Few home improvement jobs will yield as many benefits or be as cost-effective as an attic remodel. Whether you want more living space, improved storage options or simply to add value to your home, upgrading your attic is a great idea. It will also, generally, take less time than adding an addition or redoing your basement.
So to help you decide if an attic remodel is right for you in 2017, here are our top 4 benefits to this exciting home improvement job.
Increase the square footage of your home
An attic remodel is your chance to convert an unused or under-used area of your home into viable space for anything from a game room or office to an extra bedroom or more storage. You’ll be amazed at how much more room a good attic remodel can provide.
Requires less time and money than other jobs
Because your attic already has a roof, floor and other structural elements in place, the cost to remodel will be far less than jobs that start on the ground, like a basement upgrade or a new addition to your house.
A smart investment
Many studies and just about every expert agrees that attic remodels are among the top 5 remodeling projects in terms of ROI. Most estimates range from a 75% to 85% recuperation of job costs in the home resale value – so on top of all the other great benefits, it’s also a smart financial move.
A fresh new feel to your home
Don’t forget the intangible, but extremely valuable, benefit of experiencing your home in a new way. Suddenly, a home that you’ve lived in for 10 years feels fresh and exciting, and presents new opportunities to use your space!
