Written by on

Are you considering a home exterior project this year? Do you want to make sure your design adds value to your home? As the 2022 housing market shapes up, many sellers are realizing that, if they intend to sell in a couple of years or more, adding elements to their curb appeal and overall home appeal will make a big difference in the eventual buyers' market. New house siding and a new or updated backyard deck are two projects that top the list in exterior home design.

Top real estate agents are seeing signs that the market is beginning to cool, meaning that making a change to your home in line with current architectural trends could benefit both you and your family and a future home sale. Here are some top trends to consider.


Rooftop Decks

Where you have a flat, supported roof, you may currently be letting valuable real estate be wasted. Rooftop decks are growing in popularity, especially if they have an exceptional view or are in an area with temperate times of year.

More reasons you might want to consider Eurotec is the aluminum profile that decreases the weight on the building structure, and the way it lets water and moisture escape from under your deck to preserve both your decking material and your roof surface.
