Two Home Improvement Projects to Increase the Value of Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, May 25, 2011

With the difficult conditions and volatility of the real estate market, investing in home improvement projects to keep your home in its best shape will give you the upper hand in a housing market where competition is fierce. For the home seller, there are a couple of tasks that you can take care of to significantly add value to your home.

Focus on the curb appeal
The front of your home is the first thing that can be seen from street. It is important to put effort into updating this part of your home. Assess your property from the street. One great improvement option is the installation of copper gutters.  For your home, only the best will do.  Copper gutters are a popular choice for new and remodeled homes, and they are growing in demand because they look beautiful and they are unique and durable.   But most of all they are also very low maintenance.

Improve your home's energy efficiency

Those home improvement tasks that are focused on improving the energy efficiency of your home will turn in significant gains with reduced energy consumption and lower energy bills. For instance, you can reduce your energy loss and raise the level of comfort in your home by improving the insulation quality of your home.

By improving your home’s insulation, you can also extend the life of your home itself, reducing repair and maintenance costs. To improve home energy efficiency the “thermal envelope” must be improved. This is the barrier to winter heat loss and summer heat gain, which protects and separates the indoor living space from the outdoor climate.  Insulation is the heart of the thermal envelope, so improving insulation is the first step.

Copper Gutters are Beautiful and High Performing

There are so many reasons to consider copper when you are considering gutters for your home. Visually copper gutters are very versatile, they look great and fit in visually on any style home, from period Victorian homes to contemporary.

Copper gutters are one of the most durable forms of gutters on the market. When you are thinking of installing copper gutters on your property, consider Custom Insulation Company.

Copper Gutters Have an Exclusive Look

If it rains at your house, you need a gutter system. Gutters prevent water damage from the roof to the basement. One type of gutter that is gaining in popularity is copper gutters. At Custom Insulation we believe copper trumps the rest.

Copper gutters will never rust or rot away; whatever the weather this gutter will withstand it. Copper gutters add a distinctive style and flare to your house which is different than your standard gutters. Their style is noticeable and recognizable and they add a visual appeal that can only be accomplished with copper.

Because it is more valuable, copper adds a higher value to your home. Also, they are more easily maintained than aluminum or vinyl. Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green over time unless you treat them. There are ways to preserve the shine with sealants, but it is not necessary. And, on the other hand, many people like and prefer the greenish look, particularly in older homes found in Worcester and in other parts of Massachusetts. Copper has an exclusive look.

Copper gutters are an excellent addition and investment for the exterior of any home. The many benefits: sustainable building material, cosmetic enhancement and increased home value, and low maintenance; mean that you're going to pay a bit more for copper gutters. The positive side is that you will be getting a product that lasts longer and is easier to maintain. Call Custom Insulation for more information.
