Add a Small Deck to Improve Curb Appeal

Replace Your Front Door for a Fresh Look

Update your entry door for a high-quality, good looking investment that averages a 70-percent ROI. Once you shop around to find the perfect door for your home’s aesthetic, installation is pretty straightforward.

The most important advice you can get for a DIY door replacement is to purchase a door that fits your current frame. After that, it’s as easy as using the right tools. If you want to recoup the maximum amount of money from this investment, choose a durable material like steel.

Use Stone or Brick Veneer in Place of Standard Vinyl Siding

White or natural stone and brick veneer mimic the look of the real thing at a fraction of the cost. One of the top things a buyer looks for is high-end, unique touches like this. Consider replacing part of your vinyl with stone or brick on either the interior or exterior of your home.

Popular spots for veneer are the fireplace, front walkway or mantle. If you’re worried it might not pay off, just consider these numbers — this simple cosmetic improvement will get you almost 95-percent ROI when you sell your home. It really doesn’t get better than that.
