When homeowners start looking for home improvement projects that increase resale value of their homes, they may be surprised at which products give the most bang for their buck. Experts say adding new fiber cement board siding to the home may be the best way to increase this value, with close to 90% return on investment. Although replacing siding in St. Paul may not be the most eye-catching or exciting home improvement project, it can be the most valuable.
It is also believed that consumers value new St. Paul siding over interior home improvement projects like painting or upgraded bathrooms, although homeowners have a tendency to lean toward those projects in preference.
“In today’s buyers’ market, sellers know they have to go the extra mile to attract buyers, but often times the improvements made don’t deliver a higher sale price and the money put into improvements is lost,” said P.J. Rosch, senior product manager for James Hardie Building Products, which first introduced fiber-cement board siding to the U.S. in the early 1990s.
Fiber-cement products are a durable, low-maintenance alternative to wood and vinyl. They’re also very strong and nearly bullet-proof, as they’re highly resistant to fire, wind, insects, impact, and moisture.
When consumers are choosing where to spend renovating or remodeling dollars, there’s no doubt that new siding should be the priority, especially since it carries a host of passive benefits with it.
