How does an outdoor deck affect resale of your home?

A: Most realtors will tell you that a quality deck gets you "good bang for your bucks." Decks are highly rated for return of investment. A deck adds so much extra area to your home at a relatively low price compared to the enclosed areas of your home. Also, a deck takes a chunk of wear and tear outdoors that would normally take place inside your home.


The value of a well designed and well built deck is not only in the deck itself but also in how the deck enhances the rest of the house. For example, it can be used to give a visual connection between the indoor space and the garden. Such a "connection" can be used to enhance the appeal of both spaces.
