Exterior Remodeling: How It Can Increase Your Home’s Value
Your home is more than just a roof over your head. When you buy a home, you are making a large investment. And the goal with any investment is to ensure it is worth more when you sell it than it was when you bought it. This is true when investing in a home as well. You don’t want to buy a house that will lose you money over time. With exterior remodeling, you can be sure that your home continues to increase in value. Here are a few ways that you can increase the value of your home.
A New Roof
The roof of your home is constantly exposed to the harsh elements of nature. From humid summer heat to heavy snowstorms, your roof experiences wear and tear all year-round. Overtime your roof will begin to decay. If you notice missing, curled up, or chipped shingles on your roof, it may be time to think about getting a new one. Damaged shingles can lead to a domino effect of additional problems for your home. Your roof can begin to leak, leading to water damage on the inside of your home.
Besides the fact that a new roof will help protect and insulate your home, it will ultimately increase the aesthetic value of your home. A roof that has experienced years of wear and tear will show it and your curb appeal will suffer. So, the cost of a new roof will not only save you money on constant repairs but it will increase your home’s value as well.
The siding on your house is quite literally the biggest part of your home. Because of this, it is very important to maintain it if you want to increase the value of your home. Damaged siding will quickly decrease your home’s curb appeal.
The most beneficial aspect of having new siding installed on your home is the money you can save on your energy bill. This is especially true for homes built before 1994, which are not up to date with current weather resistance standards. Replacing your siding includes having a weather resistant barrier installed. This barrier will keep air flow and water from penetrating your siding.
New Gutter System
Gutters are crucial for protecting your home against water damage. During heavy rainstorms, gutters allow water to run away from your home. If your gutters are starting to show rust or corrosion then you have a problem for two reasons. One, they can no longer do their job properly. When a leak or a clog occurs in your gutter, water will begin to run down the siding of your home, which can lead to corrosion from excess water damage. Aside from the functionality issues, rusty gutters are far from aesthetically appealing.
