Exterior home renovations can range from quick and easy tasks to expensive, time-consuming projects. But one thing is certain: anything you do to help improve the look of your home’s exterior is well worth the time, money, and effort – especially when your aim is to improve your home’s value and its chances for selling.
In this blog post, we’ll highlight some of the best exterior home renovations and remodeling projects you can do to make the most dramatic difference in how your home looks, and how much it’s worth.
New Siding Installation
Replacing your old, dinged-up siding with new vinyl siding can give your home an entirely new and updated look. Plus, according to the Remodeling 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, the national average is to recoup about 76% of the money you put into the project in home value. With first impressions being paramount when trying to sell your home, having new siding installed is like giving your home an award-winning smile.
Wood Deck Addition
Adding a wood deck to your home not only adds enjoyment in the summer time, but it also adds value because wood decks are popular among homebuyers. And despite what you might think, having a wood deck installed instead of a composite deck actually gives you a better return, simply because of the cost savings of materials. The Remodeling 2019 Cost vs. Value report national average for the average wood deck, indicates you can expect to recover nearly 76% of the cost, while the average composite deck delivers a return of just over 69%.
New Roof Replacement
Having a new roof installed is one of the more expensive exterior renovations on a home, but it’s also one of the most important. A new roof improves a home’s look, its energy efficiency, and its interior comfort level. A new roof is also an improvement that delivers roughly 68% return on its investment according to the Remodeling 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, and in many cases, it can make the difference between a home selling and the property standing idle on the market.
New Garage Door
A new garage door doesn’t cost a lot of money, but it does deliver one of the best returns of any curb appeal makeover project. In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine, the average garage door replacement job costs around $3,600 with you capable of recouping as much as 98% of that.
