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%|
|Major kitchen remodel||$54,909||$40,732||74.20%|
