The name of the game when it comes to home improvements that offer a solid return on your investment (ROI), are to stick with projects that people are most interested in when considering a home. Major enhancements such as replacing your old-fashioned home cladding with easy-to-care-for vinyl or Hardie® Plank cement board siding is one that homeowners expect, so it’s a no-brainer it’s at the top of the list. Replacement vinyl windows and a new roof round out the top three big ones that are most popular with homeowners.
With May being National Home Improvement Month, Belk Builders is thrilled to be a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), that is providing chapters and members with tools to get homeowners interested in remodeling this season. National Home Improvement Month is the perfect time to get ready and plan on those much-needed and typically put-off home enhancements that can actually improve your lifestyle. Who wants to deal with a water leaks, drafty windows and ancient siding? It makes your house look neglected, lowers its value and does nothing for curb appeal. Contractors like Belk Builders are busy helping families fulfill their dreams and increase the value of their homes, and our schedule is filling fast. With warm weather here, NOW is the time to tackle projects while the weather is cooperative and not too hot or cold! It’s important as a homeowner not to neglect your home and to take the necessary steps to not only maintain it, but also boost value whether you are selling now or in the future.
Siding replacement scores big on the 2016 Cost vs. Value report for the South Atlantic region which includes Charlotte and the surrounding area, with a nearly 80% return in value based on what you pay for it. Replacement windows and a roof are also sought after and you can expect to recoup over 70% of your dollars back when you tackle those projects. Though you may think a bathroom addition or a back-up power generator are important, most home buyers rank these two items fairly low on their list of desires and the ROI hovers in the measly 50% for these in comparison. So investing in these types of improvements that people actually want and expect is money wise!
Home improvement projects such as window, siding and roof replacements call for the expertise of a seasoned contractor and it’s not something a homeowner should tackle on their own.

Roofing, siding and replacement windows are not your average handyman type jobs, and they should be done by companies like Belk Builders that can back their work.
