Whether you want to put your house on the market or you just want to make some improvements, you would probably want to increase your home value. Adding a deck to your house not only would be a good investment, paying for itself in time, but it will make your home an enjoyable place to live.
The main reason to add a deck is to have some privacy and a place to spend some quality time with your friends and family at home. Considering that, it may seem more a personal choice than a necessity. But let’s take a look at the numbers. For example, by adding a new wood deck, you could spend around $9,450. But on the market, if you want to sell it, the value this deck adds to your house could be even $10,000. This means that a recently added wood deck will recover 106 % of its value.
Recent studies have shown that any renovation projects that you have for your home can recover up to 80% of its cost, but for decks, investments recovering can be recovered 100%, depending on the size and materials. But, besides this financial reason, a deck will increase your home’s value because it provides better functionality.
