MAUMEE, OHIO – Fypon, a leader in the synthetic millwork industry, will once again shine the spotlight on the benefits of curb appeal for the home during the Second Annual “National Curb Appeal Month” celebration in August of 2015.
The month-long focus is dedicated to helping homeowners discover ways to add value and design appeal to their home’s exterior. During August, Fypon provides curb appeal tips on their Facebook and Twitter pages along with extensive curb appeal information and color advice from national color expert Kate Smith of Sensational Color on the Fypon website.
According to the 2015 Cost Versus Value Study* conducted by Remodeling magazine, investments in a variety of exterior home improvement projects on a midrange priced home can have solid return-on-invest for homeowners. The study reports a garage door replacement has an 88.4 percent cost versus value recoup. Other curb appeal elements with strong payback for homeowners include:
– Manufactured Stone Veneer – 92.2 percent
– Vinyl Siding Replacement – 80.7 percent
– Wood Window Replacement – 78.8 percent
– Vinyl Window Replacement – 72.9 percent
– Roof Replacement – 71.6 percent
“Updating home exterior elements is a smart decision for any homeowner,” says JJ Rogers, sales operations manager with Fypon. “If you’re selling your home, these updates add to the value and curb appeal of the house, helping potentially speed up the selling process and the sales price. And, if you’re staying in your home long-term, these improvements are a good investment for the functionality of the home along with the curb appeal aspects that you and your guests enjoy on a daily basis.”
