The real estate market is constantly changing, but one thing that has always held great importance when it comes to the value of your home, is the exterior of the home. Most people make the decision on whether or not they want to purchase a home before they even cross the threshold. Curb appeal, and the exterior of your home, are incredibly important, and are some of the first things you should do when considering a renovation. Here are 5 exterior projects that will increase the value of your home.
Professionally installed siding not only completely transforms the appearance of your home, but it also improves the insulation within your home. You can take your home from drab and old, to modern and sleek, just with updated siding.
Having a strong and durable roof is incredibly important, especially if you live in an area that experiences a lot of rainfall throughout the year. Roofing is also one of the most difficult exterior projects to tackle, but potentially the most rewarding. Roof damage is often the most expensive repair, so replacing the roofing before you find damage or leaks is so important.
Having large, energy efficient windows in your home will make it more appealing than having small or old windows. If you have a room that feels closed in or cramped, adding a window(if possible), will makeover the room and make it feel more open and inviting.
Adding a deck to the exterior of your home can increase the return on investment by 81% of the overall cost of building your deck. With that kind of return on investment, why wouldn’t you build a deck for your backyard? It’s a great place to relax, spend summer evenings, and watch your kids build snowmen during the summer. There are a lot of options when it comes to building a deck, and we can help you find the right solution for you.
Next to decks, adding a patio to your yard is one of the best things you can do to transform your backyard! You can easily build a patio out of stone, stamped concrete, or brick, and instantly boost the appeal and value of your home. You can also add a pergola or some other type of enclosure over the patio to add another beautiful element and a bit of cover.
