A home’s value is measured by its location, size, amenities, and design. Taking note of this and the fact that more people are spending time outdoors has led to the rise of homeowners remodeling their patios. Remodeling a patio is a great way to give your home a facelift while also adding value. So, how much does it cost to remodel a patio? Here’s a breakdown of the project possibilities.


How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Patio? 

It is essential to know your options when embarking on this new project. Below are some popular ways homeowners have given their patios an upgrade. 

A New Deck 

A deck can be designed and built from about $20,000-$100,000. The cost will depend on the size of the deck and the quality of materials used. For example, a composite deck typically costs more than a standard pressure-treated lumber deck. The cost will also depend on whether you need or want to install steps, a railing, a balcony, or a roof.

Professional Lighting 

A great way to make your patio stand out is to install LED lights. Today, many different kinds of LED lights are available, making it easy for you to find the perfect one for your patio. Recessed lighting on the ceiling is lower cost and a straightforward option, but you can install lights for the deck stairs or even around the balcony. You can even include a fan/light combo so your new patio has the option for lighting and a way to cool off on hot summer nights. The more electrical work involved, the higher the cost.

A Roof, Pergola, or Gazebo

One of the most popular ways to make your patio stand out is by adding a roof, pergola, or gazebo over your deck. These structures can be used for many purposes, like creating a shaded space and providing a more comfortable place to eat outside. They also offer the option to add lights, speakers, and fans. Designing and building a roof, pergola, or gazebo could add another $30,000-$65,000 to your project depending.

A Built-In Grill and Kitchen Space

One of the best ways to make your patio unique is by adding a barbecue grill and built-in kitchen space. A nice, well-maintained grill can be an excellent way to socialize and entertain. This can even include a built-in sink for easy access. Prices on this will vary, as there is a major spectrum of sizes and types. But you can expect this to add $20,000 or more for a built-in grill, countertop space, and fully functioning sink.
