Are Decks a Good Investment?

Are Decks a Good Investment?

July 28, 2017

From early Spring to late Fall, especially in western Pennsylvania, a love for the outdoors can be enjoyed right from the comforts of your own home. Deck additions are a great outdoor enhancement to any home.  For many, it is a great alternative to indoor entertaining, but to others it is an oasis of serenity in a busy world of technology and electronics.  No matter your preference, you may still question —will adding a deck be a good investment for my home?

According to Consumer Reports, adding an outdoor feature to your living space can potentially boost your home’s value by up to five percent.  Additionally, in Remodeling Magazine’s 2016 cost vs. value report, a midrange deck addition (wood or composite) in the Mid-Atlantic States reportedly would recoup 60-72% of its cost.  Keeping in mind, the value and ROI is ultimately dependent on the size of the addition, materials used, construction and location of your home.
