One home improvements that consistently offers the highest return on investment is the installation of a new front door. The primary reasons for this is that the correct door can improve a home’s energy efficiency and curb appeal. Selecting the correct front door can quickly become overwhelming because of the endless color, window placement, lighting and lock options. The door material we most frequently recommend is fiberglass. While they offer the aesthetics of wood, fiberglass doors offer additional insulation. They’re low-maintenance and do not rust or deteriorate. Beware of installing builder grade fiberglass doors because they are notorious for cracking, which dramatically shortens their lifespan.

Another home improvement that brings a high level of satisfaction upon completion is the installation of a sun tunnel. They work especially well in rooms that do not have access to an exterior wall. Popular placements include closets, halls, stairways, kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. When placed properly, sun tunnels and skylights eliminate the need for artificial light sources during daytime hours. Our VELUX skylights and sun tunnels come with a lifetime leak warranty, offering homeowners the ultimate peace of mind.
