Archadeck of West County and St. Charles County in St. Louis, Missouri helps homeowners make improvements to their home’s outdoor living space with upgrades, remodeling or expansion.

And today, many homeowners are adding outdoor living structures such as a new deck, pergola, porch, screen enclosure or gazebo to their list of home improvements in order to increase their home’s value.

When determining a home’s value, an appraiser looks at factors such as lot size and square footage, age of the home, number of rooms, type, condition and quality of the home as well as comparable value of homes nearby.

Home improvements that add livable space, of any kind, increase the value of your home.  And adding to or improving your home’s outdoor living space is an affordable way to increase your home’s value.

And if you don’t have a yard that’s conducive to adding a deck, a pergola, patio enclosure, or screened porch are solid choices for improving your home’s character, living space and market value as well.

An established contractor, such as Archadeck, can help you choose the perfect outdoor structure for you and your family — from planning, to design, to construction.  We’ll be with you every step of the way. Read the rest of this entry »
