5 Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value

5 Ways to Prep Your Home for Storm Season

Whether you’re planning to sell your home in the future or want to stay on top of ever-changing home trends, investing in your house has many benefits in the long run.

Here are a few simple cosmetic changes you can make to your home that will increase your home’s value so you can get a strong return on your biggest investment.

Cover up with a fresh coat of paint

Whether your home is looking worn down inside or out, painting over rough spots or entirely changing the color of a room can add a fresh, new home feeling to your existing space. Painting is an easy, cost-effective way to increase the future listing price of your home and help it gain value over time.

Invest in energy efficiency

Energy efficient features can have a serious impact on home value. Double-paned windows, attic insulation, smart technology and LED lighting are just a few ways to improve energy efficiency throughout your home.

White Oak is a trusted provider of high-quality replacement windows that help improve energy efficiency and add beauty and security to your home. With plenty of styles to choose from, you can select windows that fit your home’s aesthetic and give it the wow factor it needs. Plus, with our lifetime warranty, you can be sure that your investment is worthwhile.

Work on your landscaping

First impressions have a big impact on the value of your home. If you find yourself comparing your yard to your neighbors’, mulching, planting flowers, trimming bushes and even adding rocks around your property are affordable landscaping options that will enhance your home’s exterior. Don’t forget to maintain new landscaping once it’s added!

Keep up on maintenance and repairs

Even the smallest of repairs add up over time. Ignoring the growing list of small breaks and repairs can make your home look like it has been neglected, which will cause the value of your home to plummet. Walk around the inside and outside of your home, make a list of anything that needs repaired, and get them taken care of. Staying on top of routine maintenance will save you time and a headache down the road.

Upgrade exterior doors

Since the front of your house is the first thing people see, installing a more modern front door will contribute to the overall curb appeal of your home. Don’t forget about other exterior doors and your garage doors too! At White Oak, we offer a wide variety of exterior door options, including French doors, storm doors, sliding patio doors and more. Every door is cut to fit your home and comes with our industry-leading lifetime warranty.
