It’s easy for people to overlook improvements that can help optimize their remodeling investment. At the top of my list is adding more insulation to the home.
MOBILE, AL (PRWEB) February 23, 2018
With projections of increased spending for home improvements in 2018, Home Expert Danny Lipford, host of Today’s Homeowner TV and Radio, offers advice to help consumers plan smart and optimize their remodeling investment. The most recent Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) released from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University anticipates spending on improvements and repairs will approach $340 billion in 2018, an increase of 7.5% from 2017. Additional data from Metrostudy’s Residential Remodeling Index forecasts a 5.2% rise in home improvement activity for the current year, predicting there will be more than 12.5 million $1,000-or-more projects launched in 2018.
According to Lipford, it’s important for homeowners to keep the big picture in mind when taking on remodeling projects. “If a homeowner is finishing a basement, or making an addition for example,” says Lipford, “their focus is typically on the finished product – attractive, usable living space. It’s easy for people to overlook some of the other improvements that can help optimize their remodeling investment. At the top of my list is adding more insulation to the home.”
To share advice on the benefits of insulation to the home, Lipford launched a series of TV segments airing February 19-26 across the U.S. In the 2-minute segments, he explains how easy is it to add insulation during remodeling projects, and walks through the many benefits it brings to homes and homeowners alike.
Lipford explains adding insulation to the home is the number one improvement offering the best financial return on investment. Homeowners will see immediate benefits with reduced energy bills and increased comfort inside the home. In the segments, he introduces viewers to stone wool insulation as his go-to choice for its unique properties of fire resistance and water repellency. ROCKWOOL, formerly known in the U.S. as ROXUL, is the world's largest producer of stone wool insulation. This type of insulation is made from actual stone, so it is naturally fire resistant and offers an added layer of protection in the event of a home fire. In addition, stone wool insulation is water repellent. It prevents mold and mildew growth thereby contributing to a healthier home. Finally, Lipford discussed the soundproofing benefits that come with increasing a home’s insulation.
The lifestyle segments will reach over 8 million viewers and are sponsored by Today’s Homeowner Media and ROCKWOOL.
