4 Resolutions for Your Home this Year

If the past couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that we can expect to spend a fair bit of time in our homes for the foreseeable future. There’s never been a better time to give your home a little extra TLC to improve your comfort level this year. From big renovations to luxurious upgrades, these home resolutions will get you ready to enjoy your abode for years to come!

  1. Finally take on one major update.

Maybe you’ve been putting off replacing your dilapidated roof, or you’ve been ignoring rotting siding. Whatever it may be, this is the year to tackle a big project. Rather than waiting for major issues to arise, commit to these renovations when you’re able to budget and plan for them. 

A couple of the more costly (and sometimes less glamorous) home updates include a new roof and replacing windows. Though these home improvement projects may not always make the most significant visual impact, they’ll undoubtedly have a positive effect on your bank account in the long run! Whether you have costly water damage from a leaking roof or rotting around your windows, the longer you wait to fix problems, the more expensive the repairs will be. Not sure if your roof needs to be replaced? Read this blog post to learn what to look for.

  1. Improve your home’s energy efficiency.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you lose 30% of your heating and cooling through your windows. Consider on top of that, old, damaged, or improperly installed windows, and that percentage skyrockets. What’s more, energy.gov states, “of the $2,000 the average American spends paying for energy annually, $200 to $400 could be going to waste from drafts, air leaks around openings, and outdated heating and cooling systems.” Though replacing your windows is a more costly project to take on, the cost of energy-efficient windows will ultimately pay for themselves in the form of reduced energy bills each month. Additionally, those new windows will increase the overall value of your home and result in a higher resale price point.

At All States Home Improvement, we install Elements windows by SoftLite. Due to their high standards for energy efficiency, air and water penetration, and durability, they are the highest-performing window in the industry. Whatever windows you choose, the important thing is to check for industry certifications to ensure their energy-efficiency level.

6 Reasons to Choose Vinyl Windows

  1. Invest in a spa-worthy master bathroom.

With more time being spent at home, we’re all longing for the comfort of a luxury hotel bathroom.  A gorgeous walk-in shower, hardware upgrades, and updated color schemes make a world of difference in making your bathing experience more enjoyable. The good news is, with the help of All States Home Improvement, you can transform your bathroom into an oasis this year! Whether you want to upgrade your master bath for more time at home or convert it for better accessibility, we have you covered.

  1. Give your home character with charming curb appeal.

An attractive exterior makes coming home that much more enjoyable. Improving your home’s curb appeal with new siding, a colorful front door, and a little landscaping can increase your home’s value by up to 15%, according to Better Home and Gardens Magazine. 

Whether you choose a bold red door or a sophisticated door with intricate carvings, your front door is the ultimate greeting for your guests. Not only will a new door say “welcome” to visitors, but it will also improve your home’s energy efficiency.
