Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Does a deck increase home value?

A back deck may (or may not) increase your home’s value or attract potential buyers if you’re looking to sell. According to the Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features, a new wood deck with an estimated construction cost of $10,000 recovered $8,000 for the overall recovery of 80%. Still, 9% of realtors suggested that home sellers should add a new wood deck before putting their home on the market, and 4% said this project has helped closed deals. 

The impact of adding a new deck will likely depend on its material (wood, composite, etc.) and where you live. For example, if you live in an area where people rarely spend time outside because of the weather, it’s reasonable to predict that prospective home buyers might not rate a deck highly on their list of must-haves when looking for a new home.  

When in doubt, consult with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out if adding a new deck to your home is the right move to increase your home’s value. If it is, contact the best deck contractors near you to get free estimates and start planning your project.  

Reviews for Raleigh porch professionals
Gina L.
I am an interior designer and reached out to David McKeehan because of his great reviews. He has been working on various outdoor projects for a client of mine for well over 2 months and is currently building a 12' x 20' outbuilding with a 4' x 20' porch. I can't wait until it is finished with its carriage house shingles matching the residence. Within these past 2 months, he has repaired, primed, and restained 2 decks and 6 arched bridges; installed 90 new solar post caps; gave life to an old beat up gardening cabinet; power washed and twice seal coated a 1/4 mile paver walkway around the property and countless other tasks I am probably leaving out right now. In the course of my 25 year career, I have not met a person with more integrity than David. He really takes pride in his work and truly cares about the customer. He works very efficiently with no tolerance for shortcuts. The job is done the right way or not at all! I highly recommend him for his master carpentry skills. He has now become my "go to" guy for all work requested in his wheelhouse - which is broad. Definitely a 10 out of 10!
