3 Great Ways to Put Your Tax Refund to Work
Tax season is upon us, and for some that also means tax refunds are coming! If you’re in this lucky group and are considering the best way to spend your money, we’re here to offer 3 great suggestions that will add meaningful value to your home (likely one of your largest assets).
1. Overall Curb Appeal:
First impressions are key. Whether it’s the feeling your home gives you when you return from a hectic day away or a tactic to help your house fly off the market when selling, curb appeal is something from which we all can reap benefits. See the blog post we previously wrote on the top 10 ways to increase the curb appeal of your home below.
2. Gutter Guards:
These are GREAT for saving yourself time and hard work in those leafy fall months. Gutter guards prevent gutters from clogging with leaves, excess water, other debris, and even pests. Plus, they save you the risk and dangers from having to do gutter maintenance on a tall ladder by yourself or the cost of paying a professional to do it multiple times for you. You can start dreaming of all the things you could do on the weekend besides cleaning your gutters…. now!
3. Protection for Next Winter:
If you’ve heard us talk about ice dams before, you know they are something you want to avoid for your home in the wintertime. If your attic is not properly ventilated and the roofing system is not properly prepared, an ice dam can form causing leaks in your home. Along with ventilation, we also highly recommend Ice and Water Shields, Drip Edges, and Gutter Aprons to protect your home. If you’ve already experienced leaks this winter or would like to know if your house is at risk of ice damming, we’re more than happy to take a look for you.
As a homeowner, spending a tax refund on your dwelling place can add beauty, peace of mind, and strength to your home. We hope these suggestions help as you’re making your plans! If you have any further questions, please give us a call.
