Did you know that the average American is exposed to approximately 600 ads from the time they wake up in the morning until the time they go to bed?  No wonder it can be such a tough choice when deciding where to indulge and where to cut back when updated your home.  Having been in the industry since 1979, Lindus Construction happens to know a thing or two about this topic.  Allow us to offer our two cents:

Windows: Splurge

When you think about it, your home’s windows are viewed from both the inside and the outside.  Shouldn’t they be a point of pride?  Additionally, windows act as a physical barrier from Mother Nature.  Opting for triple pane makes them energy efficient which will lower your heating and cooling costs.  These windows often have a longer lifespan than cheaper alternatives making them more cost effective in the long run.

Crown Moulding: Skimp by installing yourself or skipping completely  

Most people would agree that crown molding adds a luxurious touch to a room.  With that, comes a hefty price tag, especially if it is installed throughout your home.  Save your cash for an upgrade that is functional and will add value to your home.

Roof: Splurge

Did you know that roofing companies, like GAF, make asphalt roofs with non-prorated warranties on both labor and materials for up to 50 years?  Choosing this roofing material ensures that you’re investing in what is likely to be the last roof you’ll ever buy.

Light Fixtures: Skimp

There’s nothing wrong with having a few standout light fixtures in your home.  However, outfitting each room with them will add up quickly.  It is easy to find cost effective (and trendy) fixtures both online and in big box stores.

Gutters: Splurge

Gutters are oftentimes not something that a homeowner puts a lot of thought into until they’re clogged, leaking, malfunctioning, etc. but their purpose is vital.  Without properly functioning gutters, water can damage your home and landscaping.  Life’s too short and your home is too valuable to worry about clogged gutters.  (Click here to learn more about LeafGuard which are guaranteed to never clog.)

Storage: Skimp (on the price, not the actual amount)

When comparing built in storage to freestanding furniture, opt for the freestanding furniture which can be changed out more cost effectively than built in storage.
