Summer Projects That Can Improve The Return on Investment on Your Home

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Deciding on what home improvements offer the greatest return on investment is key when deciding which projects to undertake.

Summertime in Calgary is a great time to consider investing some time and effort in to outdoor projects that will not only add value to your home but also increase its curb appeal. In a city like Calgary where warm months are far and between, it is important to maximize your time on the right projects. We have included a list of 4 outdoor home improvements below that we recommend for your summer home improvement project! 

1)    Building Or Upgrading a Patio or Deck:









Not only does a patio or deck contribute greatly to the visual appeal of the outdoor space of your home and make the perfect area to host guests. It can also add to the resale value of your home. If you do not currently have a patio or deck, be prepared to research and plan what materials you would like to use and the building requirements for your area.

If your existing patio or deck is beginning to look aged and weathered, this might be the time to consider re-paint or re-finishing it. Focus on a neutral stain tone or colour that will complement the exterior of the home.

2)    Landscaping Your Property









An excellent way to instantly enhance your properties curb appeal is to have it landscaped. Whether its adding a few flower beds to your yard, a full garden, trees or even a pond or waterfall, landscaping can maximize the desirability of your home. The best way to leave a lasting first impression with prospective home buyers is to make them want to stop and view your property. Landscaping is great at achieving these results and showing off your home.

3)    Replace or Build a Fence

Having a fence on your property increases its feeling of privacy, making you feel both more safe and secure. Ensure that your fence is not only sturdy but also is visually attractive and compliments your outdoor space.

4)    Re-Shingling Your Roof

A home with a strong, durable roof is very important in a city such as Calgary, where we have long winters with extreme conditions. If your roof is showing lots of wear and tear or worse signs of water seepage, we recommend you contact a qualified roofing contractor. If you are planning to tackle this job yourself, make sure you are knowledgeable and experienced as this is a repair that is not suited for your average joe.

We hope that you find these tips useful. We look forward to hearing how your summer home projects turn out. If you are looking to sell your property, or are curious to know what the value could be, or if you are interested in additional home tips, please Contact Us directly.
