Low interest rates increase home improvement opportunities

In a recent article in the Boston Globe newspaper, Kermit Baker who is director of Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies said, “Lower financing costs are beginning to stabilize the downturn in existing home sales, as they also are reducing the cost of financing a home improvement project.”

We recently signed a contract with a homeowner who echoed the above.  The homeowners told us that they had perfect credit and have wanted to have new siding and windows installed for quite some time now, but “never got around to it”.  Sound familiar?

They decided that with interest rates lower than ever and with the tax credits available for replacing their old windows that now is the time to do it.  In fact, their research has shown that with all incentives and lower overall costs from contractors (us) that they are saving approximately $5,550 than if they had done the work earlier.

Maybe the time is right for you too.  For the 4th year in a row Remodeling Magazine says that residing your home with James Hardie® fiber cement is the #1 return on investment.
