According to Money.com, the most popular home improvement projects aren’t as expensive as you might think.
If you’re a homeowner, and you’ve been chomping at the bit to begin your home renovations, we can help!
Here are the 10 most popular renovation projects in the USA:
1 Replacing floors & ceilings
A room’s floor or ceiling can make or break its entire vibe… which might be why carpeting, flooring, paneling and ceiling tile replacement was the most popular project among homeowners in the past few years. With help from a skilled general contractor, replacing floors is now easier than ever.
2 Sinks & plumbing fixtures
A total bathroom renovation might sound nice, but replacing an old, dated fixture might be all the work you need. Ditching outdated fixtures is one of the most affordable ways to change the look of your bathroom.
3 New kitchen appliances
The most affordable renovation on this list is adding or replacing your kitchen’s built-in dishwasher or garbage disposal.
4 Replacing doors & windows
While trends come and go, door and window renovations are always in demand. Replacing an old entry door with a new one recoups about 75% of its initial outlay at sale, according to the Remodeling report. A new window will change the look of your home, as well as minimize heating costs.
5 Water heaters
The most popular projects aren’t always the most exciting… but many, like replacing an old water heater, are necessary. If your water heater is more than five years old, you may want to move this up on your to-do list.
6 Roof replacement
Roof replacement is one of those renovations homeowners should not try to attempt themselves. Replacing an old roof is generally more involved than other outdoor maintenance projects, and it’s unavoidable if you live in your home long enough. It’s crucial to have a trusted roofing general contractor to help with this project.
7 Landscape projects
A home’s lawn and landscape might not seem as important as the roof or water heater, but homeowners thinking of selling would be wise to not underestimate the added value of a nice yard.
8 Air conditioning
Temperature control was a top issue for survey takers. Energy bills are easier to manage now with SmartHome technology.
9 Minor bathroom remodels
Bathroom renovations can cost a fortune, but most homeowners have learned to be frugal. Smaller more inexpensive bathroom remodels can be done by professional general contractors for a fraction of the cost.
10 Electrical work
Replacing electrical wiring, fuse boxes or breaker switches is often under-appreciated home renovation. It’s easy to forget about electrical wiring… until it isn’t working the way it should.
