John Schmidt, president of DJ Dalbec Homes, sees quite a few of these projects coming in when the warmer weather arrives.
“Decks and patios projects definitely become more popular in the spring and summer,” Dalbec said. “People start spending more time outdoors, and they focus a bit more on exterior needs than they do during other times of the year.
“In terms of summer upgrades, these are two of the best.”
Decks provide a place to relax, eat dinner, read books, entertain and more. They’re often raised off of the ground, while a patio can offer some of the same benefits as a deck, but is usually made from concrete or stone, and is closer to ground level. Patios are great for those who want to enjoy the outdoors and have access to the backyard.
“Either option can really add to your property and home value,” added Schmidt. “But many customers feel that the joy they get out of such an investment is worth the cost by itself.”
