Return on Investment: 72.8 percent. A small 16 x 20-foot wood deck with a bench, planter and a few steps down to the yard creates a natural transition from indoor to outdoor spaces at an average cost of about $11,000. A longer-lasting composite deck will run you closer to $38,000, and it has a much smaller expected return: 57.7 percent. It's hard to get homebuyers to pay up for something they're not going to have to do (like sealing a deck).
