1. Garage Door Replacements

One of the main pieces of the home that can take a beating is the garage door. It is used on a daily basis, can be damaged by severe weather, or other means. It is important to consider a replacement depending on the style, type, and look of the current door. When it comes to garage door replacement costs, it’s important to know what you’re looking at.

The cost to replace your door depends on the style of door you want and installation. There are several types of doors such as aluminum, steel, fiberglass, or faux wood. These can range from as long as $600 upwards of $4,500.  The style of door you choose also impacts the cost. You could be looking at anywhere from a custom door starting at $600 to a Carriage door that could cost upwards of $13,000.

This beautiful addition to the outside of your home comes with a variety of benefits to encourage the installation.

Homeowners also love the fact that this is highly rated for fire safety. The materials utilized are more fire-resistant than traditional types of siding materials. If you live in an area prone to severe weather, this is a great addition as it is a weather-resistant siding.

If you choose this route to go when it comes to siding, you’ll also notice that it is highly consistent with color throughout the entire range of options.

3. Slate Tiled Roof

One of the many ways homeowners are improving their residence today is with a slate tiled roof. This beautiful addition not only helps to keep your home insulated but also increases its value.

Homeowners also love that this roofing material does not require a special substructure to be put in. If you ever need to get on the roof or have someone do it for you, there’s no worry about the tiles breaking. 

4. Wallpaper

For years wood paneling was the way to go when building homes. However, there are many homeowners who still have paneling that want to modernize the look of the home while increasing the value. One way to do that is with wallpaper over paneling. You can choose from a variety of colors, styles, and designs to help you update the look while keeping the original wood as well.

Doing this on your own may seem like a daunting task. However, it can be done with a little elbow grease and time. You’ll start by preparing and priming the wood. Take out any nails or fill holes that you find in the paneling. Prime the wood with a top-quality primer suitable for installing wallpaper.

Cut the wallpaper to fit the wall you’re working on and attach it with the proper wallpaper tools. Make sure to choose a high-quality wallpaper to cover the paneling securely and give you a smooth finish overall. You’re going to love the life it brings with one simple step.

When it comes to upgrading your home, these current trends are a great way to do just that. Take time to discover the many ideas that could help you to not only bring fresh life to your residence but increase your property value as well.
