UPDATE YOUR HOME EXTERIOR
There’s a body of expert research that shows several major home exterior renovations will recoup a majority of a homeowner’s initial investment. In fact, siding replacement will return 74-77 percent back to the homeowner; entry doors as much as 68%. Roof, garage door and window replacements are also top options.
Siding replacement. Fiber Cement.
Dated and failing siding can make even the nicest house look worn-out. Fiber cement siding is engineered to look and feel like wood but maintain its integrity and stand up to harsh weather conditions. Formulated with a mixture of sand, cement, and wood fiber it can mimic almost any form of siding a homeowner might want. The research we have seen indicates, on average, a homeowner will get back more than three-quarters of their fiber cement investment upon resale.
Siding replacement. Vinyl.
To freshen a home’s exterior at a price point less than fiber cement, vinyl siding replacement can be an effective and attractive alternative. It continues to be one of the most popular home exterior materials on the market today. Low maintenance and durable, it is the most sensible siding solution on the market today. On average, it returns roughly 74% of the initial investment upon resale.
