A pergola can be a beautiful addition to your home as it effectively gives you more living space outdoors. Although it has great benefits for you and your family (i.e. the perfect place to catch the next Saints or LSU game), it’s important to ask what value is this adding to your home, and is it worth the investment?
Here are a few reasons why adding a pergola to your home will increase your property value:
- Location is important. If you’re living in a warmer climate, like Louisiana, it is guaranteed that outdoor home improvements get more use. This means buyers looking for homes are willing to spend more if you already have a pergola.
- Adding a pergola is one of the less expensive home additions. You can easily increase your property value and recoup that cost.
- The type of pergola you choose also plays a part in increasing value. A more durable material, such as cedar, will add more value, style and class to your home and outdoor space.
If you’re looking to add more living space to your home and increase your property value, look to Sequoia Outdoor Supply for your outdoor needs. With a variety of pergola kits, you can find or customize the structure that will get you outside and increase the value of your property. Like any other major home addition, you can finance the purchase and installation costs. Call (504) 837-3300 to speak with a Sequoia associate about financing your next project.
