Tax day was this week and while many retailers are offering tax free purchases on everyday items, we at A. Caspersen Company like to take a long haul approach that will not only help you save on utilities today but will also offer up potential long-term gains by increasing the equity of your home. The tried and tested axiom that “you shouldn’t work for money but let your money work for you” goes hand in hand with the idea that it is better to work smarter and not harder. This year is no different and here is why A. Caspersen Company encourages you to consider building your investment by reinvesting your tax return into a home renovation today.
Your house is one of your largest assets, so why not make it your dream home. Our team specializes in exterior home improvements, and when we are completed with your home improvements, not only will you smile every time you pull into your driveway, but you will also be increasing the value of your home. New windows, siding, roofing, and doors increase your curb appeal but also increase energy efficiency which you will save on the long run with utility bills. In addition, all of our products are maintenance-free (besides the occasional cleaning) and so you will never spend another dime or any time on painting again.
Let’s get to some facts, below are the results of the 2018 Remodeling Cost versus Value Report for the Greater Akron, OH area showing the percentage of the cost you will recoup when you go to sell your home:
Vinyl Window Replacement: 74%
Entry door (Steel): 91%
So this spring, let’s take what Uncle Sam has given back and invest in our homes, in our planet and most importantly, ourselves.
