Why Swindon Decking Will Improve Your Homes Value
There are many things you can do to improve the value of your home and decking is certainly one of the best. Some home improvements are not actually great value for money – okay, they may suit your own personal circumstances and make your life easier but when it comes to selling your home they won’t make a big difference to the asking price.
Decking is different. The addition of decking to your home can substantially increase the value and make it a much more sellable property.
When you decide that the time is right to sell your home and move on then it’s important that it stands head and shoulders above the competition. Let’s face it, every real estate agent has books teeming with properties for sale – and the addition of decking can very often tip the balance between your property being just like another 100 on the market in your area and the one which really stands out from the crowd. Lots of people love decking and it is one investment in your property which will pay you back with interest.
Home improvements don’t come cheap at the best of times and many people who use professional home improvement services may find that they’ve spent thousands of dollars whilst only adding hundreds to the value of their property – very often those dollars spent will not have made any improvement to the value of the property at all – but decking is different. If you fitted the decking yourself thus saving installation costs then you can stand to make an even bigger profit when it comes to selling your home.
Decking increases the value of your home for so many different reasons;
Decking increases the amount of outdoor living space at your home, okay, that might not be such a big deal in the winter time but during the summer time it’s a real bonus. Whenever you have people over they tend to congregate in the kitchen – which can be a real pain while you are doing your best to prepare a meal – decking provides extra outdoor living space where everyone can gather in comfort and you can even do lots of preparation and cooking on the decking.
Decking is a much more cost effective solution to lack of living space than building another room. Additional rooms incur additional costs – wiring, roofing, insulation, building – whereas adding decking to your home is a relatively easy and inexpensive way of increasing your living space. Many people include built in furniture, barbecues, running water and refrigerators on their decks, and if this wasn’t a part of the original plan it is reasonably easy and affordable to add on these improvements at a later stage.
The addition of a gazebo during the summer months can help to give your decking that little extra privacy factor and really improve the appearance of your back yard. There really is no mistake, if you want to improve the value of your home on a penny for penny basis then contact us (http://swindondecking.co.uk/) to add decking – halfway through the summer you’ll wonder how you ever managed to live without it.
