ProWood According to a recent report in US News and World Report, homeowners who add a wooden deck to their properties recoup on average nearly 81% of the project’s cost when they sell the home. 

Celia Kuperszmid Lehrman, deputy home editor at Consumer Reports, says the wooden deck’s appeal is linked to today’s more thrift-conscious consumers who are looking to save money by spending more time at home.
