Save money, time and energy Tackle home improvements in tandem

(BPT) - Most of us spend our day multi-tasking. At work or home, we want to maximize our time and resources in order to accomplish the most work while expending the minimum required effort. Home improvement should be no different. In order to make the most of your home improvement resources, it makes sense to undertake certain projects in tandem. Roof replacement and skylight upgrades, new countertops and new sinks - some projects go together like peanut butter and jelly. Doing these projects at the same time can allow you to cut labor costs, save time and achieve the best possible results. Here are three

sets of home improvements best done together: 1. Roof and skylights Replacing an old or damaged roof ensures the rest of your home stays protected from the elements. A roof replacement returns nearly 68

percent of its cost when you sell your home, according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report. Replacing the roof entails removing the old shingles, tiles or other deck covering and the flashing around any existing openings

in the roof. It’s an ideal time to inspect all those openings and upgrade any rooftop structures, such as skylights. It’s also the most convenient and affordable time to replace or install new skylights. If your home has older skylights, the flashing around them may have deteriorated over time, making them susceptible to leaks and less energy efficient. Modern Energy Starqualified fresh air skylights, like the No Leak Skylight line from Velux America, can improve indoor air quality through passive ventilation, greatly reduce dependence on expensive artificial light sources, and save on energy costs. What’s more, the skylight’s specially engineered flashing and other features virtually eliminate the risk of See SAVE on page 11

Things to consider before downsizing your home

The decision to downsize a home is often bittersweet. Many couples who downsize their homes do so after raising a family. A home might be filled with memories, but downsizing a home helps couples save more money, and that financial flexibility often allows men and women to more fully enjoy their retirement. But in spite of the financial impact of downsizing a home, there’s more than just money at stake for homeowners thinking of downsizing their homes. The following are a handful of factors homeowners should consider before downsizing to a smaller home.

Real estate market The real estate market can be a seller’s friend or foe.

Many sellers have a sale price in mind when they decide to sell their home, but the real estate market can be fickle,

Selling this summer? 6 upgrades to secure a speedy sale (BPT) - When the weather warms up, so does the real estate market. Spring and summer are traditionally the seasons when both home buyers and sellers are most active across the country. If you’ll be putting your home on the market this year, simple, cost-effective upgrades can help ensure a speedy sale at a good price. “In the world of real estate, it’s often necessary for sellers to spend a little on upgrades in order to achieve a satisfying home sale,” says Bethany Richmond, communications director for the Carpet & Rug Institute. “Fortunately, some of the most impressive upgrades, such as new carpeting, are also affordable. Such upgrades ensure that you don’t have to spend a lot to achieve a better selling price.” Here are six easy-to-do upgrades that are both cost-effec-

tive and high-impact: 1. Replace carpet It’s easy to see the impact of worn or dated carpeting. “If you don’t like looking at it, buyers won’t either,” Richmond says. “Replacing old or damaged carpet delivers impressive appeal for a modest investment.” New carpet is one upgrade that has a high ratio of value to cost. It substantially increases perceived value for homebuyers without requiring home sellers to spend a bundle. “Even less expensive carpet styles will freshen the look of a room and prepare it for sale,” Richmond notes. “You can get a lot more quality for just a little more money, she says, “and if you take advantage of spring carpet sales, installing new carpeting can cost even less.” 2. Clean flooring If your carpet is still in great

shape, then simply having it professionally cleaned can make it look even better. A deep professional cleaning helps lift tough soils and provides a cleaner, fresher look to rooms. You can find an expert in your area by visiting www.carpet-rug. org. CRI experts can even provide insight into how to remove difficult stains. Not only is carpet a good val-

ue, it’s healthy, too. People with allergies or other sensitivities are installing carpet to improve indoor air quality. Recent studies support previous findings that carpet, when effectively cleaned, traps allergens and other particles, resulting in less dust, dander and airborne contaminants escaping into the air.

