If you haven’t remodeled your home in over 10 years, then you are missing out on the latest trends and technology. Check out these carpentry upgrades you need to consider.
One of the most prominent carpentry upgrades that we see homeowners get is updating their exterior and interior doors. Newer doors have even more features like weatherproofing, UV protection, fireproofing, extra insulation and more. Plus, there are new designs, colors and styles to pick from as well. At Valor Home Services, we recommend and trust Pella doors.
The next most prominent carpentry upgrade that homeowners seek is window installation. Just like doors, windows have new features that you will want. Some of these aspects include UV protection, weatherproofing, scratch resistance, and more. At Valor Home Services, we recommend and trust Pella windows.
Deck, Patio or Sunroom
A carpentry upgrade that can significantly increase the value of your home is deck, patio or sunroom building. Large luxury decks, patios and sunrooms can increase your house’s value by up to 10%. Plus, who doesn’t like having an extra place to relax and soak up the sun?
More and more homeowners are upgrading their cabinets in their homes. These cabinet upgrades can happen in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and any extra storage space. Common ways to fix up your cabinets are through refinishing and staining, switching out the fixtures or updating the style.
Baseboards & Trim
Every five to ten years, you are going to want to update or repair the baseboards and trip on your home. Over the years, they experience extensive wear and tear, especially baseboards. Plus, giving them an update can help you determine if you want to switch up the color or design.
Posts & Fencing
An exterior home carpentry upgrade you should consider is posts and fencing. Over the years, your fences and porch posts experience wear and tear. If you do not update them, they will eventually rot away; therefore, decreasing your home’s curb appeal and overall value. In addition, if your home does not have fencing, it is a great way to not only increase the value of your home but also create privacy.
If you have lived in your home for over ten years and have never updated your mailbox, then now is the time to consider upgrading it. Just like everything else outside, it can experience wear and tear over the years. Plus, many older mailboxes do not include house numbers or have issues with opening and closing the door.
