As the weather gets warmer, spring fever becomes inevitable and urge to start home improvement projects comes along. In most cases, money is tight and everyone wants to get the most bang for their buck. The Coldwell Banker West Shell-Hyde Park released the Top 10 Projects that Add Home Value. Most items are projects that have a modest price tag and will add value to your home.
Here are some highlights:
With the price of utilities, finding an energy efficient solution allows you to not only add value but also continue to save money in the future. The top energy efficient project is adding insulation. According to the Department of Energy, adding more insulation to your attic is easiest and cost effective. If you have less than 11 inches, you will need to add more. This helps your house stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Moonworks offers blown in cellulose and fiberglass insulation. Most houses over 10 years old only have 1/3 of the recommended insulation. You can save 20% on your utilities!
Now that spring is here, many people want to get outside for their home projects. The top home exterior project is repairing gutters. In addition to alleviating water damage, keeping your gutters clean make your home look more attractive. Luckily, Moonworks provides Gutter Helmet, the gutter protection system that once installed means that you never have to clean your gutters! Which will keep your home’s exterior looking clean and beautiful for years to come. Landscaping is another top home improvement project. Add some curb appeal to your home by keeping your lawn clean and lush. Plants and perennial flowers help add beauty to your home as well. Your local nursery will be able to help you pick plants and flowers that will flourish in your area.
While most of these projects are budget friendly, the winner of the most budget friendly project is cleaning the clutter from your home. Now that the weather is warmer, spring cleaning will begin. Cleaning and organizing your home will not only give you more space but also piece of mind.
Moonworks provides many products that aid in adding value to your home. Adding insulation, solar hot water, solar pool heating or a new roof allows your home to be more energy efficient, saving you money in utilities. Siding and new windows allows your home to have more curb appeal and therefore increasing its value. However, if you want to make to the most of the warmer weather coming our way, Gutter Helmet is maintenance free because you never have to clean your gutters again.
