Before you splurge on an addition or a new kitchen, make sure your home improvement project will add to your home’s overall value. The Remodeling Magazine’s 2015 Cost VS. Value report recommends these three projects that will last a lifetime:
1. Get a new roof. According to the Remodeling Magazine report, installing a new roof can significantly improve the appearance of your home and boasts an average return-on-investment of 71%. New shingles are constructed with materials that cause less harm to the environment and provide more protection against the weather elements.
2. Swap out your front door. The door makes a first impression when guests and visitors come to your home. Adding a new door can boost your curb appeal.
3. Install new flooring. Wood flooring can last a lifetime and fit a wide variety of styles and designs. Keeping your wood floors looking like new doesn’t take much work. Decorate with runners and rugs, and use soft felt covers on the legs of your furniture to avoid scratching.
