3 Ways to Protect Your Most Important Investment – Your Home
The house you live in is your home and that is your most important investment. To protect that investment, you have to maintain your home. The better maintained it is the longer it will last, all while looking its best. It will also improve the resale value of the house if it is well kept.
Three Ways to Protect Your Home’s Value
There are several things you can do to protect your investment. Basic maintenance is one aspect of that protection. Additionally, there are a few exterior elements of the house that need to be maintained and possibly updated over the years to protect your home the best.
The main three exterior improvement projects you can tackle are siding, windows, and insulation. When you invest in high quality products, they have a high ROI and a superior performance. They also improve the curb appeal of your home and will make a big difference in its appearance.
Additionally, these three updates will increase the energy efficiency of your home. You will notice the increased efficiency in your reduced utility bills right away. Over time, they will pay for themselves, and they will add valuable protection to your home right away.
To see how these improvements will protect you home and investment, we want to take a closer look at the three elements:
1. James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding
James Hardie fiber cement is the best siding on the market. These superior products have a huge ROI and last many years. On top of that, James Hardie offers industry leading warranties. The siding comes with a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty.
This siding is extremely durable and resistant. These resistances will protect the outside of your home as well as the inside. Fiber cement is resistant to pests like insects, rot, mild, mildew, and impact damage, for example from hail. Furthermore, it will not add fuel to a fire as it will not burn.
When you have James Hardie fiber cement siding installed you have many options. The siding comes in a wide variety of styles and textures. Additionally, you have over 700 colors to choose from. This siding will raise the value of your home as well as its curb appeal.
Another huge advantage is that this siding requires very little maintenance. Between all of these factors James Hardie fiber cement protects your home and therefore your investment. It is definitely the siding we recommend most.
2. New Windows
When it comes to the energy efficiency of your home, new windows can make a huge difference. Especially when they are high-quality windows from top brands like Pella, Anderson, or Simonton. They will perform best and for the longest time.
Furthermore, new windows ensure that rain does not leak in and by doing so, they protect your home. Good windows also make it easier to regulate the temperature more effectively. In the winter they keep the cold air out and, in the summer, they keep the cool air from your AC in.
Additionally, new windows will reduce hot spots, drafts, and condensation. The increased efficiency will be noticeable in your energy bill right away. With these savings they will quickly pay for themselves, especially when they are fitted and installed correctly. Protecting your home and your investment by having high quality windows is always worth it.
3. Added Insulation
Installing insulation under your siding not only increases the energy efficiency of your home, it also adds an extra layer of protection against the elements. Between the two, it is well worth investing in installing insulation.
Insulation makes it easier to control the temperature inside your home. It drastically reduces drafts as well as noise pollution. Usually, you can choose between spray foam as well as fiberglass batts insulation.
Both kinds of insulation will increase the comfort in your home and we would be happy to explain the differences between them. Installing insulation makes most sense when replacing your siding so consider combining these two projects to protect your home.
