What Are the Benefits of Renovating Your Home?


When we look at the landscape of projects when it comes to owning a home, a renovation can be a substantial undertaking. Before you decide to revamp your kitchen, renew your bathroom, or pursue other projects, let’s walk through the benefits of a home renovation with Quality Homes of Rochester. Let’s look at a few of the most significant benefits of home improvements.


Increase Your Home’s Value

Home renovations, whether cosmetic or functional, increase the value of your home’s resale value. You can estimate the ARV (after renovation value) of your home using this formula:

Current Home Value + (70% x Cost of Renovation) = ARV

70% is the average amount recovered from the renovation cost and varies by project. For example, according to the National Association of REALTORS® Remodeling Impact Report, a kitchen upgrade will garner a 67% cost recovery, and a bathroom renovation has a cost recovery of 71%.


Reduce Energy Costs

Home remodeling can also reduce energy costs by improving energy efficiency. Adding insulation, sealing drafts, and using high-efficiency appliances and lighting all save energy and reduce utility bills. Ask our experts to recommend energy-efficient options for your remodeling job.


Improve Safety

Remodeling a room can help eliminate safety hazards. For example, adding grab bars or a zero-clearance shower to a bathroom will reduce the risk of accidents for family members. Consider new windows and doors to add another layer of safety to your home.


Meet Your Family’s Space Needs

Are you feeling a little cramped in your house? Whether you need space for a home office, a downstairs master suite, or even a playroom for the kids, a home addition will make a huge difference. We’ll ensure your addition blends seamlessly into your current architecture and style for maximum appeal and functionality. Refer back to the Impact Report for the cost recovery for various additions.


Add the “WOW” Factor

A renovation is the perfect reason to change your style and home decor. Start with the space you’re remodeling and pull the design through your home with accents of matching styles and colors. Let your creativity run free!

Boost Comfort

Renovations can make your home more comfortable for everyone. A renovation in a high-traffic area, like the kitchen or bathroom, can provide more enjoyment throughout your home.


They say that the kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s the space where your family spends the most time—cooking, eating, socializing, working, and doing homework. A kitchen remodel can improve the efficiency of meal preparation and enhance the room for social interaction, making it a more enjoyable and functional space for your family.
