We all dream about retirement. Many people plan for retirement but don’t factor in the cost of their home and its upkeep. It’s great to stay ahead of the curve and plan these updates before retirement.

Home Improvements to Do Before You Retire

  • Decks/Patio Enclosures/Home Additions- Decks, patio enclosures, and home additions are great places to start making home improvements. These types of investments add value to your home in the event of resale and provide leisure and functional spaces for your home.
  • Siding Replacement – Homeowners facing retirement have usually had their home for at least 15 or 20 years. Whether you built your home or it was previously lived in, 20 or more years is a long time to go without siding replacement. Vinyl siding can last about 25 years, but wear and tear, weather, and other issues can shorten that timeframe.
  • Roof Replacement – There are different types of roofing shingles, including asphalt, wood, and composite. Each has a different lifespan and price point. Like siding replacement, roof replacement should occur every 20 years or so.

It’s also important to note that siding and roofing replacement also add equity to your home, much like home additions, decks, and patios.
