It’s 2020, which means that now is the time for New Year’s resolutions and self-improvement goals. But why stop there? The time-honored tradition of New Year’s resolutions is a great way to motivate yourself to accomplish your home improvement goals. Get familiar with the latest trends in home improvement and evaluate where your home may need a facelift in the new year with these popular 2020 home improvement goals.
Maintain Your Roof
Though the roof is a crucial part of every home, it often gets overlooked in overarching home improvement goals. But making sure your roof is inspected and maintained in the new year is a great way to prevent stubborn (and costly) leaks and water damage in your home.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Many homeowners want to reduce their carbon footprint in the new year by taking on a few vital home improvement projects. Updating lighting from incandescent bulbs to more energy-efficient LED fixtures can significantly improve a home’s energy efficiency. Installing energy-efficient windows is also an effective and proven way to reduce energy bills and keep your home more comfortable year-round. New energy-efficient windows will be better insulated and prevent drafts. New energy-efficient windows will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which can mean a much-needed break for your heating and cooling costs.
Invest in New Exterior Doors
New exterior doors are an excellent investment for your home in the new year. Not only is a new exterior door a significant facelift for your home’s exterior, but it can also enhance your home’s curb appeal and improve your home’s insulation. A new exterior door can make your home more comfortable through a long winter season. Installing new exterior doors can be a big project, so be sure to partner with the right home improvement professional to make sure your home is looking great and insulated well in the new year.
Update Your Hardware
Hardware is a great area to improve for the new year. Locks and hinges for your doors and windows can go ignored for long periods, but updating these areas can enhance your home’s insulation and keep your doors and windows looking newer for longer. When it comes to you selecting home improvement projects for the upcoming year, take a look at the hardware around your home and see what you can update for a quick refresher that can make a big difference.
