Upping the Worth: Top Remodeling Tips That Will Increase the Value of Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    You probably looked hard to find the right home in a great location and at a great price.

    But at some point every homeowner thinks about remodeling.


If you’re a practical person, you’ve probably thought about how those changes could affect your equity. Here are some remodeling tips that can help to increase the value of your home.

Add Landscaping

If you’ve let that nice, green lawn slide a bit, it’s wise to put the money and effort into keeping it up. You may also want to add a few attractive features like neat hedges, shrubs, flowering plants, and fruit trees.

Some good choices, regular watering, and mulch can get you there. You could also add a flagstone walkway, a small fountain, or a few stone planters to add even more curb appeal.

Replace the Roof

Everyone shopping for a home is going to worry about the condition of the roof. You can allay these fears and increase value by installing new roofing. Depending on your budget and the style you’re going for, you can find a wide variety of products today, including traditional shingles or cement tile in a range of colors and styles.

Modern, energy-efficient materials include thermoplastic or EPDM (rubber-based) products. These often include a transferable guarantee of 20 years or more.

Install Hardwood Flooring

Many home buyers will pay top dollar for hardwood floors. Though more expensive than other materials, hardwood floors can last for generations. They come in a variety of natural finishes from oak to exotic mahogany. Lighter woods can be re-stained to almost any finish you want. If the wood you want is outside your price range, you might go for engineered flooring, which is thick hardwood veneers over laminate cores.

Redo the Bathroom

For many people, the bathroom is the one oasis of peace and privacy. An elegant, spa-quality bath can add value to the entire house. New fixtures and nice tile work can completely transform a bathroom. You can replace the toilet, sink, or countertops with more upscale versions to create a feeling of elegance.

Some experienced bath contractors, like those from Velarde Builders Inc, can even redesign the whole space to increase your square footage and still provide a luxurious atmosphere.

One caveat is that badly managed improvements won’t add very much to home value. Find a reputable contractor for a good job you can be happy to live with until the day comes when you can enjoy the increased value.
