Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
As the nation’s housing market shows continued signs of a recovery, homeowners are feeling more confident making home improvements to increase their home’s potential resale value, but are still wary of expensive renovations. Deck Helmet a top-rated deck restoration and repair company located in Bethesda, Maryland reported a significant increase in calls over the past several months from customers interested in restoration and refinishing their older decks with a patent-pending system that eliminates yearly maintenance and permanently protects a deck for ten years. “This is a cost effective alternative to deck replacement which can easily cost homeowners $10,000 or more,” says Jason Apter, owner and President of Deck Helmet.
Sales of existing U.S. homes rose to their highest annual level in five years last year and registered their largest annual increase since 2004, according to the National Association of Realtors buoying hopes of a sustainable housing recovery. Home construction finished 2012 very strong, with a 12% rise in December. 780,000 new homes were started in 2012, a 28% increase from the year earlier. Remodeling activity is also showing signs of improvement, spurring owners to spruce up kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor spaces. “As home prices increase nationwide and buyers reenter the market, experienced real estate agents know that a rotting, cracking, warping, splitting unsafe deck is a turnoff to any prospective home buyer,” says Apter.
It’s also a matter of safety, according to the North American Deck and Railing Association, the number of deck failures and resulting injuries has been increasing at an alarming rate. Forty million decks in the United States are over twenty years old, so it's crucial for homeowners to check their decks and make necessary improvements to protect their family and guests.
Deck Helmet is currently offering a winter season special of 50% off labor and materials and a free, no-obligation estimate to encourage homeowners to learn more about the company’s unique 12-step process for a new and improved deck backed by an industry leading warranty that costs a fraction of deck replacement.
