The exterior of your home says a lot about you and is the first impression that everyone sees when arriving at your house- especially potential buyers. For those thinking about selling their home in the near future, it’s time to start thinking about an exterior home remodel. For a final product you’ll love and want to show off, call Smith & Son’s for our professional home improvement design and consulting.
Increase Property Value
After having siding installed, homeowners can see an increase of around $10,000 for vinyl siding, and almost $12,000 for fiber-cement siding. Replacing the garage door is another easy fix and is one of the least expensive home improvement projects, yet it increases property value by more than $2,000. Also, installing energy efficient replacement windows are an excellent investment for your home, as they add around $10,000 – $12,000 to home value.
Exterior home improvement projects are some of the best ways to increase your home value and are simple to accomplish with the help of a great contracting company like Smith & Son’s. We offer exterior remodeling of roofs, siding, doors, gutters, and windows.
Even if you don’t plan on selling your home soon and aren’t worried about the increase in value, your time is still extremely valuable and shouldn’t be wasted on doing unnecessary work. Exterior home improvements can significantly cut down your time spent maintaining your home, leaving you with more time to spend however you’d like.
For instances, siding is much easier to maintain than other exterior surfaces, since it never needs to be repainted. The only thing you’ll need to worry about is power washing now and then to remove dirt or mold. Siding can last 20-30 years and will keep your home looking new with barely any maintenance required. Replacement windows also don’t need painting, staining or caulking. The new window styles are even easier to clean than old models, as the windowpanes tip inward and make it easier to clean the entire surface.
Energy savings are a huge benefit of exterior remodeling, as many new treatments are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Siding reduces heating and cooling costs by as much as 20 percent, which will save homeowners a significant amount in the long run- as previously mentioned, siding lasts 20 to 30 years! Energy efficient replacement windows offer substantial savings, as they help to make a home’s interior warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This has proven to lower heating and cooling costs significantly and is seen as one of the most worthwhile remodeling projects for homeowners.
