Home renovation ideas to try in 2018

1. Replace your old roof

Here are some of the benefits of replacing your property’s roof:

  • It can increase your home’s value
  • It can increase your home’s energy efficiency (if your old roof leaks cool air, your HVAC system needs to work harder in order to maintain the proper indoor temperature)
  • It can contribute to your wellbeing and overall health (a new roof prevents mold and mildew, thus it keeping you and your family safe from germs).



2. New year, new siding

Replacing your home’s siding can be a costly and time consuming process. Unfortunately, siding has a limited lifespan.

The good news is that you will probably only have to renew it once in a lifetime. Typically, siding can last up to 50 years or more, depending on the material it is made of.

Keep in mind that the condition of your home’s exterior siding can affect your home’s curb appeal as well as its energy efficiency.

Second on our list of home renovation ideas, siding replacement is a must. Here’s an example to get you inspired.

3. Bye, bye old windows

Although replacing your windows may not be on the top of your home renovation ideas list, it is on ours.

Here’s how you can tell if your old windows need to “retire”:

  • They are foggy (even if you spend hours cleaning them)
  • They are difficult to open and close
  • They have rotten frames
