Looking to Boost the Value of Your Home? Add a Patio



A patio is an area outside of your home, typically paved and adjoined, that is used as a recreation spot. Patios are a great way to extend your living space and enjoy the outdoors; and according to the National Association of Realtors, a worthwhile investment.


A 2007 survey concluded that patios were among the top 10 features that homeowners want to see in a new house. More than half of the buyers that were surveyed said that they would be willing to pay a higher premium for a house that included a patio.


So, besides homeowner and buyer appeal, what are the reasons you’d want to construct a patio in your home’s backyard?


A Place to Unwind


There is no better place to relax with your family after a long day at work than your backyard patio. Your home is typically a place of solitude and comfort away from the worries of the outside world. Your patio represents everything that your home is to you, and unique features such as comfortable patio furniture and a fireplace can create a space of utmost luxury.


It is All Season


Weather can be unpredictable, but it is no match for a covered patio! It would be a pity to allow a little rain or a heat wave to prevent you from enjoying your yard. With a covered patio, you can enjoy the heat or light rain from a place of comfort and shade.


An Area for Entertainment


A custom patio is an excellent place to entertain guests. Whether you are planning a get-together with family and friends, or a small BBQ, a patio gives you a beautiful open outdoor area. Adding a patio addition onto your home also increases the space you the capacity you have to host guests.
