Trendy Renovations to Boost Property Value
Every property's value can be boosted with the right renovations! Whether your home is from the 1950s or from the 2010s, it's important to consider what you can do to improve how much it's worth. These are the top renovations that are trending this year and why they can add so much value to your home. Update Your Siding Your siding needs to be updated for buyers to even consider walking into your home. Board and batten steel siding has been a hot topic in recent years, as buyers want siding they can have faith in and love the large range of options of color. If your siding is older, discolored, cracked, or warped, it's a good idea to update it before your home hits the market. Attic Bedroom Conversions This update has become incredibly popular within the last couple of years and can add up to fifty thousand dollars to the value of your home, depending on where you are. Attic spaces are generally underutilized, and by turning them into extra bedrooms, you can create more space for a larger family to move into. This can be time-intensive, but make sure you make everything out of sturdy and predictable materials. If you put in a cheap ladder or inexpensive spiral stairs, buyers won't feel safe turning this into a bedroom they actually use. Increase Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency is on the minds of every buyer. Nobody wants to overpay to keep their home at a temperature they’ll enjoy, so it’s a good idea to invest in ensuring your home traps in the temperatures and runs as efficiently as possible. One of the largest ways to do this is to install polyiso exterior wall insulation. Regardless of what siding you have, this insulation will block out the weather and keep the interior of your home at a comfortable temperature. It's also a great idea for homeowners to invest in getting smart thermostats. These are a must for almost every property and will keep your home at a comfortable temperature at all times. Not only will you be able to control your home's temp no matter where you are in the world, but you can also keep an eye on trends and figure out what your usage may be higher in some weeks. Updating Old Windows How old are your windows? Older windows aren't the best for your HVAC system and will make your energy bill skyrocket. If you have older windows, and a couple of them are out of date, but they're all generally functional, consider a minor repair or update. Replacing portions of your windows will save you money while still ensuring your windows look like a matching set that makes sense together. Keep Moisture Away Moisture is no property’s friend. Water can cause rot, mold, flooding, and more, so it’s important that you take the time to guide it away from your house. You can do this through outdoor drainage and landscape drainage grates, by planting a rain garden, or even by adding a sump pump. Buyers are terrified of their homes flooding, for a good reason, so invest in making your property as flood-proof as possible. Minor Remodels Small remodels can change everything while adding the highest return on investment you can find! Instead of updating your entire kitchen, or doing a full bathroom remodel, take on small portions of these rooms and update those instead. Pay attention to how much money you spend, and avoid putting too much time and work into these while still making them look good. A full remodel brings in a far lower return on investment, so it’s important to straddle that line. Add Visual Intrigue Visual intrigue is a must! This mighty tool can convince anyone that a property is worth more than it may actually be and gives you a chance to guide buyers' eyes to what you want them to see. From clever use of a white shiplap wall in an otherwise boring space to fun tile in the bathroom that creates a zen and spa feeling, have a little fun with your property. Avoid going too overboard or severe since this might scare buyers away. Create Outdoor Spaces Outdoor spaces are king when you're trying to build value into your property! This means adding spaces where you can gather with friends and family and room for you to feel like you can relax for a while. These spaces can be anywhere from a deck to an exterior kitchen or a lounging area around a fire pit, but be aware of how much money you're spending. Avoid spending more than 10% of your home's current value on the lawn, or you may struggle to recoup it. Your Property Is Valuable Whether this is your first property or your fifth, it's important to keep up with the trends. Follow some of these renovations to watch your property's value skyrocket in no time! For any home updates that you need help tackling, your local TruBlue is the perfect crew.

