MORE AFFORDABLE, BETTER ROI
When it comes to building and remodeling, it pays to consider the financial return you realize in the event you sell your house. Wood can contribute to a return on investment on your remodel and there are some standout examples of where real wood paysoff.
Wood deck additions are one of the top remodeling projects for homeowner return on investment, boasting an average ROI of nearly 81 percent, higher than the ROI from a non-wood deck. That’s because wood decks are an affordable way to extend your living space and deliver on the increasingly popular inside/outside living concept.
Building with wood is fast and efficient, and can be undertaken year-round in almost any climate, which helps keep building costs down.
Furthermore, using wood in the construction of your home – in the framing and other structural applications – can save you time and money, when compared to brick, steel or concrete. Wood is much less expensive than alternative materials like steel, and costs less to install, as more contractors are familiar with wood – this also means you have more contractors from which to choose.
An added bonus? Wood-framed houses allow for easy modifications during and after construction because of their versatility and cost-effectiveness – something other materials can’t achieve.
Whether you’re building a new home, remodeling your existing interior, or building a backyard oasis, wood is an investment that will add value to your home for years to come.
