Be Smart about your Home Improvement projects


During the time you’ve been sheltering at home, you’ve probably had a chance to look around. You’ve noticed some home improvements that are necessary, others that you meant to do but forgot about, and some you aren’t quite sure you can afford.  While at home for such an extended period, hopefully, you’ve taken the time to make a list of what really needs to be done and what you’d like to get done.

Of course, you have probably also noticed with more people at home using more energy, your bills have increased. So, the most important home improvement projects that should be on the top of your list are the ones that will help you to save now and in the future.

Let’s look at ways to reduce the bill and some home improvements to consider.


If you have old windows, it’s probably time to replace them. Today’s windows are durable, low maintenance, and more energy-efficient. Replacing your windows will also increase your home’s value.

Anlin windows are a great example of an energy-efficient product that will help reduce your cooling and heating costs. With the new technology and more color and style options today, this makes windows a top priority on the home improvement list.


Replacing your entry door will immediately enhance your home’s curb appeal. Make sure you select a door that is durable, energy-efficient and fits your home’s architectural style. The durability of the door affects the security the door provides, while the material you select will increase the energy efficiency.

Whether you are replacing an entry door, a sliding door, or a patio door, ThermaTru is a recommended brand that offers high quality, energy-efficient doors with plenty of styles to choose from. When you are looking to replace your door, reduce your energy bill, increase curb appeal, or protect your home against the elements, don’t forget to add doors to your list, too.


You’ve been staring at your home wondering what would have the most impact or change. Well, replacing the siding of your home can really be a good return on your investment. It can enhance the curb appeal, increase the value of your home, and make it more energy-efficient.

With the right siding, like James Hardie fiber cement siding, you can count on a long-lasting, durable product that holds up to the elements. James Hardie is noncombustible and requires little upkeep.

To sum it all up, replacing your windows, changing your doors, and adding new siding are all home improvement projects worth investing in. They may seem like big expenses, but what they all have in common is that they will make your home more energy-efficient, increase your home’s curb appeal and increase the value of your home.
