The short answer is YES. A deck, porch, patio or similar structure can add value to your home when it is appraised and increase your resale value. Having recently upgraded things like gutters can be a selling point when it comes to home inspections as well. If in the future you choose to rent your home you may be able to ask a higher rental price if you have an outdoor area that tenants can enjoy. Making small improvements to the outside of your home can also boost your home’s curb appeal and make it stand out from other homes in the area making it easier to sell.
