5 Reasons Why Verandahs and Carports Add Value to Your Home

Home / Blog / 5 Reasons Why Verandahs and Carports Add Value to Your Home

If you’re thinking about selling your home or you just want to increase the value of your property, you might have considered some serious home improvements. Major renovations and extensions can seem daunting, but many people go ahead with them because they think it’s the best way to add value to their homes. The truth is, most homes don’t need a complete makeover, but more of a touch up, and a few added features can make a world of difference.

If you want practical and stylish renovation solutions that you can enjoy now and benefit from in the future, consider putting up a verandah or a carport. To find out how these simple additions can enhance your outdoor space and to get some inspiration for your renovations, here are 5 reasons why verandahs and carports add value to your home.

1. Carports Create Security

One of the best ways to increase the value of your home is to use it to protect your other assets. Carports are a safe and secure option for housing your vehicle and they’re usually cheaper to build than garages. When it comes to car insurance your carport will pay off in a big way, with a lockable carport sure to decrease your insurance premium. This simple innovation makes carports great for now and will be a big draw card when it comes time to sell.

2. Enhance Your Outdoor Entertainment

One of the most important things that home buyers are on the lookout for is an excellent outdoor space. A big backyard is fine but why not complement that with a beautiful verandah. In a matter of hours you could create the perfect location for that next family barbeque or those sleepy Sunday breakfasts. Bring the great outdoors right to your doorstep and build an outdoor entertainment area around a stylish yet practical verandah.

3. Extend Your Space in Every Way

When you build a verandah you’re not just creating a warm and inviting entertainment area, you’re increasing the size of your home. We don’t just mean that in a metaphorical way either. Professionally installed verandahs are officially considered an extension to your home and are included in the total square footage of your property. You can be sure that those numbers will help to increase that all important sale price.

4. De-Clutter Your Curb

First impressions really do count when it comes to selling your home so it’s important that it looks spectacular from every angle. Cleaning up the outside of your home is easy with a carport. Keep all those cars off your lawn and off your curb by storing them in a beautifully designed carport. A clean front yard and a spacious curb is sure to make for an inviting introduction to your home.

5. Compliment Your Existing Style

Whether it’s a verandah or a carport, outdoor extensions can seamlessly complement and conform to your existing architecture. If you choose a professional service, your carport or verandah can be designed and installed to match the colours and styles of your home. Not only will your new space come with a range of benefits, it will look like it’s always been there too.
