3 Home Improvements that Increase Home Value

Fall is a great time to upgrade your Blacksburg, VA home to make it a more comfortable, functional place to live. Some home improvements will even increase your home’s value. Before taking on home improvement projects, talk to an agent from Dove Insurance Agency to see how those improvements will affect the price of your property and home insurance coverage. Here are a few ideas for remodeling jobs that will increase your home’s value.

New Roof

If you own an older home, chances are your roof has quite a bit of wear and tear. Replacing your roof will not only provide greater protection for your home, but it will also increase its value. You can have peace of mind knowing you have a solid roof over your head to endure whatever weather comes your way in the years to come. 

Remodel Kitchen

Kitchen remodeling is another project that can raise the value of your home, especially if you use high-end materials in your remodeling project. Kitchens are popular places in most homes, where families like to gather. Upgrading your cabinets, counters, lights or floors can make your kitchen a more attractive (and functional) environment. If you like to cook, a kitchen upgrade will definitely raise your spirits while preparing meals for your family.

Replacing Windows

Putting in new energy-efficient windows will improve your home’s appearance, boost safety and security, and increase your home’s value. New windows will eliminate drafts so you can maintain a comfortable home temperature year-round without breaking the bank. You’ll also appreciate the security that new windows can provide in protecting your family against break-ins.

Don’t forget to add these projects to your home insurance policy upon completion, so they will be included in your coverage. To update your home insurance, contact Dove Insurance Agency in Blacksburg, VA.
