Fast Facts: Home Remodeling

Are home upgrades worth the cost? Yes, though projects that enhance curb appeal, rather than interior remodels or replacements, are most likely to recoup dollars according to the 2010 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling magazine. The annual survey uses input from realtors in 80 cities to rank home remodeling projects according to those that bring the greatest cost recovered at resale.

A midrange entry door replacement, for instance, brings the highest return at a national average of 102.1 percent, followed by a midrange garage door replacement, at 83.9 percent, and a fiber-cement siding upgrade, which recoups 80 percent of the cost. Step into the home, and a midrange kitchen remodel recoups an average of 72.8 percent. Meanwhile, a wood deck installation also generates a 72.8 percent return.

The top interior projects for resale value included an attic bedroom and a basement remodel. Both add living space without extending the footprint of the house. An attic bedroom addition is estimated at more than $51,000 and recoups an estimated 72.2 percent nationally upon resale; a basement remodel can cost upwards of $64,000 and recoups an estimated 70 percent. Improvement projects that are expected to return the least are a mid-range home office remodel, recouping an estimated 45.8 percent; a backup power generator, recouping 48.5 percent; and a sunroom addition, recouping 48.6 percent of costs.
