Five Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home!

Five Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home!

In addition to keeping your trees healthy and yard looking great, here are other tips that can
highly increase your property value.

New Roof
Did you know that the first structure that an appraiser will look at is your roof? A roof that needs
repair will stop the sale of a house in its tracks. Conversely, a new roof will increase the home’s
value by $12,000! And it’s no secret that new roofing attracts buyers. A new roof gives them
peace of mind that they will be free of that repair. We know a brand new roof can be a costly
investment. However, you can recover around sixty-three percent of the installation cost through
the elevated home value. For expert roofing in Connecticut, check out Knockout Roofing!

Maintain Your Gutters
Gutters greatly prolong the lifespan of a house. They protect your home from the harmful effects
of water corrosion. These effects include a leaking roof, foundation damage, basement and yard
flooding, infestation of pests, mold and mildew, and much more. Undoubtedly, these problems
lead to a significant decrease in home value. While installing and having gutters regularly
cleaned may seem daunting, the long term savings is well worth it! If you’re a Connecticut
homeowner or commercial business in need of new gutters or gutter cleaning, Knockout Roofing
can help!

Spray Foam Insulation
Insulation increases property value because it helps your home go green! Your property value
will go up, but your energy bills will go down. Furthermore, choosing spray foam insulation over
cellulose and fiberglass is the way to go. The inert polymer that spray foam insulation is made of
provides an indefinite lifespan. Spray foam keeps your carbon footprint small, saving you up to
fifty percent on monthly energy bills. Are you in need of insulation? Contact our friends at

Keep Your Driveway in Good Condition
Your driveway is part of your curb appeal. Therefore, keeping it free of cracks and potholes is
important. Make sure your driveway drains properly and is not sinking in anywhere. The
majority of home-buyers will not even consider buying a house unless it has a well-kept
driveway. We can help you keep your driveway in pristine condition because your favorite tree
service also provides expert driveway repair and driveway resurfacing!

Build a Fire pit
A quick and easy way to add value to your home is installing a fire pit. Buyers LOVE them! The
return on investment for fire pits is upwards of 70%. However, if you’re able to install it
yourself, you’ll see that percentage increase even more. Just make sure to build your fire pit at
least 10 feet away from any structure. And when you’re in need of some firewood, call Eric’s
Firewood!
