In general terms, remodeling is a very good investment. Your family will be more comfortable and happier and you will maintain or increase the value of your home.

For most families, their home is their single largest financial investment. Remodeling protects and adds to the value of that investment. The smartest investments will be those remodeling projects that make the house more comfortable, more energy-efficient and more up-to-date.

Kitchens and bathrooms that are functional, up-to-date, and environmentally friendly are important to many home buyers. Your remodeling activities can enhance the appeal of your home if you pay attention to the entry or entrance foyer and to the exterior of the house (curb appeal).
