Fall is here and it’s a great time for home improvement projects.
Have you been thinking about a home improvement project? If so, we think this is the perfect time to move on it, because a number of great factors are in place. The first factor is the time of year. Late September and early October can offer some perfect weather in the Tri-state, making for the perfect time to work and upgrade areas of your home. It’s also two months before Thanksgiving and three before Christmas. There’s plenty of time to make a mess and have the house back in order before family arrives.
This time of year is also perfect for projects that will make your home energy-efficient. The cold weather is a ways off, but it is coming. Heating bills are often dreaded in the winter. Electric, oil and gas prices go up and so do utility bills. But many home improvement projects can help cut those bills down, while adding value to your home.
Rising Real Estate Prices Mean Lots of Equity
Everyone has heard about the hot real estate market. The greater Hagerstown, MD market is strong and it is tight, meaning there is high demand and limited inventory. This means that your property value is likely increasing every day right now. This means you probably have plenty of equity. This also means you can probably take some cash out of your investment and re-invest it in upgrades to your home. Some upgrades — like a remodeled bathroom or kitchen — can add more value than they cost. Other upgrades — like replacement windows, exterior doors, heating system, etc… — will save dollars for years to come.
Types of Home Improvement Projects by MTB
MTB Windows and More home improvement experts specialize in replacement windows, replacement exterior doors, roof replacements and more.
The MTB professionals suggest that you take advantage of the cool fall nights to inspect your windows and exterior doors. As the air moves, inspect the edges for air leaks. Tissue paper can be used if it is difficult to feel the air.
How old are those gateways to the outside? Do they seal tight when closed? Do your windows and doors feel more like the indoor or outdoor temperature on the hot and cold days of the year? The answers should tell you whether or not you are wasting valuable energy through your windows and doors. You may be losing so much heat and air conditioning that the savings from replacement windows and doors may quickly pay for the upgrade. After a few years, you may need decide what to do with the extra money in your household budget.
High-Quality Replacement Windows and Doors
MTB uses high-quality products, like Andersen Windows and Therma-Tru Entry Doors, because of the superior ratings for efficiency and security. You can read about the quality of the products, but MTB can also boast about the professional installation services. Sometimes, these services are taken for granted, especially when shopping for the cheapest price.
The MTB home improvement professionals are trained by the manufacturers to install the products correctly. This ensures the work will be done right and the energy-efficient products will work as intended. The last thing a homeowner wants is to spend good money on good products that don’t work well. Owners want windows that are air tight and doors that seal perfectly when closed. The added security that comes with these products is no small bonus.
