Add a Pergola to Your Deck

Nebraska homeowners who have discovered the joy of relaxing and entertaining in their backyards are often considering the next enhancement they can add to their outdoor space. Adding a pergola to your deck or outdoor space comes with a lot of benefits. We’re known for installing elite custom decks in Omaha, but we can also build you a custom pergola. Let’s take a look at how a pergola can improve your outdoor living space.

Extend Your Space with A Pergola

If you already have a deck or patio, one of the reasons you probably added it was to extend your outdoor living space. If you’ve been enjoying it, you might have found that during particular weather extremes it becomes uncomfortable to use. A pergola allows you to use your deck no matter what the weather is doing. It protects you from harsh sun rays in the middle of Summer and can keep the snow away in Winter. You can even outfit a pergola with retractable shade covers for more shade when you want it, and less when you don’t.

Better Entertainment

A pergola can become the focal point for your outdoor living space. They can provide support for everything from chandeliers and ceiling fans to small speakers, strings of lights, and even fabric. Your only limit is your imagination. If you find yourself entertaining family and friends, or just enjoy spending time outdoors, a pergola is a great addition.

Custom Design Options

Your pergola will be custom built with cedar wood. Cedar is a good choice for pergolas because of its natural insect resistance. It’s a beautiful wood that looks great right from the sawmill. If you leave it untreated, it will turn to a soft gray, or you can seal it to hold its color.

Ready for Your Pergola?

If adding a pergola to your deck or patio sounds good then give us a call or stop by our showroom. We can show you a large portfolio of our completed pergolas and give you an idea about design options.

Investing in a New Deck adds Value to Your Life & Your Home

A new elite deck adds tons of value to your lifestyle.  Not only that, but investing in a new deck adds value to your home. Decks are typically in the top three for return on investment. Compared to an addition or attic, building a deck costs a lot less, but provides one of the top ROI’s of any remodel project. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, a homeowner can recoup an average return of 80% on a new deck. A family room addition averages only 69%. We’ve built plenty of custom decks in Omaha over the years, and have seen what it can do for resale value.

4 Factors That Impact Your Deck Return on Investment

Decking Material

Using high-quality composite materials create a deck that will pass the test of time. Composite materials add significant value because of their durability, aesthetics, and low maintenance requirements.

Deck Size

To get the greatest value, your deck should be big enough to use as a comfortable entertainment space. Most people want a deck to enjoy barbecuing and sharing relaxed outdoor time with family and friends. It should have enough space for a grill and a large table with chairs, and some storage space doesn’t hurt.

Easy Access

Making your deck easy to access helps improve its value. A deck that can be accessed from the first-floor kitchen or living room is a lot more impressive to people than a deck built off a master bedroom on the second floor. Kitchen access is desirable because it makes it easy to bring food and other items in and out when you’re entertaining family and guests.

Wow Factor

If your deck has an impressive design, with custom railing, and a strategic layout it’s going to be more fun for you and attractive to future potential buyers. The wow factor of a custom built deck can often be the tipping point that will influence someone to want to buy your home.  

How to Get the Best Value Out of Your Deck

Remember, when you’re budgeting for a deck make sure to factor in a recoup value of 70-80%. Take into consideration the size and value of your house pre-deck. Choose a deck design and size that makes sense for your home’s size and style.  Before you sign with any deck builder go to their showroom and see the materials in person. It’s one thing to see pictures online, but when you see it in person, you can touch it, and see how it looks in different lighting.

If you stop by our showroom, we can walk you through all of the best options that will fit your budget, and even show you how our design models work. You might not commit to a new deck, but you’ll leave with a lot of knowledge that will make you an informed buyer when you decide to move forward with your new deck construction.

Enhancing Custom Decks with Drainage Systems

Custom deck building is comprised of many components. From the materials, to the design to the aesthetics, our Omaha custom decking company builds decks that are durable and beautiful. Part of a deck’s durability and aesthetic appeal is related to deck drainage.

Deck drainage systems are ideal for raised decks for two main reasons. First, they deflect water by custom deck drainagecollecting it and driving it away from the home and foundation. Allowing air flow and ventilation is vital to the life of your home’s structure and of the deck. In addition, deck drainage systems will provide your Omaha home with more usable living space below the custom raised deck. It’s attractive and durable, and will help brighten the space below the deck – making it more usable and enjoyable.
