Decks and Porches, by Tailor Decks

A Proud Tradition

If you’re a homeowner in the Athens and Northeast Georgia area, you’re probably familiar with the South’s rich history of outdoor living spaces, specifically decks and porches. Early last century, porches were an integral part of everyday Georgia life, whether you needed to get out from the stagnant and sweltering confines of the house or you wanted to visit the neighbors down the street and “set a spell”.

Lots of things have changed since then…technology, communication, diversity, etc, but the fundamentals from that era have not. We still value entertaining our friends and family as well as our privacy. Set against the Blue Ridge Mountains and enriched by a great climate and abundant resources, Northeast Georgia is the ideal backdrop for spectacular decks and porches…perhaps in the world.

An Unfinished Home

When building or purchasing a home, it’s not uncommon to envision adding to it at some point. After all, while the house serves a lot of purposes, an outdoor space complements and enhances. Additional home space also supports a financial position. Because of economic instability, fewer people today are looking to move to a larger dwelling…they are instead choosing to improve the home they live in. Supporting this decision is the latest real estate survey that shows outdoor living spaces holding 77% of their value.

These long-term real estate and financial developments are convincing homeowners to stay, improve, and finish the homes that they now own. Plus, impressing the Joneses next door can be pretty fun! :)
