Cleaning up on spring home improvement projects requires more effort than many homeowners anticipate.

Remodeling tends to pick up as the weather improves, and this year is no exception. During the second half of 2013, the National Association of Home Builders’ Remodeling Market Index, which measures how busy contractors are, was at its highest level since the spring of 2004.

When the report was released in late January, remodelers were expecting an even busier spring, with more saying they had been called to bid on a job or were already committed to a project.

Which home improvement projects pay off?

Project Job Cost Resale Value Portion Recouped
Entry door replacement (steel) $1,162 $1,122 96.60%
Minor kitchen remodel $18,856 $15,585 82.70%
Window replacement (wood) $10,926 $8,662 79.30%
Basement remodel $62,834 $48,777 77.60%
Major kitchen remodel $54,909 $40,732 74.20%
Bathroom remodel $16,128 $11,688 72.50%
