Exterior Improvements contribute to the overall look and feel of a building. "Curb Appeal is King" One of the largest reasons to go forward with your home improvement is appearance. Especially if you're looking to sell your home. Most buyers will drive by a less than appealing exterior and immediately want to pass it, not even giving it a chance. If the exterior is updated buyers can more easily focus on creating that house their own home.
Another Major reason for exterior replacement popularity is Energy Efficiency. There are great options available right now for energy-efficency upgrades including roofing, siding and windows, which have helped boost homeowners' - both buyers' and sellers' - awareness of these possible enhansed improvements. A lot of potential buyers are seeking out homes that are not only appealing to the eye but energy efficient as well. Now buyers usually are willing to spend a little bit more if the house has new energy-efficient windows etc.
Most homeowners are now more aware of the fact that energy efficient windows or siding can save them money in the long run by offsetting energy costs. It is said by the U.S department of Energy that qualified dual or triple-paned windows can save as much as 15% to 20% on energy bills. Homeowners are drawn to improvements that help reduce the cost of maintaining the home over time. Foam-backed siding provides a modest boost in R-value as well as reduced sound trasnmission.
Replacing an old roof, putting on new siding and installing new windows might not be high on most homeowners list of "much needed" home improvements, but according to an article published by CBS News, exterior home improvements provide more return on investment than any other home improvement project. In face, replacing your front door with a new steel door can end up getting you as much as ninety-seven percent of your invested money back when you get ready to sell your home.
