I was browsing articles on outdoor living and came across an article in MSN‘s real estate section. It focused on the fact that adding a deck to to your home is one of the most cost effective ways to add value to your home.

In Remodeling Magazine’sCost vs. Value Report” for 2007, up to 85% can be recouped compared to 78% for a bathroom and 68% for a family room.

Professional installation for your outdoor living space by a reputable company, such as Archadeck, provides you with the added comfort of proper installation, guaranteed completion and a warranty on workmanship. Having an out space for entertaining friends and family, a deck for cookouts or porch for extending your outdoor usability, always adds value to your home financially and aesthetically.

So the real question is, if you are trying to improve your household- either for the long run or for resale– where do you spend your time at your home?
