Home Renovation Projects That Add Value To Your Home

Your home is most likely the biggest single investment you’ll make in your lifetime.  Your home is your sanctuary, the place where you relax on the weekend and where the kids can always call home.

Investing money to renovate your home is a great way to further invest in your biggest asset  Not only does it allow you to improve and customize your home the way you want, it also increases the value of this asset when the time comes to sell one day.

Since we’re basement contractors, of course we believe that renovating your basement is a great investment for a number of reasons.  First, it can create additional living space in your home without the need to add an extension and go through red tape permit hell.  Second, it gives you a number of options like creating a rental space or an in-law suite for aging parents.  You can also make it the perfect family room, complete with fireplace, large screen tv and sectional sofa for the perfect movie night.

There are hundreds of different types of renovations in and around the home, the graphic below has a good list of the different types of renovations you can consider.

Increased value of renovations in the home

As you can see, there are lots of different renovations you can do in your home.  Some improve the livability of the home, others are structural repairs and others are more cosmetic in nature.  Some improvements, like a new bathroom, kitchen or basement, tend to recoup most of the investment when it comes time to sell.  Even something simple like spending a few hundred on landscaping improvements can add thousands to the value of your home.  Getting a home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC) to pay for these renovations can be a great way to fund these renovations.

Basement Waterproofing

Our basement leaked! Of course . . . we bought a 100 year old house! But my office needed to be in the basement permanently. I interviewed 10 different companies until we decided on the Steinbergs and their crew at Nu-Site! They are professional, reliable, courteous, honest, and they really make an effort to communicate with the client about every step of the process.

Foundation and Waterproofing Repairs

After several years of chronic leaks, we decided to have our basement waterproofed once and for all. The team over at Nusite was professional, answered my questions during the project and stayed within their quoted price....which is always a concern for me when working with contractors. Great job overall

Basement Waterproofing

Had several cracks in my basement wall and they would leak whenever we had a heavy rain. It started about a year and a half ago and seems to have gotten worse over the past 6 months. I tried having my neighbor seal it, but it started leaking again within a few weeks. Called several waterproofing companies and got several quotes. Finally went with Nusite contractors for the job. They gave a reasonable quote and I liked the guy that came by for the estimate. They stayed within budget and cleaned up before they left. It's been almost 3 months now and it seems to be working great.
