    Soffit

    Vinyl siding is durable, maintenance free and comes with a long warranty that is transferable to the next owner of the home. Most vinyl siding has a warranty good for 20 plus years! With over 20 color options vinyl siding is the best and most cost effective way to make your home look more up to date.

    These grated vents get clogged with dust and dirt, wasp nest residue, allergens, and many other clogging elements. Once clogged your attic can no longer “breathe” which in turn causes mildew and sometimes mold to grow in your attic. At Home Contracting actually cuts these vents out and makes ports for better air circulation throughout your attic and then we cover the old wooden soffit using VENTED vinyl panels. So you not only gain the practical benefits of the soffit but you also gain a new look! The soffit is usually a different color than the siding and offsets the main color of the home. The picture above another good look at soffit. This house has porch soffit as well.

    Fiber Cement Siding or Hardie Board®

    Another siding option is cement siding also known as Hardie Board. If you have a colonial style house or an old style home and you want to keep the look this is the way to go. Fiber Cement siding is not as cost efficient as vinyl but it has a longer warranty and adds a different look to your home.

  • Tax Credits

    For the past few years, the federal government has offered homeowners tax credits for certain home improvements that were aimed at increasing a home’s energy efficiency. While the most popular and generous tax credits, such as the one that allowed you to claim up to 30 percent of improvements such as a new roof or hot water heater, have expired, you can still get credit for other significant energy-efficient improvements.

    According to EnergyStar.gov, you can claim a tax credit for 30 percent of the cost of installing a geothermal heat pump, small wind turbine or solar energy system in your home. The credit has no upper limit and applies to both existing homes and new construction, but not to rental properties. This credit is good until Dec. 31, 2016.

    You can also get a credit of up to 30 percent of the cost of residential fuel cells, up to $500 per .5kW of power capacity, EnergyStar.gov says. This credit is also available until Dec. 31, 2016.

    While the initial cost of these improvements may seem significant, they can dramatically decrease home energy bills in the long run.

    Of course, depending on the type of home improvement or repair you want to complete, you may also be able to claim a deduction on your taxes. It may be a wise decision to consult with your tax accountant to see what, if any, portion of the cost may be deductible before launching a significant home repair or improvement. And, for your home repairs throughout the year, keep receipts and discuss the improvements and possible deductions with your accountant when he or she is preparing your tax return.

    Knowing ahead of time which, if any, tax credits or deductions your home improvement may qualify for can help you make a better decision about how to use credit to fund the work. Since how you use credit affects your overall credit score, knowing the cost of a project before starting it can help you better manage your credit.
