How to Change Your Thinking about Home Improvements

Many Twin Cities homeowners live for years in a get-by, make-do home, and suddenly decide to tackle home improvements to boost home value for resale. Then the new buyers enjoy all the benefits, while the previous homeowners simply move on without ever luxuriating in an upgraded kitchen, fresh siding or other home improvements. At Midwest Exteriors Plus, we hope we can improve your thinking about home improvements.

Procrastination

Home improvement contractors often find that homeowners procrastinate and puzzle over a home improvement project, never quite sure if “now” is the time.

Consider what you pass up when you put off remodeling, fresh siding, or a new roof. You live with what you have, which may look a bit … worn. You rob yourself of pride of place, never truly enjoying your home but merely tolerating it.

Think of how much more enjoyment you will have from living in your home when it has a fresh, vibrant new look. From something as simple as new gutters to a complete bath and kitchen remodeling, a home improvement project also improves your life.

Still, with home improvements, Twin Cities homeowners often say the only thing holding them back is not the interest in a new deck or replacement windows, but the money.

Financial Freak-out

Twin Cities home improvement contractors have heard this many times: “We want new siding but we can’t afford it.” In many ways, you cannot afford not to get that new siding. Consider issues from old siding:

  • Water infiltration
  • Air infiltration
  • Energy loss
  • Cracked, peeling or rotted siding
  • Insect infestation

Affording to keep your home intact is a fundamental part of home ownership. Good contractors, like Midwest Exteriors Plus, can work with you to arrange good financing terms. At Midwest, we offer a convenient “No interest, 12 months same as cash” plan that can get you that remodeling project or new roof now.

Your Home

Why not make home improvements now, while you can live in your home and enjoy them? Go ahead and boost curb appeal and resale value, but live with your wise decision, instead of giving it to the next home buyer.
