Over time, your home can start to show its age. And, as a homeowner, you might already be feeling the effects of that aging process. If you’ve noticed that your energy bill has skyrocketed and your property value has fallen, it may be time to think about tackling a few home improvement projects that can transform the look and feel of your home.
Invest in energy efficient windows
Old, drafty windows allow heat to escape from your home in the winter and cool air to escape in the summer. According to the US Department of Energy, most homes have air leaks and drafts that waste so much energy it's like leaving a window open in your home all year long. And your HVAC system is charging you overtime as it tries to keep up with those inefficient windows. Save yourself an extra chunk of change this year by making a smart investment; replace your old windows with superior energy efficient windows that will transform your home into one that is both comfortable and energy efficient.
Transform your home with a sunroom addition
If you're looking for a home improvement solution that adds flexible space, comfort and beauty to your home, you may want to consider adding a sunroom. A sunroom improves the feel of your entire home. Adding a sunroom onto your living room, kitchen or even master suite can open the flow of your home's floor plan, making your home feel more spacious and luxurious. The extra windows fill your home with invigorating natural light, creating a beautiful and inviting atmosphere. The abundance of windows and unique architectural features of a sunroom will lend easy elegance and invigorate your entire home.

Replace your home’s worn out siding
You and your neighbors see it every day, but when it comes to home improvement priorities, it doesn’t always get its due. It’s the siding on your home. While siding may not be at the top of your home improvement agenda, it’s incredibly important to the overall aesthetics, energy-efficiency and integrity of your home. Well-kept, high-quality siding significantly influences your home’s curb appeal, property value and, most importantly, protects your home from the elements—insulating it against extreme cold and heat, inclement weather, debris and pests. That’s why it’s important to invest in premium, ENERGY STAR rated vinyl siding that won’t rust, crack, peel or rot—even after years of use.
