Thor's Thoughts

Greetings!

The month of March is fast approaching, which means that spring is right around the corner. For us canines, spring means more time to play – and, of course, nap – in the fresh air and sunshine. One of my favorite places to nap is on a deck. A deck is a multifunctional space for humans to congregate for birthday parties and family dinners or simply to enjoy being outside. Here are a few of the benefits to building a deck or adding onto an existing one for you...and your beloved pet.

Outdoor entertaining: A deck is an optimal location for an outside gathering. Even when an event is hosted indoors, family and friends often migrate to the deck when the weather is nice. In this way, a deck provides an extension to your home’s interior so you can accommodate more guests.

Extends living space: A deck not only adds functionality, but it increases your home’s living space. There’s more room to relax, play, and enjoy family time. It also provides extra storage for outdoor items, like that grill you’ve had your eye on.

Curb Appeal: A nicely finished deck adds visual appeal to an otherwise plain yard. There’s a wide array of materials to choose from, such as composite and wood. These come in a variety of colors and stains to fit your taste and style. A deck is a smart way to enhance your home both practically and aesthetically.

Low Maintenance: Unlike indoor spaces, a deck doesn’t require mopping, waxing, and other time-consuming upkeep. With a quality weatherproofing stain, it should require little maintenance and last for years.

Increased Home Value: Depending on the size and quality, a professionally-built deck can increase the resale value of your home. 


One of the most important parts of the process is finding a trustworthy builder that values quality craftsmanship. VPC Builders specializes in deck projects in our Home Projects Division. If you’re interested in building, replacing, or adding onto your deck, please call our office at 828-295-0707, or email us at info@vpcbuilders.com.

To conclude, here is a little dog wisdom:
