Any improvements, if done well and with good materials, can add value to your home.  There are lots of things to consider like your budget.  A lot of homeowners think composite decking will add much more value but all decking materials will weather and wear. There are many other home improvements that will add more value to your home than a new composite deck.

A composite deck will add some value to your home. The zestimate is done through this site. What we found is beneficial for homeowners is building a deck with Trex Deck. its amazingly easy to install, long life-span and value is far greater because its resistive  technology to termites.

First, I have to ask you what year your house was built in? In my opinion, composite decks only work well with new construction. You would never want to add a composite deck to a 100 year old home. Not only would it look out of place, but it might also potentially lower the price of the home. Can you tell me how old your home is? And the style? Also, did you already add the deck or is this planned in the near future?

It will be only a positive to those that know the difference in decking
materials, then only if you have a good layout and the work is done in
good taste with the integrity of the house...otherwise it isn't going matter
what materials you use.

As far as adding value I don't think it would add any more value than a
regular deck.

Some type houses historical or a farm house it would be a negative, some
people like the look and feel of real wood.
Composites, plastics, pvc's, and maintance free products just don't do
these homes justice and should not be used.
Even though they sometimes cost more (this case a lot more) they just
simply look cheap.

No way to say. Was there a deck there before? Are you replacing boards with Trex or a whole new deck? It might not add any extra value, there is just no way to answer that sight unseen and with just that to go on.
