Outdoor decking adds beauty and functionality to your home, office or business. It is a wonderful place to bring people together and create memories for years to come.
But did you know that decking solutions can also be a profitable long-term investment? According to the independent Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report, a combined effort by REALTOR and Remodeling Magazine, decks have had an average return on investment (ROI) of over 85 percent – the highest of any midrange home project!
According to Demesne.info, adding a deck to your home can be the most cost effective and rewarding way to increase the value of your property. The Orange Paper was also quick to add that a new deck can provide a high percentage of return. The reason is that decking provides extra living space, which is a real selling point when your house is on the market. Proper maintenance is critical to see that you receive the highest possible rate of return. In the wake of the recent housing market collapse, composite sun decks have proven to have an even better rate of return on investment than wooden decks. In fact, the 2010 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report showed that composite decking yields a rate of return on investment that is over 10 percent higher than its timber counterpart.
Home improvement expert, Danny Lipford, expands on the benefits of adding a deck to your home or office (particularly those made with composite material). His suggestion is to find a deck that not only looks good, but is also easy to maintain. Lipford also raises the point that although the setup costs can be slightly lower when choosing wood, composite decks require less maintenance, are more resistant to the elements (rotting or fading) and also provide more of an increase to your resale value.
Adding a deck to your home or business means adding to the time spent outdoors with those you love, as well as making a sound long-term investment.
