Planning for Your Home Improvements in 2019

home remodel includes new roof, siding and windowsIs 2019 the year you’ve decided to make some improvements to your home’s exterior. If you’ve been putting it off because you know that a new roof or replacement siding and windows are expensive, stop procrastinating. Although investing in exterior home renovations is expensive, the benefits are numerous and there are many ways to pay for those improvements without breaking the bank.

Understand the Total Investment

Whether you’re planning a total exterior remodel or just looking for a new roof, you need to understand how much you’re going to spend and what the return on that investment will be. Although some less than ethical sales people will tell you that you’ll get your money back on your home improvement when you sell your home, you won’t. Yes, there’s a chance that your home will sell faster and you will get more if you have a new roof compared to a similar home with an aging roof, you won’t get your total investment back.

Talk to several exterior renovation companies about your budget, what you’re wanting to do and the options they offer. You’ll find that different brands and different installers can charge widely varying rates on their services with little difference in the benefits they offer. Never hand over a deposit without signing a contract that clearly states the brand, style and color of the products you want and lists what is included for the price quoted.

Decide How to Pay for Your Improvements

If you’re looking at a new roof, replacement windows and siding, you could end up spending as much as $50,000 depending on the size of your home, how many windows you have and what you’re looking for. If you don’t have the cash on hand to pay for those improvements, talk to the contractor about their financing options. You can also talk to your bank about a home equity line of credit or loan or even do a cash out refinance.  Some home improvement contractors offer financing with options as low as zero percent so be sure to ask about the financing they can provide.
