A patio is an appealing home addition that helps you make the most of your backyard space for, say, outdoor dining or entertaining guests. Appraisal expert and president of the Appraisal Institute Leslie Sellers notes that patios that increase in value are those that have been part of the home since it was built. On a lighter note, Sellers states that upgrading or adding a patio that complements the proportion of your home can give a bigger ROI.
According to the 2014 “Cost vs. Value” Report for Phoenix, a patio or deck addition made of wood for a midrange project offers 75.3% returns and 70.7% for composite material. For an upscale project, a deck made from composite material offers 69.1% returns.
Moreover, adding patio covers in Phoenix for a complete project can enhance your home’s beauty and increase its value. Doing so can bring a more definite recouped cost. Covers should match both the patio and your home’s architectural style. Consider its material, design, and construction. This is necessary to create a certain balance and ambiance that will attract Realtors and raise your home value.
You may choose a solid patio cover that serves as an extension of your roofline for your outdoor living space or even Elitewood lattice in Phoenix if you want partial shade. A variety of covers offering protection, durability, and an aesthetically appealing look are available:
