When you start thinking about renovating your home, you are probably like most people and focus primarily on the bigger projects, such as getting a new roof, building a new deck, and other improvements to your home. However, once you start to think about it and begin looking around, you may find there are many smaller projects you have not given much if any thought to along the way. To give your home a nice, fresh look while also adding to its value, consider having some of these smaller home renovation projects done in the near future.
1. Storm Door/Replacement Door Installation
When people come to your home, the doors are some of the first things they see. To add a new look to your home, look at replacing either your storm doors or other doors. As you begin diving into this project, you’ll find today’s storm and entry doors come in a wide range of styles and colors, making it easy for you to pick outdoors that will make your home look great.
2. Replacement Window Installation
Just as replacing some doors on your home will improve its looks, so too will installing replacement windows. However, your new windows will do more than just add value to your home and make it look wonderful. Using the latest technology, today’s modern windows are very energy-efficient, meaning they will almost certainly result in savings on your home’s energy bill. Whether you have large or small windows, ones in unusual shapes, or desire a look that’s very distinctive, replacement window installation should be a small project that’s big on your list.
3. Shed/Pool House Construction
If you desire some extra space to store your lawn care equipment, tools, and other stuff, you may want to think about having a storage shed constructed for your home. Since you won’t need it to be very large, it’s a small project that can usually be completed quickly by your home renovation company. Along with a shed, having a pool house made to go along with your family’s pool is certain to make any summer day that much more enjoyable as you cool off under the hot sun. Similar in size to a storage shed, once it’s done you’ll wonder why you waited so long for this small project.
4. Seasonal Winter/Snow Management
When the cold days and nights of winter arrive, there are a few small projects you’ll be glad to have done beforehand. One of the most important is adding insulation to your attic, since failing to do so will usually result in your home losing a significant amount of heat. Also, you may want to have your gutters inspected and repaired if needed since snow and ice can build up and damage your roof and fascia.
Once you begin having these small projects taken care of, you’ll find your home has not only increased in value but has also become a place that looks fantastic and gives you and your family peace of mind.
