When it comes to ways to add value to your home, a deck is a big selling feature. Adding a deck increases the value of your home. Outdoor spaces are desirable whether for a family seeking a comfortable area to gather and grill out, or professionals looking to entertain and relax under a crisp evening sky.
If you add a deck to your backyard, you will likely recoup a great deal of your investment, when it comes to appealing to potential homebuyers. Here are few deck tips to consider:
Cost is a consideration when it comes to building a deck. The price ranges from $1000-$10,000, depending on parameters and size. If you’re a DIY-er, you’re sure to cut the cost substantially by conducting the work yourself. If you decide a contractor is the way to go, be sure to get multiple quotes and seek referrals from trusted sources.
If you already have a deck, but it’s in need of repair and updating, never fear! You can breathe life into an old deck with a little hard work and a lot of TLC. Start by sanding the wood, then paint and cover it with a new stain. Add potted flowers and a freshly painted furniture set. These finishing touches are perfect for setting the stage for potential buyers.
If you have brick patio, a tip for sprucing it up is to roll a light coat of paint over the bricks to give them a more rustic appearance. Don’t be afraid to get creative, just keep in mind that bright colors can be more distracting than neutral shades.
