There are many more findings like the ones above. Now that we’ve established that a wood deck can add real value to your home let’s take a look at some of the factors that affect value the most.
Factors That Affect the Value of a Deck
Area you live in – From broad aspects like the region or state right down to the neighborhood, the area that you live in will have a huge bearing on the value of a deck. If you live in a climate that is conducive to outdoor activity most of the year a deck can greatly increase the appeal of your home. Another value factor is the cost of construction in a region.
Construction – Of course, the construction, most notably the size and materials used, has a significant impact on the cost and value of the deck. DIY homeowners that build the deck themselves stand to get the biggest return on their investment. However, if you have to buy tools for the project or the deck is poorly constructed then that reduces the return you see.
Added features – Sometimes those little extras can add a lot to the value of a deck. But be careful not to over improve. If the main goal is to increase your property value, adding a ton of expensive bells and whistles will likely cost you more than what you would recoup in increased value. However, if you plan to be in your home and make use of the deck for a while then the added cost can be worth it.
More important than added value is the added enjoyment you’ll get out of a deck. Focus on building a deck that meets your needs and you’re sure to get your money’s worth.

Craig Niner with Supreme Deck explains when is the most opportune time to build your new deck and why.
Many of our Livonia Michigan homeowners ask me when is the best time to build a new deck? Many of you may think that the best time to build a deck is the spring, but the truth is, the best time to consider building a new deck may be in the winter. The best way to explain the reasoning behind a winter deck construction is what i would refer to as the “give and take” of the project. Give and take refers to the use of pressure treated wood during the winter months. The give refers to the woods expansion, and the take refers to the woods contraction that is caused by the effects of varying outdoor temperatures on the wood itself.
The first thing you have to remember when considering building any type of deck or other outdoor structure, whether the decking boards you choose are composite, PVC, vinyl, IPE or hardwoods the foundation of your structure will be constructed using pressure treated pine or another pressure treated wood. Wood curing is important to understand in relation to the wood’s natural tendency to “give and take”, and curing which occurs over the winter months offers many important benefits.
Pressure treated wood has a 50% moisture content when you initially build. This fresh lumber is sometimes referred to among builders as “green”. The winter has less humidity and thus the pressure treated wood will stabilize itself and dry more consistently and evenly when you build in the winter. On the other end of the spectrum a summer deck construction exposes the pressure treated wood to higher humidity conditions. In addition, when drying in the hot sun, pressure treated wood will undergo expansion and contraction which can cause cracking, warping and other damage to the wood itself. Due to the orientation of the sun during the winter months, the sun doesn’t beat down on your deck, and the pressure treated wood that holds the key to your project’s structural integrity will not undergo these negative effects.
Another benefit of building in winter is you will also experience less wait time and backlogs which are typical in spring and summer projects. Our typical waiting list is 8 weeks in the height of the season, during the winter you are likely going to cut that wait time in half. A winter project also causes less lifestyle interruption because homeowners typically spend less time outdoors and less time participating in outdoor activities during the colder months of the year. You will also experience less deterioration of the ground, and less turf damage during the winter months because of the dormancy period that Columbus landscapes experience through the cooler months.
Keep in mind that Supreme Deck can also build your outdoor structure combination in stages. Winter is the perfect time to start the first stage of your desired outdoor living project. If you are considering a deck and patio combination for example, you can take advantage of our staged building option and build the deck this winter and then we can add the patio later into the spring.
History of Livonia, Michigan
Livonia is a city in the northwest part of Wayne County in the U.S. state of Michigan. Livonia is a large suburb with an array of traditional neighborhoods (most of which were built in the 1950s and 1960s) connected to the metropolitan area by freeways. The population was 96,942 at the 2010 census, making it Michigan’s ninth largest municipality. The municipality is a part of Metro Detroit, and is located approximately 15 miles (24 km) northwest of downtown Detroit, and less than two miles (3 km) from the western city limits of Detroit (Redford Township lies between the two). In 2017 Livonia will be the home of its newest resident Amazon warehouse at Schoolcraft and Eckles.
During the days of the city being a township, many small communities have existed. One of these was Elmwood, initially known as McKinley’s Station. It was a stop on the Detroit, Lansing and Northern Railroad. It had a post office from 1858 until 1906. There was a post office in the township named Giltedge from 1899 until 1902.
Livonia was incorporated into a city on May 23, 1950, by vote of the citizens of the township. A significant motivation was to gain tax revenues from the DRC (Detroit Race Course), which was Michigan’s only thoroughbred horse race track; it closed in 1998. Livonia is was home to the first outdoor mall called Wonderland Mall. Livonia has 3 high schools Churchill, Stevenson and Franklin. In 2017 Craig Niner and Rob Schepis purchased the building of Shooters Gun range at 29500 Six Mile which will be the new home to Supreme Deck, Inc & The Stain Depot. Both want to give back to the city in which they grew up in. The building will be one of Trex’s largest showrooms for deck displays.
