Profitable Renovations For Your Home

Remodeling Your Home Can Be Profitable

If you have not remodeled your home in a few years, you are probably spending more money every month than you actually need to. Below are four tips you could change, which will save you money on your monthly bills.

1. Add a steel door to your entry.  Many homes are still using wooden doors and these may not be as energy efficient as high quality steel doors.  Steel doors are more secure than most of the wooden doors out there; plus, they also look better and tend to increase the selling price of any home.

2. A new garage door is also a great way for increasing your home’s value and security. Not only will this make your home look more complete, but it will also protect your cars and your entire family. 

3. Remodeling your kitchen is a popular way to increase your home’s value, but you need to be very careful, because it is easy to make mistakes and ruin your kitchen.  It is always a good idea to contact experts and ask for advice from professional kitchen remodelers before beginning any kitchen updates.

4. Try going energy efficient with your home appliances. There are many new home electronics and remodeling accessories, which are energy efficient and can reduce the amount of energy that other appliances use. 

 So if you are thinking about remodeling your home, remember these tips and start saving money every single month. At All About the Pipes, our staff of professional plumbers or other experienced remodeling staff will recommend the best practices for renovating your home that will save you from a lot of stress.

Increasing Home Prices, Encourage People To Do Some Remodeling

clock May 8, 2014 04:32 by author Chris Vigna

Home Remodeling Increase This Year

Recent nation and worldwide economic crisis have caused many homeowners to stop their remodeling and to stop thinking about any other changes to their homes.  Renovation is not a cheap task to get involved in most of the time and this is the main reason most homeowners have stopped doing any remodeling in their homes for the past few months. 

According to some recent surveys, homeowners have also stopped remodeling their homes, because the price of their properties have dropped and they do not see the benefit of investing in remodeling, if their home is still not going to be valued at a very fair price.  The same surveys have also found that homeowners are more willing to invest in some remodeling for their homes, if the value of their houses would increase again, which is what is happening this year. 

At least 53% of the people who answered the survey stated that they are more likely to renovate their homes if the value of their property increases over the next 12 months or so.  Of that 53%, at least 48% said that they would be more comfortable getting involved in a home remodeling project that costs more than $500, if their property’s value increases over the next year. 

Experts from stores like The Home Depot have stated that they have a very positive feeling about these next 12 months, as they think that people are going to feel more confident about investing in their home remodeling and thus have more sales.

Other housing experts, have stated that there could be a 5% annual grow rate for the next four years or so in house prices and this means that we could reach peek prices in that period of time.  This would certainly return confidence in most homeowners and would allow many to get involved in more home remodeling projects over the next few years. 

So, if you have been thinking about remodeling your home, but have not done so because of the house prices that the market has right now, you can start thinking about this again, as property values might start going up during the next 12 months. 

The economy, has certainly shown signs of getting back to normal and hopefully, home pricing and values, will continue to increase, so that more of us can gain enough confidence to get involved in a new home remodeling project. 

If you really want to start remodeling your home, but are still a little scared about the economy out there, you can always start with some of your remodeling plans and just take it a step at a time.  This will prevent you from overspending and will also help you achieve your dreams.

Getting Your Home Ready For The Holidays

clock November 26, 2013 03:18 by author Chris Vigna

How To Remodel Your Home Before The Holidays Arrive

It is almost time for the holidays and it will be only a few more weeks before your family and friends start arriving at your home.  Fortunately, there is still some time to remodel some parts of your home and make it more comfortable for all of your guests.  If you follow some of the tips that we provide for you in this blog post, you will surely be able to enjoy the holidays a lot more and your guests will love their stay in your home.

One of the easiest things that you can do to make your bathrooms look more elegant during this upcoming holiday season is to change your towels. While this may not seem like a huge project, it can really enhance the way your bathrooms feel and will surely help everyone get into the holiday mood faster. 

Use colored wax to fill some of the scratches in your dining room table to make it look like new again.  This will add elegance to your dinner setting and provide a better place for your guests to sit.  It is also a good idea to clean out your closets, so your guests can have more space to store their things to have a more comfortable stay at your home.  If you have fabric furniture in your home, you should use protective spray to treat it. This will prevent it from getting damaged or stained during this holiday season.

Testing your carbon and smoke detectors is also a good idea before your guests arrive for the holidays. This will help to prevent any accidents and keep you all safe.  You should also try to clean out your fridge. Throwing away any old foods that you might have will make your fridge smell better and look organized too. 

You should also try to get your water and heating systems serviced, as this will prevent any malfunctions during the holidays and will allow your guests to relax even more.  This will also help you to save some money in the long run, as your water and heating systems will remain working well for longer periods of time and you will not have to spend money on repairs. 

 All of these things will help you to have a less stressed holiday season and they will also help to improve your household as well.  If you are still uncertain about how to take care of your water or heating systems, you should take a look at all the services and solutions All About the Pipes has available for you.
