How to Add Value to Your Home

Ways to Add Value to Your Home
Increasing your home’s value is important if you are planning on selling it soon or in the future. There are several ways to add value to your home. Learn about which home improvement projects can make a difference.

Add Square Footage
Homes that are larger in size tend to sell at a higher price, which is why we recommend adding square footage! Renovations you may want to consider include the expansion of a kitchen or bathroom space, adding on an additional room, and converting a basement into a living space.

Install a Deck
Another way to add value to your home is by installing a deck to your home’s exterior. Decks can be used for entertainment purposes as well as relaxation. At Scott’s Lumber, we proudly offer custom outdoor deck design. Our decking material includes treated lumber, cedar, and composite. You can choose from different colors and styles that best suit your preferences and vision.

Consider Energy Efficiency Improvements
Installing energy efficiency improvements can increase the value of your home. Energy efficient windows work to keep in cool air when it’s warm outside and warm air in when the air becomes colder. Not only will you use less energy, but you’ll save money each month. More energy efficiency improvements include appliances like washers and dryers, refrigerators, air purifiers, and more. Lastly, we recommend upgrading to energy efficient lighting.

Give Your Home Curb Appeal
Let the exterior of your home make a statement! By adding curb appeal, the value of your home is likely to increase. Ways to enhance the exterior of your home include improving the landscaping, updating hardware, creating an illuminating path, making your front door pop with color, and installing new roofing.
