Home improvement and home insurance

Most home improvement projects are undertaken for similar reasons – to enhance the home itself and/or to increase the value of the home.

That said, in order to figure out if a specific home improvement project is worthwhile, a series of questions are usally asked:

  • Will this project increase the liveable space in the house and/or enhance the home in any other way?
  • Will this project be relatively cost effective (materials, labor, etc.)?
  • Will this project most likely increase the value of the home?
