How Decking Will Add Value To Your Home

The housing market is booming at the moment.

Decking Outdoor Area

With a backlog of people getting on the property ladder and remote working on the rise, many homeowners are looking to relocate now that they don’t need to rely on living a commutable distance from the office. 

If you are looking to sell your house at some point in the future, however distant, it helps to consider making improvements that will practically guarantee it gets snapped up straight away. And when it does, it sells at a price that suits you.

One simple way you can add value to your home is by enhancing your outdoor area. 

Understandably, an impressive outdoor area is a big selling point for any home and features on the top of many buyer’s wish lists. 

Therefore, decking is a great value-for-money home improvement that will inject value into your home, especially considering how easy to care for UPVC decking is.

Potential buyers will see durable, wear-resistant UPVC decking as a plus, rather than worrying about needing to take care of a traditional timber alternative, which requires much more maintenance. 

Lakeland Verandahs’ UPVC decking does not need to be repainted, resealed or stained and all products are colour stabilised to protect from the sun. 

But perhaps more importantly, potential buyers will be able to visualise themselves on the deck hosting parties and BBQs, relaxing with a book, or dining al fresco all summer long.

To prepare for house viewings, it helps if you stage your deck for outdoor living.

Style your space with outdoor furniture, add decorative pieces such as cushions and rugs and ensure the lighting is just right.

Potential buyers will then be able to see the potential of your outdoor space and be much more likely to put in an impressive offer.

Think of decking as a smart investment. Not only will you be able to enjoy a higher quality of life until you’re ready to sell, but once your house is on the market, you could find a bidding war breaks out.
