As an everyday homeowner, it’s not always easy to know what upgrades or improvements to your home will provide the most value for your dollar. We’re constantly faced with potential repairs, replacements and installations that can increase the overall performance of our home. We see advertisements or talk to others about great ways to save money and energy, but it’s sometimes hard to pull the trigger on making these changes. Part of the reason being it’s hard to know what should come first and what can potentially wait until later.

As we’ve mentioned before on the blog, it’s always a good idea to seek the professional opinion of a qualified home contractor.
