Will a Patio Increase my Home’s Value?

August 28, 2017

Tags: , , , ,

To answer simply, yes! A patio will increase your home’s value.

Whether you’re getting ready to put your house on the market or want to make an addition to your outdoor living space for enjoyment and entertainment purposes, getting a patio installed is a great idea for more reasons than one!

Patios add both beauty and functionality to the outside of your home and can be a great selling point when you go to put your house up for sale. Buyers tend to favor houses that already have a functional and attractive outdoor living space so they have one less item to add to their list of things to renovate or improve upon when they move in.

Let’s look at some inspirational ideas for building your new patio:

Built-In Seating

Want to skip the chore of having to pick out and purchase patio furniture? Have it built into the patio! Built-in seating around the edge(s) of your patio not only promotes a more visually pleasing layout but can open up the area by leaving space in the center.

Grilling Station

Outdoor entertaining isn’t as enjoyable without a place to grill. Cooking pads can be installed into your patio that make grilling easy and safe. Cabinets can be built along with the cooking pad for utensil and cookware storage.


Gardens are another neat addition that can be built into your patio during installation. Planters tall or short can be added as a border around the edges of your patio or placed in the center as a focal point or decoration piece.

Hot Tub

A great way to make sure you get more use out of your patio during the colder months is to put in a hot tub. Whether the kids are missing their summer pool days or you simply want a relaxing evening outdoors, a hot tub is an awesome addition. A patio is a great place to situate a hot tub, and a pergola or awning can be installed so that it can still be used in rain or snow.

A patio project that is done properly and professionally is one that will keep you, your family, and your guests comfortable and entertained for all year long.
