Home Improvements.. Increase Your Value in Harrisburg PA!

Home Improvements can Increase Your Value!




In order to maintain a beautiful home, it is essential to make periodic home improvements. Not only will these upgrades add sentimental value, but they will also increase the financial value of your home.


Inspect Your Windows

The largest sources of wasted energy are windows. Inspect the weather stripping and caulk for cracks and reseal air leaks. Decorate your home with energy saving window treatments and install window insulation film to save energy and prevent heat from escaping your home.



Check Your Heating System

Reduce maintenance and utility costs by upgrading your central heating. Close vents near the ceiling and open those near the floor for better air circulation.


Cans of paint with paintbrush


Paint The Interior

Painting is one of the easiest yet most cost-effective home improvements. It is important to keep in mind that neutrals appeal to the largest number of people and that your paint colors will make a significant impact when selling your home.



Change Your Baseboards

Baseboards often get damaged and beat up from shoes and moving furniture. Give your home a new look by changing your baseboards. You could pick a new design or even add some color to them.



Update Your Cabinets

Tired of your outdated cabinets? Changing the hardware will give your cabinets a fresh and more updated look. Buying new hardware is inexpensive and can be installed easily with a screwdriver and drill.



Love Your Home

I'll admit to being in the tank for Lombardozzi, but Sue_D has it right in this case. If he can post the kind of numbers (minus the HR's) that Espinosa did in 2010 in Harrisburg, he desveers both a promotion to the 40-man & an extended look next spring, imo. Lombardozzi is probably going to be limited to primarily 2B due to his arm strength, but he's been a gamer at every level played at so far.
