Have you ever been in a situation when you considered remodeling your home, however, after sitting down and looking at the numbers, doing so seemed slightly too costly to justify the investment? We have good news for you – Remodeling and upgrading your home typically result in an increase in value but it’s important to note that not all remodeling projects will be worth the money.

Upgrading your home will not just be out-of-pocket expenses, it could also drain your home’s equity, if not done right. However, by doing the upgrades that will increase the value of your home you may realize a profit upon resale. Although you usually won’t be able to recoup the full amount spent, you’ll at least enjoy the added comfort from upgrading your home.

Contractor Quotes has made an info-graphic that looks at a range of popular remodeling projects and how much of your remodeling dollars you’ll recoup upon selling your home. These numbers are national averages and how much you can recoup will depend on several factors. For example, remodeling an old kitchen will relatively add more value than remodeling a newer kitchen, as the older kitchen would naturally be worth less to begin with.

There’s also list of things you need to be aware of with the different types of remodeling projects. For example, when replacing the siding on your house, if you’re considering changing the material, it’s important to know that different house siding materials require different amounts of maintenance. Therefore, you should choose a type of siding that doesn’t require a bigger effort than you are willing to put into it. The info-graphic talks about the most important things to be aware of with the different remodeling projects.

Reading through the whole info-graphic should hopefully leave you feeling more confident about undertaking the remodeling project you’ve been considering and just never got around to making a reality.
