Keeping up Appearances – Is Your Home Renovation Project Covered?

What’s on Your Summer Bucket List?

Many of us have bucket lists that involve travelling the globe. But who says you can’t have another bucket list that’s closer to home? Think about what you would really love to do around your house. Would any of the projects below make it on to your bucket list?

Kitchen Reno to Cater to Your Inner Foodie.

Do you revel in meal prep and entertain with gusto? Then a kitchen reno may be in order. Picture appetizers with friends around your kitchen island while you create a gourmet feast. Or hosting weekly family dinners in your expanded kitchen. As the heart of the home, it’s little wonder that the kitchen is the room most homeowners dream of renovating.

Transforming Your Bathroom into an Oasis.

Turning your loo into a sanctuary can be as simple as installing a rain shower or new soaker tub. Or, go all out and add heated floors, natural stone counters, custom cabinetry, double sinks and stunning hardware to your list. Just don’t make your retreat so marvelous that you’ll never come out!

Creating a “Big Kid” Room.

It’s a bittersweet time when kids outgrow their rooms, and that once-adorable racing car bed or princess vanity table is no longer appropriate. Updating a bedroom for a tween or teen could mean fresh paint, a hip comforter and updated furniture. Or it may mean building out to expand in order to house all those sports or dance paraphernalia accumulated over time.

Get Decked Out.

Come summertime, the living is easy…especially with a new deck out back. Just think of all those backyard barbecues you could host for family and friends. Or the hours you could spend lazing on a chaise with a good book. Flush with funds? Add a hot tub…you’ll be the talk of the block!

Face It, You May Need Re-facing.

First impressions are everything, so think about your home’s exterior. Do bricks or stones need replacing? Any doors need upgrading? Is your front walk saying “hello!” or “help!”? Canadian weather can wreak havoc on yards, so if you’re starting from scratch, be sure to slope the land away from the house to avoid flooding.

Remember That Larger Home Improvements Should Be Reflected in Your Insurance Policy.

Your home is your biggest asset, so ensure that it’s properly insured. Review your policy before you renew every year, since needs and policy details can change. CAA licensed Insurance Agents provide complimentary property insurance policy reviews – even if you’re with another company. Plus, CAA Members save 10% on property insurance, so you have nothing to lose…and everything to gain!
