In addition to renovating your home for your own enjoyment and comfort, you'll also be adding to your homes resale value. The renovations with the most impact include basement remodels, bathroom remodels and kitchen remodels. Other valuable changes include front doors, insulation and attic changes including insulation and converting the space to a usable space.

There's no need to break the bank in order to update your home. A simple fresh coat of paint inside and out is one of the most cost-effective ways to give your home a new look.

Many areas are offering incentives for home improvements that make the home go green.
