Shrug Off That Winter Chill With Smart Home Improvement Projects

Kentucky Home Inspection Spring Is Drawing Nearer And, For Homeowners, Now Is The Time To Shrug Off The Winter Chill And Think About Home Improvement Plans.

Building industry experts say that it’s an ideal time to carefully consider and prioritize your plans – both cosmetic and structural.

Understanding what is an essential home improvement and what is purely cosmetic is fundamental for those looking to make a smart investment in their homes. The foundation, for example, is a key investment area during a renovation project. Hiring an energy rater, inspector or appraiser to examine the home will give a better sense of the required work and avoid any subsequent costly headaches.

If You’re Thinking Of Going Green, small changes such as using compact fluorescent light bulbs can contribute to reducing your home’s carbon footprint.

Cypress Siding Provides A Natural Choice For Today’s Homes

Kentucky Home Inspection Across the country, cypress siding is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners who are looking to add value, durability, and a lifetime of good looks to their homes.

Even as new high-tech siding materials flood the market, Chuck Harris of the Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association, www.cypressinfo.org, says homeowners continue to treasure the inherent beauty of nature’s purest building material, genuine wood.

“When homeowners are first acquainted with cypress siding, they are immediately impressed with its rich grain and texture,” he explains. “They like it even better when they learn that, unlike pressure-treated wood or composite materials, cypress is innately durable thanks to a preservative oil that nature itself puts into the wood.”

Architect Frank Harmon of Raleigh, N.C., agrees and says cypress possesses many qualities he prefers in a material that will be exposed to the elements. “Cypress weathers well, resists decay, and is friendly to the touch,” he notes. “Used in siding applications, cypress will easily last 100 years with proper care and maintenance.” [Read more...]

Homeowners Tackling More Home Improvement Projects Themselves

Louisville Real Estate On any given weekend, homeowners can be found climbing around in attics to add insulation, repairing shingles on the roof, installing new floors in kitchens and bathrooms, and handling many other home improvement projects that, with a little elbow grease, they are able to do themselves.

This trend is crossing many generations. Forty-four percent of millennials (born between 1980 and 2000) and 57 percent of Gen Xers (born between 1960 and 1980) prefer to do home improvement and renovation projects themselves, according to Iconoculture researchers.

“Small updates can make dramatic improvements to the look and feel of your home, like adding a fresh coat of paint, replacing an exterior door or installing new flooring,” says Kathy Krafka Harkema, Pella Windows & Doors spokesperson. “Renovations can also help increase energy efficiency, which may save money on utility bills.” [Read more...]
