New Report Says Decks and Vinyl Windows Make Good Cents

Watch on your mobile device >>

If you spend $10,000 on a remodel, will you get that out when you go to sale your property?   What kind of value are you getting for a new roof?  A basement finish? Window replacement?

Remodeling Magazine recently published the “2013 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Remodeling Report” that summarizes what home improvement projects people are doing and how much they are recouping on their expense. It features 35 of the most popular projects and includes 81 cities.  You can access the report at  In 2012, the three remodeling projects with the highest return were 1) Fiber Cement Siding Replacement; 2) Entry Door Replacement; and 3) Attic Bedroom Remodel, followed by minor kitchen remodels, garage door and window replacements.

The data drills down by city as well.  In Denver the number one remodeling project that you’d get the most amount of return will be a wood deck addition in the backyard.  The deck makes sense because we spend a lot of time outdoors in Denver.  Putting in vinyl windows came in second.

I have the data on Denver and would love to share the information with you.  To find out more about what home improvement projects make sense now, call me at (303) 523-4364 or email me at
