3 Things You Should Know About Fixing Things Up

3 Things You Should Know About Fixing Things Up

General remodeling projects deliver a better return on investment than you might think. Here are a few things you ought to know.

Bathroom Remodels
Bathroom remodels are the single most requested general remodeling job in the United States. About 78% of renovations made in the nation are actually bathroom remodels, believe it or not, and for good reason, too. Residential bathroom remodeling improvements -- big or small - yield a return on investment of about 63.6%.

Kitchen Remodels
Kitchen remodels are not to be underestimated -- they too deliver an ROI of 63.6%. What's great about these general remodeling projects is that changing the look of counters, sinks, plumbing, light fixtures, and appliances costs far less than major renovations, making investments in kitchen remodeling services incredibly affordable. Of course, that being said, while you should spend between 12% and 15% of the home's value for an updated bathroom, you should spend about 25% for an updated kitchen.

Energy Efficiency Remodels
While kitchens and bathrooms are areas of particular interest, many homeowners nowadays are looking to improve their home's energy efficiency. Not only will such projects improve the value of the home, as well as add curb appeal, but they will also save money in the long run, until the house is sold, by reducing the home's energy bill. For example, new windows can return 77% of the cost of the project.

It doesn't matter if it's your kitchen, your bathroom, or simply another area of your house that might need a bit of work; fixing things up is not a waste of time and money. Small and big projects alike have pretty sizable returns on investment.
