There are many things you can do with your home, but not all of them are financially beneficial. Making changes or adding features can cost a lot of money. Most homeowners weigh the price of the investment with how much they will get back if or when they decide to sell. Decks are a popular find, but will installing one do anything for your resale value?
The Cost of a New Deck
Just like anything else in life, prices vary drastically based on product and accessories. The composite decking itself starts as low as $2 a foot and can go all the way up to $5 a foot. John’s Lumber’s team is experienced to guide you on best choices based on your needs and budget.
