Out with the old, in with the new! This phrase may mean various things for different people when the new year starts. But at Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville, we’d like to encourage homeowners to find ways to reinvent the spaces in their homes to help them become more productive and more comfortable.
Many studies show that remodeling projects have made homeowners generally more content to be in their homes. We couldn’t agree more as we’ve seen several of our clients look at their homes in a different light after installing new replacement windows. To help you get started with your home upgrades for 2020, here are some home improvement ideas that you might want to consider for the new year.
If you want to start with a quick and affordable project, a smart thermostat installation might just be perfect for you. It only takes 30 minutes or less on average. But although it may not be considered a major upgrade, it can make a big difference in your home, especially to your energy bills.
Upgrading your windows can offer several benefits whether you’re looking to sell or remodel your home. In the real estate market, energy-efficient windows are known for being an attractive feature for potential homebuyers so they’re a good investment to boost the value of your home.
And, if you’re simply thinking of remodeling your home, you can enjoy energy savings through energy-efficient windows. Make sure you’re doing business with a trustworthy window company. Check your contractors’ qualifications as well as the warranties they offer. At Renewal by Andersen of Nashville, you can rest assured that your new windows will last a long time. Our window products come with reliable warranties, and our window installers are trained and highly skilled professionals.
Water Heater Upgrade
Water heaters often take up a huge portion of your energy costs. By switching to a more energy-efficient water heater, you can expect long-term energy savings for your home. Of course, don’t forget to consult experts regarding the best type of heating system for your home. Getting the wrong model or type of heater may not be able to give you the results you expect. Make your expectations and requirements clear so that your contractor can properly guide you through the most suitable options.
Create a more seamless transition from the outside to the inside of your home by building a mudroom. This project is quite flexible so you can do it with light or heavy construction depending on the design you want. Adding a mudroom is generally recommended for families, but it can still prove to be a convenient feature for a single person who has a lot of gear to keep organized.
Deck or Patio
Wondering what to do with your outdoor space? Whether you have a small or large space to work with, you can certainly build a deck or patio to liven up your outdoor area. This kind of project will require detailed planning and maybe some permits so make sure to work with a dependable contractor. Typically deck or patio construction can be completed over the weekend so it’s perfect for those who have limited time for remodeling projects.
