3 Reasons to Renovate Your Home

Hands of Handyman with a tool belt.

Purchasing your home was probably the biggest financial decision you’ve ever made and likely the most substantial investment. Keeping on top of home maintenance and repair and keeping your home up-to-date with home renovations is the best way to maintain and add value to this major investment. TriStar Renovations in Edmonton shares 3 reasons to renovate your home:

1. Increase your personal enjoyment of your home.

You want to make your home as aesthetically pleasing and comfortable for you and your family as possible. You should thoroughly enjoy living in your home, and so your home upgrade should help enhance that enjoyment. Maybe you need more space or a second bathroom for a growing family. Perhaps it’s time to finally put in that home theatre in the basement or upgrade your outdoor living space. Upgrading your home’s look, function and comfort are great reasons to renovate.

2. Increase your home’s resale value.

While you renovate for your own comfort and enjoyment, you also renovate to increase your home’s resale value.
Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report for 2017 lists those renovations with the highest impact on resale value, including basement remodels, kitchen remodels, and bathroom remodels, as well as those projects with the highest return on investment, like changing the front door and insulating the attic.

You don’t have to break the bank to make your home sale-ready. Giving your home a fresh coat of paint on the inside and out is the easiest and most cost-effective way to give your home a fresh look. Other cost-effect changes,  like upgrading the hardware on your cabinets, replacing a faucet and repairing any functional problems all help increase the marketability of your home.

3. Increase your home’s energy efficiency.

Choosing home renovations that increase your house’s energy efficiency will reduce your impact on the environment and will save money on your utility bills. Upgrading the insulation in your attic, replacing your fixtures and faucets with low-flow models and installing energy efficient appliances can all help you save energy and even pay for themselves over time. Other energy-saving home renovations include replacing your old windows with new, high-efficiency windows, replacing your entry doors and fixing damaged exterior siding.

The Alberta government is now offering incentives for green home improvements through the Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program. All Albertans are eligible to have products like LED lights, high efficiency shower heads, faucet aerators, advanced power bars and smart (self-adjusting) thermostats installed at no charge.
