When potential buyers visit your home in winter, they might not be able to envision how green and lovely your backyard will look come spring. But they will be able to see with their own eyes the square footage that a deck adds to the home's living space.

Decks, patios, sunrooms and porches have always been popular with home buyers, but real estate agents say that too often those spaces are neglected or not used to their best advantage. Yet outdoor improvements like a deck can significantly enhance your home's value and appeal. In fact, at the time of resale, a deck will recoup, on average, about 73 percent of the original cost of building it, according to Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value report.

Wood deck railings can loosen and get wobbly over time, compromising the safety and beauty of your deck. Fixing this problem is usually a simple matter of tightening or replacing existing screws or bolts, or possibly adding new ones. If deck railings have deteriorated, it may be necessary to replace them. In fact, replacing an old worn railing with sturdy, decorative alternatives like Latitudes composite railing or Deckorators aluminum railing is an easy, high-impact way to upgrade the look and feel of your deck.

Why choose composite decking over wood? The upfront cost is more, but in the long run it could save you both time and money. Known to be low-maintenance and long lasting, composite decking is sure to provide season after season of family enjoyment. Buyers recognize this benefit as well, and it's definitely a positive should you ever decide to sell your home. Composite & Plastic Lumber decking

Common deck failures include a stair collapsing or a railing giving way. Of all the parts of a deck, "the most notoriously overlooked has been the ledger connection," says Glenn Mathewson, a former deck builder and technical adviser to NADRA and International Code Council-certified Master Code Professional. The ledger connection is the board that connects the deck to a home or property, which can rot away, causing the deck to completely collapse. But, adds Mathewson, "poor construction and a lack of standards for construction is a large contributor to the problem." Composite Decking Material
