5 Spring Home Renovation Projects to Boost the Value of Your Home
Spring is officially here! While the weather may not be warming up just yet, give it a few weeks. We are getting close!
Once the weather breaks for good, it’s time to get out that handy list of home renovation projects. This spring, you should be able to take on a few projects that boost the value of your home.
If you don’t know where to start, here are five spring projects that some of your neighbors are sure to tackle:
1. Clean Up Your Landscaping
It doesn’t take much money (if any) to complete this job. However, the end result is increased property value and more curb appeal than you ever thought possible.
Set aside a weekend to trim your bushes and trees, pull weeds, and clean up mulch beds. A little bit of hard work can go a long way when it comes to your landscaping.
2. A Fresh Coat of Exterior Paint
Maybe you need to paint your entire home. Or maybe some trim and shutters require your attention. Regardless, spring is a good time to take on this project.
Find a few days free of rain, buy some paint, and get out your ladder. When everything is said and done, the overall appearance of your home will knock you off your feet.
3. Add a Storage Shed
Are you tired of storing your lawnmower in your garage? Are your garden tools piling up in your basement? It may be time to add a storage shed to your yard.
You can build your own or you can call in a professional. Either way, you are getting a lot in return. Not only does it give you a place to store your outdoor equipment, but it adds value to your property.
4. Add a Deck
Yes, this is a big project. Yes, it can cost tens of thousands of dollars if you want an elaborate design with the best materials. Even so, this shouldn’t scare you away. It’s worth a second look.
Your deck can be whatever you want it to be. From a small, all wood structure to a large, composite structure, let your imagination be your guide. Once the job is complete, you will have somewhere special to enjoy those warm spring and summer nights.
5. Replace Old Flooring
This is an interior project that can be completed at any time of the year, but now is as good a time as ever.
Maybe you have old, dirty carpet in your family room. Why not replace it with hardwood? Or maybe you have cracked ceramic tile in your kitchen. It may be time for a fresh look. This is one of the quickest ways to add value to your home.
