Benefits of Exterior Home Improvements

Fran Beaulieu

December 9, 2020

From boosting your home’s value to giving you a more enjoyable home to live in, hiring a quality contractor offers distinct advantages. Here are some of the common exterior residential home improvement projects that give homeowners the biggest bang for their buck.

Increase Your Home Value

Some exterior projects can significantly boost your home value such as:

For instance, upgrading your garage door could increase your home value by $1,000-$2,000, while bigger projects like siding installation or window replacement could be closer to a $10,000-$12,000 increase. These upgrades provide a modern look and better curb appeal, contributing to your home’s resale value.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Old windows and siding are often the culprits for the high energy bills you may be experiencing. Replacing them with newer and more energy-efficient models can be an exterior home improvement project worth investing in. Not only will you save money on your energy bills, but you’ll also feel more comfortable. No more living in a cold (or hot) house!

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save an estimated $120 to $460 per year when you replace your single-pane windows. You can save $25 to $110 a year by replacing your double-pane windows with energy-efficient ones.

Old siding may be another reason for energy loss, which may affect the temperature inside your home and mean higher energy usage. Investing in siding can help increase your home’s value due to the energy efficiency and newer appearance. Note that vinyl siding, featuring a foam backing, gives you more interior temperature control than other materials.

Cut Back On Maintenance

As a homeowner, you know constant maintenance is a requirement, taking your valuable time away from your busy schedule. This is especially true if you have to caulk, adjust or maintain older:

  • doors
  • windows
  • siding
  • roofing

Many newer products today are designed to require less maintenance, which means more time for the things you enjoy doing.

Enjoy The Curb Appeal Of Your Home

Outside of all the financial benefits and time saving of residential home improvement products, you can also enhance the curb appeal of your home with an upgraded exterior. Pulling into the driveway of your freshly renovated home can make you feel more positive about life. Even if you don’t have plans to sell your home in the near future, you owe it to yourself to enjoy the home you’re living in and the exterior appearance plays a big role in that.
