New Home Decks

So there are some new home communities popping up in my area, I can't recall who the developers are, but I know it's one of the big nationwide builders, lennar, ryland, d.r. Horton or someone like that. The are all right in the 300-400k range and I am wondering, do the big fast production builders usually put decks on or is that something for the homeowner to add?

Re: New Home Decks

Around here they do, but that's because most are over walk out basements, nearly every house has a deck out here. The great thing is that most of these decks are so poorly done that they last 5-10 years.

Re: New Home Decks

I was curious since there is probably 15 floor plans to choose from in the development and every single one that has a deck is made differently or different material used. Probably 30% or so don't have decks on them and that made me curious. Thanks Robert for the input.
