Wait a minute! Don’t contact that realtor just yet. There are things you can do to make your home look completely different or even just a little bit better. These things can be simple, a lot cheaper and less time consuming than going through the whole home buying and selling process.
Simple things like just changing your windows.
A Remodeling Project to Update your Windows
If you have old, worn out windows that fog up or are rusted around the edges, they are making your house look bad. Just like the outside of your house needs a new coat of paint every couple of years to look good, your windows also need to be replaced to keep the outside of your house looking good. Yes, it can be costly to replace the windows but so can repainting your house and you do that without second guessing it.
When was the last time you replaced your windows? Did you know that if you have older model windows that you are missing out on the energy savings you could see on your heating bill?
You have the option with newer windows to choose ones that can keep the heat in during the winter and the heat out during the summer. These windows are called “energy-efficient windows” and your older windows most likely are not.
Enclose a Porch for a Remodeling Project
Enclosing a porch for a remodeling project can create two different benefits for the value of your home.
First, enclosing a front porch with decorative windows with a remodeling project from Renewal by Andersen can add to the look of your home. It can also provide you with shelter from the weather when you are trying to get into your home and can’t get the door unlocked.
Second, having Renewal by Andersen work with you on enclosing a back porch can create an additional small room you can use. These smaller rooms are good as mudrooms, laundry rooms and even a garden room. Garden rooms are places where you can keep your gardening tools along with a narrow table to make it easier for you to work with potted plants.
A Remodeling Project to Completely Change your Windows
By completely changing the type of windows you have in your home you can change the whole look. For example, you can remove small, front room windows and replace them with large picture windows. This will require altering the wall to fit the larger window, but Renewal by Andersen can help you with everything you need to make these changes.
You can also choose windows that have smaller multiple panes or are a different color or open a different way. Anything that is different from what your windows look like now will change the look of your home, just like changing the color of paint on the house does.
