As we near the halfway point of 2021, you might be taking stock of your goals for the year and how you have fared in reaching them. From getting up earlier each day, to meditating regularly, to exercising more or perhaps spending more quality time with loved ones. With only seven months left of the year, now is the perfect time to take action and make sure you are on track for your 2021 goals. Perhaps you had the goal of improving your home with new windows, a new roof or maybe updating your siding. Ticking those big home improvements off your 2021 list is bound to put a spring in your step, so if you have not started, what is holding you back?
Many of our customers come to us with grand home improvement plans, but at the same time, question the value of home improvements and whether it is a wise place to invest their money. In this article, we will be discussing why home improvements are worth the investment and also why financing your home improvement project might be the right option for you.
Home Improvements Make Your Home More Comfortable & Add Value
It is no secret that at Windows on Washington, we love all things ‘home improvement.’ And, while many people carry out home improvement projects to make their home more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, there are other reasons for choosing to improve your home, such as adding value and reducing energy bills. Whether you are looking to sell your home in the near future or not, the right home improvement project can provide you with a significant Return on Investment (ROI).
For example, replacement windows can add significant value to your home, while also reducing your energy bills. In fact, when you install energy-efficient windows with low-E coating, you can save up to 15% on your utility bills each year. Also, when investing in energy-efficient replacement windows, you can expect to recoup anywhere from 60% to 90% of your costs when and if you decide to sell your home.
Insulation is another home improvement option with a great ROI, which can also save you money on energy bills in the long-run. If your home does not have basic insulation or has old doors and windows that allow air to leak from the outside in and vice versa, this can be a major problem for you today, and if you ever want to sell in the future. Insulating your home and air sealing cracks around your house will not only make your home more comfortable and decrease your energy bills, it will also appeal to potential buyers down the road.
Siding replacement is another home improvement project that will make your home more aesthetically pleasing, more comfortable to live in, and provide you with an ROI of 77.6% (for fiber-cement siding). Installing new siding is often more expensive than other home improvement projects, however most siding comes with transferable lifetime warranties, which provides significant value for you and any future owners of the house.
Why Financing Your Home Improvement Project Might Be the Right Choice
Now that you understand that there are several home improvement projects that are certainly worth their value and worth the investment, it is worth considering the option of financing these projects. There are countless benefits to financing your home improvement project, such as the ability to manage your cash flow with monthly payments when it suits you, and get started on your desired home improvement projects right away.
Another benefit of financing in your home improvement project is you can start saving money with energy efficient home improvements, without needing to pay for your new windows, doors, insulation or siding up front. Having your home improvement projects completed in time for summer means you can begin saving money on power bills immediately, which ultimately increase during summer as you are cooling down your home.
