Adding a Deck Can Add Value to Your Home

By Bessie Johns

Are you considering adding a deck to your home If so there are a few things you may want to consider.

First there is the value you will add to the property. The larger and more pleasant the deck the greater the value it will add.

Then there’s the cost of construction. In numerous towns a permit will be necessary, usually with engineering drawings. The expenses to meet these requirements can be quite high. Add in the expenses of materials and it can be a serious investment.

There are many reasons deck is a valuable addition. First it expands your living space so your folks can enjoy more time at home. Second the right deck adds style to your exterior so your house is more visually appealing. Finally it sometimes offers a solid return on your investment.

A new development in decking material provides the most return — composite decking. The ROI for composite decking is about 63 according to Reworking magazine.

Why select composite decking over wood The purchase cost is more than wood but in the end it may save you both time and money. Because of its low-maintenance and long life composite decking is certain to provide many years of family enjoyment. Purchasers know this benefit as well and it’s definitely a positive should you ever choose to sell your house.

Composite decking looks great too with any type of patio furniture. There are several colors and styles to choose from and it is easy to install. One of the features I like best is the invisible fastening system available on some brands. No more nail or screw heads to ruin the finish.

So when considering putting money into in your property it’s smart to review adding a composite deck at the beginning of your list. You’ll likely get years of enjoyment out of the investment and added value when it becomes time to sell.
