Exterior Renovations That Add Value To Your Home!

Updated: May 22, 2021

If you are hoping to increase your home's curb appeal while adding value to your home, but you aren't quite sure which improvements will add the maximum value to your home, you have come to the right place.

Below is a list of exterior home improvements (and their associated ROI) that will add value to your home and add appeal home buyers are looking for!

But first, why exterior home improvements you ask?

Home buyers will often make a decision whether or not to purchase a house in the first 15 seconds of seeing it, so improving the exterior adds tremendous value and can help sell your home more quickly!

Realtors such as Herman Landon in the St. Louis area are finding that beautiful homes are not only selling faster, but exterior design improvements such as roofing, siding, windows, outdoor gathering spaces and more are adding up to 150% ROI!

So, if you want a beautifully designed house now while increasing the value of your home for resale tomorrow, explore these exterior renovation improvements outlined below.

Roofing - 68%

The integrity of a roof is paramount when it comes to protecting your investment and a dated roof is not only an eyesore, but it's also a liability!

It probably goes without saying (but I feel like saying it anyway), if a leak were to develop in your roof, not only would you be looking at replacing the roof but you may have to make some other unnecessary repairs to the underlayment, structure or drywall as water intrusion is a costly one.

The national figures for a roof replacement according to Remodeling Magazine is approximately $22k with a home value increase of $15.5k (68% return).

While these are fairly reliable figures, I believe they are undervalued because there is no tangible dollar value for the comfort of knowing your roof is secure and your investment is protected.