Continued from page 3 leaks so there’s a 10-year noleak warranty with the units. You’re getting a new roof with a new warranty so it’s a plus to coordinate your roof and skylight warranties. Don’t have skylights but thinking about installing them to make your space more functional and enhance the enjoyment of your home? Again, roof replacement time is also the best time for a new installation. Opt for solar-powered fresh air skylights, with stylish and energy efficient solar blinds, and the improvements, including installation costs, are eligible for a 30 percent federal tax credit. To learn more about skylights or to find a certified installer in your area, visit www.whyskylights.com. 2. Garage door and garage door opener Replacing a garage door is a

great investment, even if your builder-installed basic door is still functional and in good shape. Installing an upscale garage door costs an average of about $2,791, and recoups nearly 89 percent of that cost at resale, according to the Cost vs. Value Report. A new garage door can have a major impact on your home’s curb appeal, and a newer, sturdier door that is energy efficient and air-tight can help improve your home’s overall energy efficiency. While you’re investing

in a new garage door, it’s a great time to upgrade your garage door opener as well. Homeowners often don’t think about the opener until it stops working, but the device contributes to your home’s usability, convenience and security. Installing one in tandem with a new garage door can help to reduce labor costs and allow you to upgrade from an older, louder model - such as a chaindrive system - to a quieter and stronger one, like a belt-drive opener.

3. Countertops and sinks Typically, kitchen remodeling projects involve upgrading existing countertops. Moving from laminate to an upscale material such as granite improves not only the appearance of a kitchen but also its resale value. Remodeling Magazine says a minor kitchen remodel retains nearly 83 percent of its value. While installing new countertops, simultaneously replacing an older sink with a newer model is a great way to continue an upscale look and save on labor costs. It’s far easier to install a new sink at the same time as the countertops than to do so later. While you’re upgrading the sink, consider a new faucet as well to complete the updated look. Undertaking complementary home improvements together is a great way to make the most of your investment - and save time and money as well.

HOME

Continued from page 6 have to settle for less than you prefer? How fast are similar homes in your area selling? When studying the real estate market, it’s also a good idea to study the market for smaller homes. If you plan on moving into a condominium but the market is not flush with properties, you might end up paying more than you want to for your new home, which might negate the savings you can expect from downsizing. Furniture When downsizing to a smaller home, many couples realize their current furniture is unlikely to fit into a smaller home. That means couples will have to sell or donate their current furniture and then buy all new items for their new home. If it’s been

a while since you purchased new furniture, you might be in for some sticker shock on your first visit to the furniture store. Another thing to consider regarding your furniture is which items you simply can’t live without. An antique dinner table might have been the centerpiece for your family holidays over the last several decades, but there’s no guarantee it will fit into your smaller home. You may want to pass this down to your son or daughter, but that’s only possible if he or she has the room for it. Before deciding to downsize, consider your attachment to certain items that you may or may not be able to take with you to your new home and the emotional toll that selling such items might take if you’re left with no other options.

Proximity to family When downsizing to a smaller home, many couples move out of the suburbs and into cities or towns with more ready access to culture and restaurants. While that accessibility is great, grandparents may find that it comes at the cost of less time with their grandchildren. That’s a steep price to pay for doting grandparents, and it may also impact your children if they frequently rely on grandma and grandpa for babysitting. Before downsizing, consider if you’re willing to move further away from your family. If not, you likely can still find a smaller home in close proximity to your current home and any nearby family members. Medical care Many older men and women must also consider the effect that moving may have on

their medical care. Downsizing to a home in the country may make it harder to maintain contact with your current physician, and rural areas typically have less medical practitioners than more densely populated towns and cities. In addition, if you have been visiting the same physician for years, you may not want to move and have to start all over again with a physician who is unfamiliar with your medical history. Consider how much maintaining your existing relationship with your physician means to you, and if your next home will provide the kind of access to medical care you’re likely to need. Downsizing a home is not just about moving into a smaller property. To ensure you’re making the right decision, many factors must be considered before downsizing.

