Are you planning to make some improvements to your house? If you want to add significant value to your home while improving your family’s quality of life, there are several home improvements you should take into consideration.
Below are some helpful tips for home improvement projects that increase the value of your home.
WHICH HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS SHOULD YOU INVEST IN?
Replace your roof
When considering a home renovation, most people don’t think about the roof as one of the biggest factors in home resale value. While it can seem strange to think that roof value has that much effect, it really becomes clear why a new roof is so important.
If you try to sell your home, your potential buyers will be more confident if they know that they won’t have to worry about replacing the roof of their newly purchased home anytime in the near future. A new roof also eliminates any existing problems, such as high energy bills through heat loss, leakage issues…
Choose wisely the proper roofing material
Besides avoiding future problems, a new roof will add to the home’s curb appeal. With all of the different types of roofing materials available on the market to choose from, it can become really hard to select the perfect new roof for your home. Natural slate is a product with unmatchable technical properties that adapts to any project and style.
Buying a home with a CUPA PIZARRAS natural slate roof translates into unchanging appearance and an unmistakable personality. Roofing slates will increase your home's attractiveness on the market.
Improve the energy efficiency of your home
Energy efficiency has many benefits for homeowners. First, more efficiency means lower bills and lower cost of ownership. And greater energy efficiency translates to higher home value. This correlation is increasing over time: these days, buyers shop for homes with energy efficiency in mind.
The rainscreen cladding is considered to be the most efficient system to improve the energy efficiency. The combination of a ventilated system together with an insulation system gives numerous advantages in terms of thermal and acoustic properties. It avoids thermal bridges and condensation issues.
And there is no better solution that CUPACLAD. These natural slate rainscreen cladding systems are lightweight, easy to install and they help to create a modern building appearance. Moreover, as they are made with natural slate, CUPACLAD will enhance the value and beauty of any property, giving an unparalleled character to any project that will remain unaltered for many years
Become more sustainable with renewable energies
Installing a solar thermal system will automatically reduce your monthly energy bills and make your house cheaper to run, saving you money. But did you know that installing residential solar panels will also increase the value of your home? Actually it is one of the safest and wisest investments you can make.
But what happens if you don’t want your panels to be seen over your slate roof? The best solution is THERMOSLATE®. These roof solar collectors are the only solar system to use the properties of natural slate, converting sunlight to energy to produce heating, hot water or for pool heating. Besides, they are completely undetectable once installation is complete!
A system made up of 5 THERMOSLATE® collectors generates an average power of 4,000 W. This power covers the energy needs of a 4-person home, whatever the climate zone.
