4 Repairs You Can Do to Increase Your Home’s Value

It’s no secret that living in your home inevitably creates wear and tear. This can leave you with chipped paint, a few cracks and holes, or sometimes even worse problems. But it’s important to remember that your home is one of your largest assets and how you take care of it while you’re living there, will determine how much work you have to do, should you ever decide to sell.

So, in the spirit of spring cleaning, we’ve got four home repair projects you can do now to increase your home’s value.

1.) Paint

A fresh coat of paint can elevate any room or area instantly. It’s one of the simplest, and most cost-effective ways to make a room look more new and more clean, and that spells value. Whether the trim could use a touch up, or you want to brighten the entire room by adding a few fresh coats, grab some brushes and start painting today!

2.) Roof repairs

Just like the foundation is vital to the structure and support of your home, so is your roof. From summer thunderstorms to winter blizzards, your roof takes a beating. So, have it inspected for any leaks or cracks and while you’re at it, ensure your gutters are clean and debris free.

3.) Kitchen update

The kitchen is one of the most frequented rooms in your home, and not just because everyone has to eat. This room is a communal space and a space that everyone has access to, but you don’t need to do a full overhaul to add value to your home. If your kitchen has any outdated appliances, like a stained microwave or a dying oven, consider replacing them with new energy-efficient ones. And as noted above, try a fresh coat of paint in your kitchen to brighten things up and make the room feel more open.

4.) Deck and patio renovations

Like your kitchen, your deck or patio is a space where people commune and unwind. So, make sure this space is clean, safe and as up to date as possible. From loose nails to rooted boards to crumbling steps, give your deck a thorough inspection.

If you’re unsure if your space is safe or not structurally sound, reach out to a professional to get a second opinion. Their experience and expertise is unmatched. So, make sure your home is ready to sell and give us a call today for an inspection and let us help you!
