In the UK, a well-designed and fitted deck can add up to 10% value to your home.
There are many benefits to installing a deck onto your property, as it extends a buyer’s perception of the amount of usable living space.
Decks aren’t only great for financial purposes, but they also offer an aesthetic appeal. Decking is an ideal, low-maintenance space where you can host, relax, and enjoy the environment around you to its fullest.
But what would be the point in installing a deck if it didn’t last? There are many different types of decking, each with their own advantages, but what decking material lasts the longest?
There are a lot of great reasons to install composite decking – it can bring the aesthetic of your home to a whole new level, not to mention providing you with a great outdoor space for hosting, relaxing, and spending time with your loved ones.
If you’re renovating your house to flip it, are looking to sell your home and want to increase its value, or are just curious, you may have found yourself wondering: will adding composite decking increase the value of my home?
Decking is a great way to revitalise your outdoor space and breathe fresh life into your garden. Composite decking is a diverse material choice, available in a wide variety of different colours and designs that emulate that aesthetic of traditional wood decking.
Composite decking is also a fantastic decking material due to its low-maintenance, cost-effective nature, and long lifespan.
Before you can begin the process of transforming your garden, you'll need to know how much decking to order. We've put together the following guide to help you purchase the right number of boards.
