Looking to sell your home, but don’t know what projects will give you the best return for your investment? Look no further—we have the top three home improvement projects that will give you the most bang for your buck right here:

1. Replace your Vinyl Siding
By replacing your siding and giving your home a fresh new look (and perhaps a fresh new color), you will not only make your neighbors jealous, but siding replacement runs, on average for Grand Rapids homeowners, an 81.8%* return at resale. That’s nearly unbeatable!

2. Spruce up your Windows!
Installing new windows will give you short term and long-term payoffs. In the short term, you’ll keep out bugs and keep your heating and cooling from escaping. In the long run, when you sell your home, the average recoup rate for wood window replacement is 71.9%*, and vinyl window replacement has an average of a 72.5%* recoup rate. Not too shabby for an easy replacement!

3. Top it all off with a new roof!
A new roof, especially with a stylish new color or dimensional shingles, will change your house for the better. Running at a return on investment rate of 69.2%*, a new roof is a smart investment to make, especially if you are putting your house on the market!

When you are selling your home, there are so many things to consider. Exterior improvements are great investments, and easy choices to make. Call Irish Roofing today to fix up your home, and to guarantee a great ROI!
