Now that spring is finally here in the Minneapolis metro, we’ve been getting calls from people who have been dreaming of exterior remodeling projects all winter long and are ready to get going. If that’s you, it’s a wise choice!
The exterior of your home is the calling card that shows everyone a taste of what might be inside your home. It also says a lot about the people who own the home. But is the outside of your home sending the right message?
When you change the look of the exterior of your home, you can ensure that you are getting the attention that is needed.
When you’re contemplating exterior remodeling, one thing to keep in mind is the value you’re getting for your investment. (There are certain home remodeling projects that can actually reduce the value of a home, by the way.) Whether you want a change for the home now or you’re thinking of selling in the near future, it is important that you impress future home buyers by the way the outside of the home looks. These projects can increase your home’s value.
Exterior Home Improvements That Add Value
New Roofing: As one of the most difficult projects to tackle and one of the more expensive options, it is definitely a project that can increase your home’s value when you select the right roofing material. A major focus for home buyers is the age of the existing roof. And its appearance matters, too. A new roof will protect your home for years to come, and that’s something potential buyers value.
Maintenance-Free Siding Transform the appearance of your home using the right siding. Maintenance-free siding is high on the list of priorities for home buyers. But even if you’re not planning on selling any time soon, maintenance-free siding like the fiber cement siding and trim products from James Hardie (shown in the photo above) can provide the protection that a home needs, without any of the upkeep other siding might require. Plus you can update the entire outside look of the home with a simple siding re-do.
Energy-Efficient Windows: Windows that can save on energy use for heating and cooling are one of the best updates to make on the home. When you put new windows in, not only does the home look updated but it provides it with a protective layer that the new homeowner does not have to worry about replacing. And while you’re living in your home, you’ll save money on your utility bills, too.
Adding Patios and Decks: Attractive outdoor living spaces are very popular. Patios and decks add spaces that allow you to move your living outdoors in nice weather. By adding these extras in, you can find that this uplifts the outside of the home and also ensures that you appeal to anyone that loves the Minnesota outdoors.
With so many changes that can be made on the exterior of the home, you can find that one speaks to you over another. Change the way your home looks and feels with these changes and also increase the value of your home at the same time.
