When you decide to renovate your home’s exterior, it’s often out of necessity. Whether your siding is no longer energy-efficient or your roof is leaking, many homeowners don’t view these projects as “fun.” But, the truth is that exterior investments are generally the most valuable home projects you can do.
In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2022 Cost vs. Value Report*, nine of the top 10 best-value home upgrades are exterior projects. Let’s take a closer look at the true value of some of the exterior remodeling services we offer to our customers.
Vinyl Window Replacement
Average return on investment: 65.4%
No. 4 Best Value Project Overall
Replacing your outdated windows can bring more light into your home and help improve your overall energy efficiency. Best of all, they offer great value. Both vinyl and wood window replacements top the list of the best value projects, with vinyl windows offering a slightly higher value (65.4%) vs wood windows (61.3%).
Here at Carolina Exteriors, we offer a variety of different window options so you’ll have no problem finding the perfect choice for your home.
Fiber Cement Siding Replacement
Average return on investment: 64.4%
No. 6 Best Value Project Overall
While vinyl and fiber cement siding replacements both made the list, fiber cement has the edge on value. Our team proudly installs James Hardie fiber cement siding, which is North America’s leading manufacturer of the material.
Our customers love James Hardie siding because of its durability. Unlike other siding materials, HardiePlank is designed to withstand weather extremes and it’s resistant to fire, pests, rot, and more. Beyond that, it’s a low-maintenance material and available in a variety of styles and colors. What’s not to love?
