Not every home improvement project has to be done to keep your home from falling apart. Sometimes, a need for fresh aesthetics or boosted home value is enough to tackle home improvement. The question is which projects to take on in order to boost your home aesthetics and value. Here are a few projects to consider:
Your roof impacts your curb appeal more than you might think. If your roof is shabby, discolored, or has missing shingles, neighbors will definitely notice. On the other hand, if your roof is smooth and neat, with designer shingles, this impression will be much more positive. A roof replacement can help protect your home from the elements, make your home more energy efficient, and it can boost your aesthetics. So it’s no wonder that replacing your roof with a more attractive and durable model is sure to boost your home value.
Your siding is one of the first things people notice about your home. If it’s fresh and vibrantly colored, it will make your home stand out and boost your curb appeal. But siding is not meant to last forever, and eventually you’ll need to replace it when your siding starts to look a little worn down. On the other hand, you might replace your siding simply because you’ve had a change of preference. Either way, this is sure to give anyone who sees your home a fresh perspective on it — including yourself, and more importantly, including future buyers.
More Light (Windows)
Installing new windows can impact the aesthetic of your home both inside and out. From the outside, new windows impact the look of the walls of your home. On the interior, more windows means more expansive views of the outdoors and more natural lighting to fill the room. The more you’re able to light the room with windows, the less you’ll have to rely on your electrical lighting, thus making more windows energy efficient. This is especially true when these are already energy efficient windows, which can thus boost your home value.