Fall Prevention Tips

Fall Prevention Tips

October 5, 2022
Earlier last month, it was Falls Prevention Awareness Week. This week takes place each September, starting on the first day of fall, but fall prevention is important all year long. According to the CDC, every 20 minutes an elderly adult dies from a fall in the United States, with many more injured. Falls are the leading cause of injury and death among individuals over 65. Luckily, falls are something that are preventable. We've come up with various tips and tricks to avoid falls inside and outside of your home. Clear your walkways of wires and other tripping hazards. It’s no surprise that we often trip over something. Wires, toys, uneven flooring, shoes, the list goes on. To eliminate the chances of tripping over an object, ensure that everything is picked up and out of the way. Wires can be managed by cable ties, and if they have to be run across the floor, you can tape them down so your feet can’t catch the wire underneath. Toys should be placed in a designated area, such as a toy bin or storage cube. Shoes can go on a shoe rack and stay out of the way. When it comes to uneven flooring, you might not consider the edge of area rugs. To avoid this hazard, you should secure the rug to your flooring with carpet tape. If the carpet in your home is uneven, consider hiring a professional carpet crew to re-stretch and secure your carpet and make it flat once again. Doing this can make areas in your home safer where there might not be a wall or furniture to help keep you upright if you were caught unawares. It’s no secret that where there’s water, there are slippery floors and a higher chance of falling. Add non-slip bath mats to your bathroom to make a safer transition between your shower and your floor. Showers and tubs are not only dangerous to exit, but also to bathe in. If room allows, add a shower chair and a handheld showerhead to aim water where it’s needed when sitting. If there’s no space, add a non-slip mat to the bottom of your tub for more grip when standing and moving in the shower. One other tip for avoiding slips in the bathroom is to clean your tub often. Soap scum and lime can build up over time from the runoff of your soaps and shower products. The runoff created coats the tub and quickly becomes a slippery surface. For more stability in the shower, you can add grab bars to help stabilize yourself when entering and exiting the tub. For more bathroom tips and tricks, read THIS BLOG. When you think of falling, you often think of falling up or down the stairs. To make your staircase safer, ensure that you have two handrails on either side of the stairway. The next thing to do with stairs is to make sure that the stair surface is even and grippy. If you have smooth wooden stairs, consider adding a stair runner or individual stair carpet grips. The extra texture can help prevent slips, especially if you tend to wear socks around your house. If you can’t reliably get up and down the stairs, invest in a stair chair lift. The lifts are often rated for up to 350 lbs. and can be the difference between a safe trip down the stairs and a trip to the ER. The last thing for stair safety is to avoid carrying anything up and down the stairs that leaves both hands unable to use the railings. The last thing that you can do to help prevent nasty falls is to take a look at your lighting. If you can’t see where you’re headed, you’re more prone to falling. Install nightlights between your bed and the bathroom if you often get up in the middle of the night. For the outdoors, install motion lighting so you’re never caught unawares in the dark. Make sure that your stairs and hallways are well lit in both the daytime and at night. Falls are responsible for over 800,000 injuries and 32,000 deaths each year. And it’s important to avoid and prevent situations where falls are likely. Don’t go up ladders without spotters. Hold on to railings when going up or down stairs. Look at where you’re walking to avoid a potential trip hazard, such as wires or slippery surfaces like a water spill. If you or a loved one needs help identifying and preventing the potential safety hazards in your home, TruBlue offers a Home Safety Assessment. A certified technician will review all the rooms in your home and come up with an extensive list of hazards and solutions to minimize the dangers of the home. This type of maintenance can often let people age-in-place for longer. Find your local TruBlue today!
Carmen Hendricks, Owner of TruBlue of Vienna stands with three of her TruPro Handymen.
TruBlue Total House Care’s mission of becoming America’s most trusted and respected handyman company is something other handyman companies can’t relate to.   Most handymen companies have earned a reputation for unprofessionalism, leaving the client’s job site dirty, showing up late, or even not at all. Most of these handymen are usually treated as disposable, which is the opposite of what we try to provide here at TruBlue.  TruBlue goes above and beyond with our handyman care and produces owners and employees that truly foster a sense of belonging on the job site and in the company. 1. One of the key differences that helps put us above the “chuck-in-a-truck” handyman companies is that we pride ourselves on having professional and highly qualified handymen there for you when you need them most.  TruBlue’s handymen are not the average handymen that you call in back of your local phonebook, our handymen are held to a much higher standard than any other handyman.  We make sure they are background checked, bonded, and insured, and provide our customers with a level of professionalism that only TruBlue can provide. 2. Another one of the great reasons to choose TruBlue is our dedication to the senior market and serving them as best as possible.  TruBlue is partnered with many large brands in the senior home care industry such as, Right at Home, The Helper Bees, Honor, Comfort Keepers and Senior Home Services, other brands highly dedicated to senior home care and the overall well-being of seniors.  These alliances help show the passion that we have for making sure our clients, especially those looking to age-in-place have someone truly dedicated to them. 3. At TruBlue we aim to make our employees feel just as welcomed at work as they make our clients feel at each of our different jobs. TruBlue sets a higher standard in work culture that each of our locations to go about instilling.  A positive work culture is something almost all handyman businesses never come close to, creating an incredibly negative work environment.  With a good work culture we can ensure employee morale stays high and creates the perfect environment for everyone at TruBlue to do their absolute best.  This also creates the sort of family type atmosphere that helps make TruBlue’s TruPro handymen a step above all the others. 4. Lastly, choosing TruBlue means you can have first hand access to our monthly or quarterly handyman subscription service, House Care Plus, the fully tailored full service house care model that allows you to pick out chores and things you need done on a repeat basis.  This service offers our customers an efficient, affordable way of making sure that their household tasks, to-do list chores, and monthly maintenance don’t get left undone. Overall, TruBlue has so much to offer, and we truly pride ourselves in the many different ways we set ourselves apart from your average “chuck-in-a-truck”, no matter if that is done by our dedication to being your total house care manager or being your one-stop shop for senior home modifications.
