lighting, ceiling fans, and more! These amenities will offer a true multi-seasonal outdoor living addition. Screening your deck in will offer additional protection from insects, tree debris, and wildlife.