Driveways to mailboxes: Oft-overlooked items

(BPT) - Selling or staying, it makes no difference - everyone wants a home that looks great from the curb. Curb appeal comes together when all the elements of a home’s facade are in good shape and working together. Driveways that are cracked or pitted with potholes, dingy front doors and other seemingly minor complaints like a shabby, scuffed mailbox, can all significantly detract from a home’s overall curb appeal. Here is a handful of projects many of them quick fixes - that can greatly enhance a home’s appearance. * Repair or resurface your driveway. For many homes, the driveway is one of the largest visual elements of the home’s overall curb appeal, ranking right up there with siding, the roof and the lawn. If winter was rough on

your driveway, it’s time to think of making repairs. Concrete can crack and crumble, and asphalt develops potholes. Both can be repaired quickly and easily. For any driveway repair, make sure the area to be repaired has been cleaned of debris and loose materials. Cleaning with a hose or pressuring washing can improve the entire surface. Repairing damaged asphalt or concrete

driveways not only improves its appearance, it can help extend its life, too. * Put the shine on your mailbox It sits at the end of your driveway and often plays a key role in helping guests find your house. But do you give your mailbox the attention - and the credit it’s due? Little things can mean a lot when it comes to creating curb appeal. While a mailbox that looks good might not get much attention, one that’s ugly or shabby is sure to draw the kind of attention you don’t want. If you live in a community that restricts what type of mailbox you can have, simply give your rusted, stained mailbox and the post it sits on a fresh coat of paint in its original color. If your community has no standards for mailboxes, you can swap out an ordinary looking

box with something that compliments your exterior design. Does your home have a brick facade? Consider a mailbox set in or on a brick pillar. If your house features fieldstone accents, consider carrying that over to the mailbox with a small, stonetrimmed planting bed at its base. * Lavish your front door with some TLC The door is the point where your exterior design meets your interior décor. It’s also an element that significantly impacts how visitors view your home. Give yours a fresh coat of paint or stain, and don’t forget the trim around the door. Next, consider lighting. Is the area around the door well lit? Good lighting is key not only for safety at night but also to enhance the appeal of the See REPAIRS on page 18

the work yourself and you can reduce the cost of repainting even further. 4. Update or upgrade lighting You may find that disco-ball style globe light charming in your kitchen, but the average buyer doesn’t want dated or unusual lighting. Replacing dated or worn fixtures, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, is a cost-effective way to give a room a more up-to-date, contemporary look. If you already have newer fixtures, consider replacing incandescent bulbs with high-efficiency options such as CFLs or LEDs. Although they’re a bit more expensive to purchase, these bulbs last years longer - a selling point for buyers who will reap the value of not having to replace bulbs any time in the near future. 5. Install new faucets A high-end faucet can completely change the look and

Don’t forget to clean all other flooring, including hardwood, laminates and tile. Buyers will appreciate a sparkling clean appearance throughout the house. 3. Repaint in neutral shades Fresh paint is another smart and cost-effective upgrade for sellers. Buyers expect it, yet many sellers hesitate to repaint. Perhaps they like the existing colors or balk at the cost of professional painting services. Yet repainting in neutral colors makes a room look fresher and brighter, and gives buyers a visual “blank slate” against which to imagine their own decor. Do

usability of a kitchen or bathroom. In terms of cost versus value, an upgraded faucet, such as pull-out or even touch-free styles, can dramatically increase perceived value for a relatively modest investment. An upgraded faucet is a thoughtful touch that will set your home apart in buyers’ minds. 6. Replace hardware throughout the home You may have already thought of upgrading kitchen cabinet knobs and drawer pulls, but have you also upgraded hardware in your bathroom or on the front door? These seemingly small items have a major impact on the overall visual effect of a home. In desirable rooms such as kitchens and baths, designer hardware can elevate the entire look of the room. And upgraded door hardware will ensure buyers have a positive first impression from the moment they enter your home.

Continued from page 16 area. Consider sconces beside the door or an attractive overhead fixture if your door has an awning, porch or overhang. Ground lights can accent the effect, either illuminating the pathway that leads to the door or lighting up the door itself. Finally, take a look at the door hardware. Is the handle or knob looking rusted and shabby? Replacing worn or dated door hardware is an easy, cost-effective way to improve the overall look of your entryway. Anyone hoping to sell their home during warmer months can greatly enhance curb appeal by investing in these seemingly minor design elements. If you plan to stay in your house, boosting the curb appeal will make you feel even better about coming home every day to a fresh, appealing house.
