Renovating your home makes it more energy-efficient, more aesthetically pleasing, and more attractive to potential buyers. While there are dozens of renovation options to choose from, let’s explore the 5 best things you can do to improve the value of your home.
1. Repair Your Roof
A damaged or outdated roof can cause water damage, increase energy costs, and, of course, reduce home value. A professional can solve roof issues, such as cracked or curled shingles or streaking stains. If your roof is continually causing you grief, you might opt for an entirely new roof. Consider having professionals install a metal roof, since metal is durable, fire retardant, and maintenance free.
2. Add Siding
Another great way to increase both the sale value and the energy efficiency of your home is by adding new siding. Whether it’s stone or vinyl siding, siding protects your home from all types of weather—plus it helps your home look distinguished. You can also give your home a unique look by adding decorative stucco or stone.
3. Repair Your HVAC Unit
A faulty HVAC unit could be costing you lots of extra money in energy bills. Have a professional evaluate and repair your HVAC unit. If it’s very outdated, they may recommend that you purchase a new HVAC unit. Remember that a high-functioning HVAC system will a produce a return in your investment in just a few years.
4. Upgrade Windows and Doors
Imagine the “wow factor” involved with installing beautiful new windows and doors to your home. But, don’t disregard the other benefits of upgrading windows and doors: better energy efficiency, improved sound proofing, and enhanced security benefits.
5. Insulate Your Home
Yet another way to lower the energy bill is to improve your home’s insulation. Experts can inspect your current insulation and check for leaks and other problems. They can also provide a high-quality insulation for your attic and your home’s siding to increase energy efficiency.
