Spring Home Improvement Projects
Return-on-investment is a term that most people associate with stocks, bonds and Wall Street. That could not be farther from the truth. As a homeowner, you want to get more money for your home than you originally paid for it when the time comes for you to sell it. Home improvement projects increase the value of your home. Spring is a great time of the year here in Houston to start on your home improvement list. The days are longer; the weather is continuously warm and the rains of summer have yet to begin. It is still cool enough to spend hours outside before the scorching heat of summer begins.
We list the highest return-on-investment home improvement projects below.
Highest ROI Home Improvement Projects
Before all other home improvement projects get complete, the foundation should be secure and level. If the underlying structure of your home is compromised, it is not wise to invest in other projects that may be impacted once the foundation is brought to level.
Before doing any home improvement projects, check for signs of foundation issues. Bring in a professional slab foundation repair contractor to inspect your home foundation before doing any other home projects. You will save time and money.
The top of your home is almost as important as the bottom. Inspect your roof for water damage, missing shingles, mis-aligned shingles, missing flashing, and signs of shingles that are zippering. Depending on the size of the roof and the budget, it may be worth investing in a metal roof.
Spring offers a climate perfect for placing a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home. Most paint manufacturers recommend temperatures below 85 degrees for the paint to set properly. The best home painting jobs start with preparing the house being painted. Take the time needed to clean and caulk your home before laying down new paint.
Often homeowners do not opt for gutter guards when they initially have their gutters installed. The cost of these guards can be almost as much as the gutters themselves. Because of this, you may need to clear your gutters of debris a few times a year. Typically, the job requires a ladder and a few hours of the homeowners time, however, sometimes it is recommended to call in a professional to clean out the gutters.
If you are an avid do-it-yourself enthusiast you may opt to install energy efficient windows in your home. Even if you do not perform the installation yourself, energy efficient windows are one of the biggest cost-saving measures a homeowner can make. It typically only takes about five years for the windows to pay for themselves in energy savings.
Major Home Renovations
The list provided above are home improvement projects that should be complete before any home renovation projects. New kitchen, new bathrooms, and pool installations should all be completed after most major home improvement projects have been completed.
