Whether you just bought a home or you’re looking to future and thinking about selling your current home, there’s plenty of reason to want to tackle some home improvement projects to add value to your home. We’ve all been there and we understand that once you get those ideas flowing in your mind, it’s hard to put it to rest even while you’re trying to sleep, the list of projects can stack up and so will your eagerness to get things done. The key is to plan, plan, plan. Think of it like more like a marathon than a sprint, things will get done in due time. Start by creating a remodelling plan taking into consideration your budget and how long you intend on living there. Make a list of all your hopes and dreams for remodelling your home and then prioritize the items keeping your time, resources, and money in mind. For example, the inground pool with cascading waterfall may just have to sit this one out until you get the upstairs bathroom remodelled.
Here is our list of projects we would recommend to add instant value to your home:
Garage door replacement
If your garage door is looking old, drab, and beat up it’ll probably be beneficial to consider replacing it before you put your home on the market. The garage door, along with the front entryway door tends to be a major focal point for people viewing the home and if the first impression of these isn’t a good one, well we can’t expect viewers to have an open mind about the rest of the house. The average cost of a brand new replacement garage door is approximately $1200-$2000 dollars depending on the style and material you choose. The return on investment can be up to 87% for this renovation project.
Replacement steel entryway door
Just as we mentioned with the garage door replacement, your front door will be the first thing that will greet your guests as they approach your home, it’s one of the more deciding factors on whether your home has curb appeal or not. It will set the stage for what visitors can expect once they enter your home. If you’re existing door requires you to fidget with the lock and handle just to open, close, and secure the lock, it’s likely time to swap it for a new one. A energy-efficient door is attractive, comes in a vast amount of designs, can be painted, is highly secure, and is built to last for many years. A replacement steel entryway door is a quick fix project a professional can have completed within a day and it instantly increases the value, functionality, and appearance of your home.
It’s easy to tell whether a home has brand new windows, they just look sharper and makes the house look modern, no matter how old the house is. New windows on a home is a super plus for potential buyers, it saves the hassle of having to go through the upgrade themselves.
