This is the time of year when families drive around and look at holiday lights, all the while noticing the homes with appealing architectural features and well-designed elements. Spotlights on the front door wreath, lights on the porch railing, and candles illuminating each of the windows mean your house either shines, or falls flat. This is a great time to take a look at your house from a curb appeal perspective and ask yourself if it’s time for new doors, shutters, roofing, windows or siding.

According to Remodeling Magazine, you’re less likely to recoup your investment in a major kitchen or bathroom remodel than you are to get back what you spend on smaller, basic home improvement projects. Siding replacement recouped 95.5 percent of its cost in resale value, according to the study. Replacing doors and windows were also high on the list. Entry door replacement (when opting for a steel upgrade) can recoup an impressive 141 percent of its cost in the Chapel Hill, NC area!
