Home Renovations That Return The Most At Resale

Whether you plan to stay in your house a few years or a long time, it is wise to know which home renovations add the most value to your place.

Here are the six interior remodeling projects that deliver the highest return.

1. Garage door replacement

A new garage door tops the list when it comes to returning cash to your pocket, the curb-appeal gets you back almost every dollar you spent on it when you sell your house.

2. Manufactured stone veneer

Replacing some vinyl siding on your house for stone veneer is a pleasing aesthetic improvement.

3. Entry door replacement (steel)

Replacing your entry door with a 20-gauge steel door, complete with clear dual-pane half-glass panel, jambs and an aluminum threshold with composite stop.

4. Deck addition (wood)

Nothing enhances a yard like a wood deck.

5. Minor kitchen remodel

Consider a minor kitchen renovation- Cabinet boxes are left in place but installed with new Shaker-style wood panels and drawer fronts. Replace laminate countertops with new laminate.  Add new energy-efficient appliances. Update with a mid-priced sink and faucet; repaint and replace vinyl flooring with new vinyl.

6. Siding replacement Replace the old siding with new vinyl siding, trim and corners.
