According to HomeAdvisor’s 2017 True Cost Report, 2016 saw a home improvement spending upsurge due to homeowner equity increase and a rise in property values. If you’ve been meaning to tackle home improvement projects you had to put off during the recession, now is the time to do them. But which ones should you focus on first?
To help you prioritize potential home improvement projects, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas and Fort Worth recommends considering these factors:
Your Energy Level
Some improvements are more disruptive than others. Assess your energy level to figure out what type of disruption you’re willing to live through. If you’re worn out, you need to be honest with yourself and recognize that you might need a break.
Window replacement is one of the least disruptive projects you can tackle. In fact, the installation of your windows typically only takes one day. Replacing your old windows will give your home a dramatic facelift inside and out, making it well worth the effort.
Your budget should of course be your number one consideration when pursuing any home improvement project. At Renewal by Andersen of Dallas and Fort Worth, we offer financing options for replacement windows and doors so you don’t have to stretch your budget. If you don’t want to wait to save, we have several programs you may qualify for.
Decide whether to concentrate on revamping your entire home or just parts of it. Think about your master plan with your energy level and budget in mind.
In the grand scheme of things, window and patio door replacement is universally considered as a Goldilocks project. It is less labor-intensive than many other projects, and is fiscally manageable, making it perfect for those who want little disruption and minimal financial commitment.
Replacing your aging, inefficient windows or drafty exterior doors is a small change that can make a big difference. Call Renewal by Andersen of Dallas and Fort Worth at (877) 605-2922 for your FREE, in-home consultation in Fort Worth, TX.
