If you're looking to sell your home at some point but want to make sure you get the best price possible from the sale, you're probably already remodeling. Getting a roof replacement or new roofing installation, or having the siding repaired, are good places to start for improving the value of your home.
Home improvement can be one of the best ways to get a return on your investment, especially if you plan on selling at some point in the future. Things like replacing a roof, or the siding, or even just window replacement, can have tremendous benefits in the long run.
When thinking about new window installation, few people think about how a window can mean the difference between saving them money each month on their energy bills or, quite literally, letting that same money fly right out their new window. Some think going for the cheapest window choice is best, as it saves them money right then and there. But that's not always the case.
At this time of year, many people are wondering whether a new roof or other home project they did in 2016 will possibly help them earn a tax credit in April. The answer is…maybe. The first step in getting that tax credit is to always keep your receipt for any home improvement, like new roofing, siding, windows and doors, so that you can prove the purchase. We also always advise our customers to consult their tax professional if they have questions about the tax benefits of their home improvements. However, while there are many ways your project can qualify for a tax benefit depending on your individual situation, the two most common are as a capital improvement or a residential energy efficient property credit.
As 2016 comes to a close, it's time to look at what some of the hottest home remodeling service trends are looking like for 2017. Over the last year, there's been an emphasis on smart technology for homes, as well as more eco-friendly amenities and minimalist designs. While 2017 is set to move in a new direction, that doesn't mean 2016 home design trends will be completely left behind.
Replacing your windows in winter can be a great solution for arresting the energy-stealing power of the seasonal cold. For most people, winter is not the first choice season for window replacement, yet it might be the best Christmas gift you can give your home. If you are tired of drafty, rotting, rattling windows and want to see through the winter with snug-fitting, energy-efficient, attractive new ones, don’t hesitate to make that call! In fact, we all know winter is the month where the heating bills are highest. By replacing your windows now, you can help those bills dip, rather than rise, through the coldest months of the year.
The sun is out, the weather is hot, and the last thing anyone’s thinking about is that frigid winter wind. But sadly, summer will be over before you know it, and soon it will be time to crank up the heat and throw some logs in the fireplace
Remember 2005, when the nation's foremost real estate "experts" thought that home values would keep rising and rising indefinitely? Well, things have changed since then, to say the least.
A lot of people think that when it comes to curb appeal, landscaping is the most important thing you can do to make your home attractive to potential buyers. However, there are many other parts of the house that make an even bigger impression, consciously and unconsciously. They also have the added bonus of increasing the value of your home as well. It’s a good idea to invest in projects that make the house itself look modern, well-kept, and eye-catching, so that your home is always open house-ready.
