Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - May• 19•07

HansondeckAccording to Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report, investment in a deck brings almost a total return on investment when you sell your home . . . if you live in the West, that is.

The return on investment for a deck is 91.1 percent for homes in the West, with the average cost of a deck stated at $16,297. That means the deck will add $14,846 to the selling price of the home. This percentage beats those in the South or Midwest, where a deck returns just 76.8 percent of investment upon resell.
