Somerville, NJ (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Spring is in the air, interest rates are at an all time low and many homeowners continue to remodel or expand their existing homes rather than move. Somerville Aluminum, one of the leading remodeling contractors in NJ, wants homeowners to know the top five remodeling projects to help homeowners begin planning to remodel during National Home Remodeling Month.
Housing market data reveals that small, smart remodels reward homeowners with better return on investment and can help update and customize a home. These top five most common home remodeling projects can help homeowners decide on which project is right for their home.
1. Remodel the bathroom
Payback on remodeling a bathroom can reach 65 percent with new fixtures, tile, toilet, vanity and lighting. Low flow toilets consume less water and can decrease the monthly water bill.
2. Remodel the kitchen
A minor kitchen remodel can improve the look and utility of the space without costing a bundle, and yields a 75 percent return. Consider replacing backsplashes, cabinet fronts, countertops, and flooring. Installing low-flow faucets and energy-efficient appliances can also reduce water and energy expenses in a heavily trafficked room.
3. Replace windows and doors
Updating windows can also return a solid portion of the investment (71 percent for vinyl). New, energy-efficient doors and windows also help reduce energy leakage from the home and can bring down heating and cooling bills.
4. Repair property damage
Property damage is a common but unfortunate occurrence. Seize misfortune as an opportunity to customize and upgrade the home. Homeowners already being inconvenienced with major home repairs should take that time to plan and incorporate home remodeling that may have been put off in the past.
5. Whole house remodeling
Repairs and replacements of old components and the desire for upgraded amenities were cited as the top reasons for customers to hire a remodeler. Homeowners should evaluate the use of the entire home to see if it fits their needs. Repurposing spaces to fit their families and making more efficient use of their home’s square footage and equity should be considered, rather than moving to a new home and mortgage.
Smart remodeling projects for improving the home can make the home more comfortable for a family's lifestyle.
