There’s no better time to tackle home improvement than now. If you’ve delayed some discretionary renovations over the years, then you might want to pursue them in preparation for the holidays. After all, any project promises to add tremendous value to your home. Consumer confidence is high despite current political anxiety, and many homeowners believe that home values will continue their upward trend in the future.
That being said, it pays to focus on the most important home improvements. Based on the 2017 Cost vs. Value Report, Homecraft recommends these home value–adding projects:
Steel Entry Door Replacement
The survey reveals that steel entry doors let you recoup up to 90.7 of your investment at resale. Their high ROI reflects most American homeowners’ interest in them.
Steel doors offer a healthy balance between beauty, durability, energy efficiency, security, and affordability. They’re generally low-maintenance and highly-customizable. An excellent case in point is the ProVia® Legacy™ steel door system, which comes with a broad range of styles and decorative options to choose from.
Window Replacement (Vinyl or Wood)
Replacing your windows with vinyl or wood promises to return more than 70 cents on the dollar. The former registers an ROI of 73.9 while the latter delivers 73. It only shows that the popularity of vinyl remains strong among discerning homeowners despite the advent of newer options. It also indicates that wood has not lost its appeal. Either of the two materials would make a great complement to exterior doors in terms of style and function.
Insulated Vinyl Upgrade
Re-siding generally promises a high return of 76.4 at resale, but insulated vinyl trumps many of its counterparts for a variety of reasons. One: it increases the R-value of exterior walls better than most materials with its integrated layer of foam insulation. Two: vinyl eliminates maintenance problems and is immune to decay. Three: advanced technology has lent vinyl siding products greater UV protection, like ProVia’s CedarMax™.

We carry industry-leading brands, offer stellar guarantees, and have an impeccable history of customer satisfaction dating back to 1981, giving you significant value for your money.
