If you’re thinking about remodeling this spring, it’s important to remember that no matter how great your house looks, if the bones are bad, the rest of the house isn’t worth a whole lot. And while investing in a fancy steam shower or a master bedroom remodel might sound enticing, there are few other improvements you should worry about taking care of first.

At Kiser Construction, we know bells and whistles are always the most attractive improvements on every homeowner’s remodeling wishlist. But we also know that many of those upgrades don’t deliver appreciable returns when it comes time to sell. To help you make a smart investment into your home, we’ve listed five home upgrades that offer the highest return on investment below. 

Roof Replacement

According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), putting a new roof on your home can net you a return of 109%. That means that, unlike most home improvements, you can actually make a profit on a roof replacement when you sell your home. Just make sure you know what to look for in a reputable roofing contractor to ensure the final product meets the highest quality standard.

Siding Replacement

Putting new siding on your house is likely to net you a 70% return on investment. But depending on the type of siding you select, your ROI may be even higher than that. Steel, fiber cement, and faux stone veneer all offer impressive returns. Wood, vinyl, and aluminum siding will still yield appreciable returns, but just not as high. If you’re curious about what it might cost to replace the cladding on your house, get in touch with a reputable siding contractor to get a project estimate.

Deck Construction

Hiring deck contractors to build you a quality patio area in your backyard will deliver an ROI of approximately 76%-83%. This particular addition might not be high on your to-do list, but research doesn’t lie: prospective buyers are clearly looking for homes where they can enjoy entertaining outdoors. 

New Entry Door

When it comes to selling a house, curb appeal is critical, and your entry door plays a major role in the impression your home makes on prospective buyers. That’s why upgrading your main entry door is one of the highest ROI home improvements you can make. On average, new entry doors recoup about 76% of their investment, and the best part here is that they’re relatively inexpensive. To find out what it’ll likely cost you to put a new front door on your home, get in touch with a window and door contractor to get an estimate. 

Minor Bathroom Remodel

Hiring bathroom remodeling contractors to complete a few minor upgrades to your washroom can net you a return of about 70%. So what do minor upgrades entail? Generally, you’ll want to focus on the following areas:

●        New flooring

●        New mirror

●        New fixtures, faucets, drawer pulls, etc.

●        New toilet

●        New tile or countertop

If you’re not certain what you want or need, it’s always a good idea to sit down with a reputable remodeling contractor to plan things out. If you’re only in the market for minor improvements, the pros can point in the direction of upgrades with the highest ROI.
