Should You Remodel?

Spring is here and maybe you're thinking about remodeling. Remodeling magazine notes that nine out of ten high return projects are high curb appeal projects. The first on the list is garage door replacement with a 97.5% return on the value at resale. The second project on the list is replacement of vinyl siding with manufactured stone veneer and this returns 94.9% of it value at resale. 

Several of the other project that you might consider might be these projects:

  • Replacement of existing siding with new siding: 75.6 percent
  • Steel entry door replacement: 74.9 percent
  • Vinyl window replacement: 73.4 percent
  • Fiberglass grand entrance: 71.9 percent
  • Wood window replacement: 70.8 percent
  • Composite deck addition: 69.1 percent
Remodeling costs are rising but you can sometimes cut some of the costs by  shopping at places like the ReStore where they sell gently used building materials and appliance at a fraction of their retail prices.
