4 Home Updates That Pay Off When Your Vermont Home Needs a Facelift
These home updates will offer a boost to your home’s aesthetic and your ROI.
Most homeowners don’t have a limitless budget when it comes to home improvements. If you’re planning on making updates to your Vermont home in 2019, you’re probably looking for updates that will offer the most value for what they’re worth. These updates should last for years and offer benefits to your home that easily pays off the cost of the work and materials. Fortunately, with strategic choices and the right contractor, it’s easily possible to give your home a facelift that pays off. Here are a few ideas to get started.
If it’s been a while since your last window replacement, or you’ve never had a window replacement in your current home, your old windows may be costing you more than you know. Old windows are susceptible to air leakage and heat loss, which can cause your heating and cooling bills to shoot up. In the midst of Vermont winters, they may even develop window condensation, which can lead to problems like mold or mildew. Updating your windows with energy efficient options custom-fitted to your home is a great way to boost the curb appeal and aesthetic of your home while also lowering your heating and cooling bills. And the more energy efficient they are, the more value they’ll add to your home.
Does your backyard feel uninspired? Adding a deck can enhance your outdoor entertainment space and your landscaping. It can also make a big impression on potential buyers in the future and add value to your home. You can install a customized deck and spruce it up with a pool or spa, or even potted plants along the sides of the deck. This update will impress your friends and family when you have them over, and it will offer a great return when it comes to resale value.
The more square footage your home has, the higher the value will be, so it’s not surprising that a home addition can pay off if you ever decide to sell the house. The great thing about home additions is that they’re versatile. You can add anything from a guest bedroom to a bathroom, making the master bedroom a master suite. You can add a game room or a bar in the basement, or a sunroom to enjoy the sunnier mornings of the year as you sip your coffee. If you can imagine a new room in your home, you can run it by your remodeling contractors.
Are you tired of the external appearance of your home? Even if there’s nothing technically wrong, it might simply be that your siding is outdated, faded, or that you just want a change of scenery. Whatever the reason may be, new siding could be the solution, and it can certainly pay off. Fresh siding gives your home a new, fresh look overall, no matter how long ago it was built. It will catch the eye of neighbors and friends as well as potential buyers if the time comes to resell. At Jancewicz & Son, we offer both vinyl and wood siding so you have options when it comes to this update.
