The COVID-19 pandemic and time spent indoors due to quarantine ignited a new spark for renovations and remodeling. With new variants still wreaking havoc across the country, we appear to be on the same path this year.

Research shows that home remodeling projects have remained unaffected despite the economic recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Remodeling projects in the past year had increased by 3 percent. This year, remodeling projects spending is forecasted to increase further.

Homeowners are taking the lockdown opportunity to spend their savings on improving their comfort and perhaps adding value to their homes. Many have invested their pandemic savings on home improvement projects to get a good value for their home in the market.

Here are some home additions projects that you can invest your pandemic savings on:

Stone Veneer

You can enhance your home’s exterior and entryway by replacing vinyl siding with stone veneer. It is not only cost-effective but also long-lasting.

Although the options for natural stone material to be applied are limited, stone veneer can be installed on almost every surface. You can cover the surface with cement or brick; you wouldn’t have any compatibility issues with stone veneer.

Adding a Fireplace

Fireplaces are one of the most sought-after commodities in today’s real estate business. If you’re thinking of home additions, consider installing a fireplace. Investing in a fireplace will make your home more comfortable and add more value.

A fireplace is economically friendly and increases home value by 50 to 75 percent.

If you’re considering adding a fireplace to your wall, you should consult with a professional to ensure that it’s aesthetically the best fit and safe.

Brick Patio

Provided you have the room, brick patios are an excellent addition to the exterior structure of your home, making it more comfortable and cozy. It also adds a lot of perceived value.

Brick patios make the outdoors more charming and attractive. Additionally, brick is a sturdy and robust material that makes the patio more durable, so you wouldn’t have to worry about your patio fading or deteriorating.

Waterproofing Chimneys

You can also consider waterproofing your chimneys to prevent mold from growing on your masonry. Chimney repairs can be costly, and protecting the masonry by waterproofing your chimneys can prevent the extra cost.

Waterproofing the masonry will also allow the brick material to breathe, releasing water vapors. Another benefit of waterproofing your chimney is that it will keep the bricks from cracking or getting discolored in the future.
