The Benefits of having a Covered Deck

Covered decks have increased in popularity tenfold over the last several years. Here’s why…

A covered deck is a great addition to any home in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. These areas are known for their harsh winters and unpredictable weather, which can make it difficult to enjoy an uncovered deck. With a covered deck, however, homeowners can enjoy their outdoor space nearly year-round, regardless of the weather conditions.


One of the most significant benefits of a covered deck is that it provides protection from the elements. Rain, snow, and wind can all make it difficult to use an uncovered deck, but a covered deck allows homeowners to enjoy the outdoors even in inclement weather. This means that homeowners can spend more time outside, enjoying the fresh air and natural beauty of their surroundings without having to worry about getting wet or cold.

Another benefit of a covered deck is that it can increase the value of a home. A covered deck is a desirable feature for many buyers and can help to make a home more attractive to potential buyers. Additionally, a covered deck can also help to increase the amount of usable space in a home, which can make it more livable and functional for homeowners.


A covered deck also provides more privacy than an uncovered deck. With an uncovered deck, homeowners may feel exposed to the neighbors and passerby, but a covered deck provides more privacy and seclusion. This can be especially beneficial for homeowners who enjoy entertaining guests or relaxing in their outdoor space.


Covered decks are also low maintenance, unlike uncovered decks. They are less exposed to the elements, so they don’t require as much upkeep and maintenance. This saves homeowners time and money, and can be especially beneficial for homeowners who are busy or who have limited mobility. Now that we have discussed the benefits of having a covered outdoor space, there are a couple popular options for covering your deck. There are traditional wood covers that are not the wood covers of yesterday. 


A tigerwood ceiling can be simply stunning, adding beauty and function to your space. Motorized pergolas (or louvered roofs) are another options. These pergolas have increased greatly in popularity, and most of our projects today include them. Why? With just a touch of a remote you can open or close the space to any degree. Keeping the rain or scorching sun out means never having to cancel plans again! Brilliant! Want pergola on deck ideas?
