A stamped concrete patio can make an eye-catching addition to any landscaping. While it holds true that landscaping does add value to your home, the question is how much can a stamped concrete patio add to your home's value?
What Are The Effects Of A Stamped Concrete Patio On Home Value?
It is said that doing any sort of upgrades, inside or outside, improves the value of a home. Typically, upgrades in places such as the kitchen will add nearly 90 percent to your homes value. Unfortunately, that is not the case with a stamped concrete patio. While landscaping as whole adds value to your home, it is not as much as other improvements to your home.
Stamped concrete patio adds more of a curb appeal then anything else. This is partly because concrete patios require ongoing maintenance. Harsh winters or overly humid and hot summers can cause them to crack. Complicated installation and subsequent repairs can be mean the value doesn't go up.
In most markets, a stamped concrete patio can add up 15 percent to a home's value, though this may be a high estimate. So, while a stamped concrete patio does not add much in value, it does add alot in curb appeal, making your home more attractive to potential buyers.
