The Best Home Improvements for the Money

The Best Home Improvements for the MoneyWe’ve talked about the worst money wasters in home improvements in the past. Now it’s time to talk about the best money investments for your home’s improvements. Let’s get started.

Steel front door replacement
You will not find a better replacement for your front door than steel. It’s cheaper and more durable than wood or fiberglass. Steels comes in hundreds of styles and will fit any budget and design that you have in mind for your front door.

Extra bedroom addition
Here in Arizona we don’t have many homes that have basements or attics; however, if you are one of the lucky ones who do, turning them into additional living space will dramatically increase the value of your home. A bedroom addition is valued even higher than another bathroom in the house.

Building a deck
One of the highlights of living in Arizona is that we have over 300 days of sunshine a year. That can be both good and bad. Building a deck in your backyard can give you a beautiful place to sit and offer much needed shade during those long, hot summer months. Decks can be customized to your design needs, such as surrounding an above ground pool to make it appear as an integrated feature of your backyard.

Modernizing your kitchen
The kitchen is known as the heart of the home, since many people spend the greatest amount of time in this part of their house. If your kitchen is outdated, a quality professional remodel may be something to consider. A fresh, updated kitchen can do wonders for your enjoyment as a homeowner, and it can significantly increase the resale value of your home.

Adding vinyl siding
Vinyl siding helps to protect your home from the elements and lowers your energy usage. It gives that extra insulation needed to hold in cool air during the summer and to keep warmth inside the house during the winter. A word of warning: Do not use a door-to-door service or telemarketer to purchase your vinyl siding — use a trusted company that will give you a work order in writing!
